    You made it hip Thora!
    Same with me and countless others and Brixton and Deptford.
    Urbanite types are outliers for gentrification!

    Only just seen this thread. These prices are insane. Not too long ago - three years - we were renting a three bed house in Streatham Hill for 1200 pcm.

    A friend has lived in the same flat on Lewisham high street for the last 15 - 20 years. He's in a bed sit and there's just about enough room for a double bed, and at a push two people can sleep on the floor. There's a secure outdoor space to store bicycles.

    £250 a month when he moved in. It's still £250 a month!

    Sounds like he was paying over the odds back in the day then.

    "Market rent" would be about three times that now.

    Over the whole stretch, inflation adjusted, hard to say if he's up or down taking the whole stretch into account. I'd say up, and increasingly so, but not by that much so far...

    For a shitty bedsit in Lewisham, £750 pcm is quite low nowadays.

    Yeah, if he's not in profit yet he soon will be.

    edit: I say 'profit' but ykwim...

    I used to go out with someone who's nickname was "cupboard Dave" as he lived in a cupboard a little longer than a single mattress. It was out of London and the 90s though, and a mates flat. I think his rent was about £5 a week.

    Definitely Dave, not Sam? We had a mate who lived in another mate's cupboard.
