    Enormous double room (more like a flat) for short-let in Tooting flat share

    We have a massive double room – at present fits: three seater sofa, TV, double bed, huge desk, wardrobe and other furniture, two large rugs and there is still space for a bunch of people to break dance. It is bigger than your average one bed, studio flat and certainly the biggest room I have seen in ten years of renting in London. Is in a friendly flatshare in Tooting Bec, sharing with a couple (who will be away for a month eo December till eo Jan) plus one other lovely Finnish girl.

    Lots of space – really is an amazing room. Would be ideal for a couple looking to stay until the end of Feb 2010 or a single person who needs a lot of space and who can afford £583 PCM. Flat is in a pretty gated Victorian court, with outside space and natural parquet flooring throughout.

    Short let - we need someone to take on the room/rent until the current contract is up on Feb 28 2010. If you wished to stay beyond this date, this is an option but there would be two other double rooms that would need to be filled and then a new contract started up with the agency. Or it could just be a short let for up to 4 months.

    At the moment the rent divide for this room is £583 PCM and I would need to take a 5 or 6 week deposit to be sure that the rent was covered until Feb 2010. My boyfriend and I currently share this room and it really is a great find, we just want to get our own place now.

    Flatmates are fun and friendly but the flat is generally quite quiet and chilled.

    The room is unfurnished – the furniture there at the moment is mine – but the agency do provide a bed, wardrobe and there is a lovely fireplace and huge bay windows, with blinds. The court has free parking space and communal garden areas. It’s a very pretty, chilled part of Tooting and a mere 5 or 6 minute walk to Tooting Bec tube. The neighbours also all seem good fun/friendly.

    I could do a little contract with whoever moves in and sign papers to say that a deposit had been received. My only ask would be that rent and bills are paid on time and that the person/people who move in can stay till Feb 2010.

    Available now – we'd just need a few weeks to find our own place.

    PM me if you are or know anybody who might be interested.

    not sure if this will get any response, but here goes...

    my friend and I are looking for a couple of rooms in a nice house/flatshare. We ideally don't want to go over £450pcm (excl bills) and would like somewhere north or east, in particular somewhere like stoke newington, dalston, islington, bethnal green, finsbury park, highbury, camden, etc. but will consider anywhere if its a nice house and nice people, preferably no further than the outer border of zone 3.

    we are two young fellas in our early 20s working in film, friendly, easy going, laid back and (relatively) tidy. If you have a couple of rooms that need filling get in touch!

    Hey guys

    I have a double room for let in my recently redecorated flat in South Croydon. The flat is 3 minutes walk from South Croydon rail station and about 15 mins from East Croydon (where trains run all night from Victoria!!). The flat has all the mod cons you'd expect including a big TV in the lounge, PS3 and broadband access. I'm looking for £400 a month for the room and the only bills you have to worry about are 1/2 the Gas and Electric (I pay everything else).

    I'm a 35 year old Project Manager, I'm into the gym, socialising with my mates and even do a bit of cooking occasionally.... I've lived in shared houses for the last 15 years so I'm pretty used to the communal living thing. I do smoke but have no issues with smoking outside the flat if that's something that bothers you (if not then inside is also fine with me).

    Anyway if there's anyone interested and you want to get in touch please pm me.

    Cheers guys

    Hello all

    I'm looking for a place in East London, preferably with an easy commute to Greenwich. I'm a full time student, female, non-smoker who also works part time (evenings and late nights.) I'm generally quiet and tidy, respectful of other people's space/possessions but fairly laid back when it comes to sharing my stuff.

    I do have a cat, he's good with people but doesn't get on well with other animals, so I'm looking for a cat-friendly house and preferably a room on the ground floor. If anyone needs a room filled please drop me a pm.

    Guineveretoo Mostly bewildered

    I am going to have a spare room available for let again shortly, as my lodger is going home to New Zealand (not because of anything I did to her!) :)

    I am looking for someone who is female, young or young-minded, likes cats but doesn't have any of their own, doesn't smoke, pays rent reliably, doesn't mind a bit of mess/chaos... In fact, I am looking for a clone of the lodger who is leaving! :eek:

    My house is in South Norwood, so lots of fast trains to London Bridge and not so fast ones to Victoria, plus access to East Croydon, which has trains to lots of places.

