    Is it legal to specify a preference by gender ?

    Loads of places do this BTW, I'm not singling Boycey out.

    It's not a business/service, so yeah.

    Ok. I would have thought it was a service but fair enough if you know different.

    It's a private advert for a room in a house/flat share. It's not a business/service.

    not sure - there are some bits of equalities law that are different depending on whether you're a business or it's about something in your own home. i'm not sure if this is one. and expressing a 'preference' may be different (in law) from saying 'no X' or 'Y only'

    this is gumtree's line on it

    Yes, I can see why letting a room in your own home might be different to a house share with a live out landlord.

    Not that it matters what I think,it's what the law says that matters.

    And again, I'm not singling this ad by Boycey out, it's something I've long wondered.

    Basically we are a large communal warehouse and maintaining a fairly balanced gender mix is A Good Thing IMO. We have three rooms to fill and if we at least get a mix we're all good :)

    A friend of mine is looking for a flatshare. Somewhere around Crystal Palace, South Norwood, West Norwood, Penge or Sydenham. He can afford to pay £500 / month (and £600 / month at a stretch). He's (a young) 50, a very creative kind of a guy, also very musical - plays the guitar. He's very sociable, a really great cook and loves to talk. He's a smoker, but more than happy not to smoke in the place, and go outside to smoke. He's fully employed.

    He needed to move from his last place at short notice (his girlfriend broke up with him) and has struggled to find a flatshare as most flatshares seem to have a much lower upper age limit, so he's temporarily staying with friends. So he could move pretty much immediately. I think he'd be happy with a short let too as it would give him a bit more breathing space to find something more permanent. He's looking on spareroom mainly, but I thought I'd post on Urban to help.

    I'm amazed by this very central hostel place. It's almost cheaper to stay here than rent in London.

    We have a room coming up in our share in gipsy hill, is your friend still looking?

    Thanks for getting back to me, your house looks brilliant. :)

    My friend has now gone into a "professional" houseshare, where they only have a shared kitchen and bathroom, but don't really socialise, so he's not really happy there, but it was the best one available at short notice. I think he'd be keen to move out from there, but I'm not sure what the arrangements with the landlord are in terms of notice periods, etc. When is your room coming up? Should I ask my friend to get in touch with you?

    This is the ad: Large double room in friendly creative shared home

    The room is available ASAP basically as we're trying to make sure the vacating housemate doesn't have to pay loads of rent whilst not living here. So technically we need somebody in October but more likely September x

    I'm looking for a room somewhere in the Crystal Palace / South Norwood / West Norwood / Gipsy Hill area. I've just had to move as my landlord is selling the house I was renting a room in and I'm now sofa-surfing with friends. I can afford to spend £580 tops. I'm a 51 year old graphic designer, but I'm currently studying to become a TEFL teacher, as I want to move back to Spain where I lived in the mid 90s. I'm creative, musical, love to chat, spend time with my friends, I am a mean cook (especially curry). If you have a room or know anyone who's looking for a flatmate I'd really appreciate it if you could get in touch.

    Hello all,

    The lady who organises my badminton club in Flaxman Sport Centre (Camberwell) has a room to rent in her house. She's super nice, really friendly and a really good laugh - very social, always organising BBQs and stuff. She rents rooms out in her house mostly to young foreign students.

    The room is a single room in very friendly household (I've met many of her lodgers as they often end up at badminton club). The area is well served by buses and trains and only 4.5 miles from the City of London and the West End. Loads of amenities in the area, plenty of shops etc. Two leisure centres within walking distance.