    PM me if interested.

    I should probably have added what the lodger gets, rather than just what I want :)

    The room is quite small, but cheap, and the rent includes bills, which include, of course, wifi.

    The room is only available until next summer, because I have a relative moving in then.

    I'm planning to move to London in June (when my lease and job) end here. I'm currently paying £325 a month in Brighton. Still have no idea what job I wanna do (I'm 27) but my lady lives in London and Brighton has very limited stuff employmentwise. Any tips on where to move/which websites to look for jobs etc would be much appreciated. :)

    Room in flatshare available (East Dulwich/Forest Hill)

    Room available in a flat in East Dulwich (Forest Hill end), near park and woods, wicked views! Need someone to move in by 10th June. Send me a message if you're interested or want to know more, some basic detials below:

    Current flatmate, and long term friend, is buggering off back to Sardinia. Sad news it may be but I'm hoping something good will come out of it and I'll find a decent new flatmate/friend.

    The estate is well kept, quite funky 70's architecture and has amazing views - the block isn't quite a highrise but it's on a hill, hence the views of rolling hills/trees one side and the city the other. Backs on to Dawson Hill, perfect picnic spot (which I've seen photos of on this site somewhere).

    Rent is £460, deposit £460, bills average about £100pm each.

    Ideal flatmate will be friendly, happy, funny, stable, fragrant, considerate, tidy-ish and responsible but definitely not boring or too serious with it. Age isn't too important but between 23 and 34 sounds about right.

    I am freelancing at the moment, fundraising for the arts, festivals, music events and the like. I like to party (for free), am known for my stamina, but I don't party in the flat, it's generally a quiet place apart from occasional visitors.

    I can send photos of the flat/room to whoever is interested.

  17. Mation

    Mation real life adventure worth more than pieces of gold

    Two people I know have places going, one long term, the other short term till October.

    The October one is to share a furnished four bed Victorian terraced house in Vauxhall with one other person (a friend of the landlord), each paying £250 pcm + bills of ~£50 pcm. The landlord is planning to sell, which is why it's only till October. I don't know why it's so cheap! (Apparently it's a nice house.)

    The other is a furnished double room (with en suite bathroom, although there's no loo in it) in a flat in Dalston, closer to Dalston Kingsland than Junction, but still only a few minutes from the latter. It's a bit of a party flat... £400 pcm + bills.

    Both are available now. PM me if you're interested. :)

    I'm after a place to live from the 1st Sept- Islington/Hackney would be ideal, I'll be new to London (moving from Bristol for work) and it'd be cool to meet some new folks. I'm 27, I like to have fun but my major raving days are behind me and I also know better than to shit where I eat...

    If you have/know of anything suitable then please drop me a PM.

    Where to find a *decent* house share….

    Currently 24, living in a rather dull shared house, looking for somewhere new, but how to find a decent house share??? Somewhere down the middle, with ‘averagely normal’ people - no alcoholics or axe men, but equally no boring old people who just want to sit in their room all night….

    Really I’m looking for a home not a house, but alas this is proving difficult.
    Alas I don’t know anyone looking for an extra housemate and as a relative new comer to London, I don’t know that many people anyway.

    There are plenty of houses on the likes of Gumtree or Spareroom.co.uk, but especially on Gumtree, no one seems to ever write about the other housemates, I find this bizarre, I really don’t care if the house has a BBQ or not, but I would like to find out basic stuff like if the other house mates are even of a similar sort of age.

    Any tips or encouragement short of spending a lot of evenings traipsing round West London looking at houses….it’s making me depressed!

    hipipol Peckham Wry

    Short lets, call Mr Lawrence at the Mr Lawrence Wine Bar in Crofton park - he owns the shop next door too and has converted 6 flats above both shops and tells _ I dont have a number, but he seems a decent guy - they are for short lets but I dont have a clue what the rent is. Its two mins walk from the station so easy enough to get into town

    Oops, I not on any kickback from the geezer, just thought if he was still short of a place etc...
