I posted about this a few months back, and there was a bit of interest, so I'll pop it up again. My old landlord has a few properties available in edgware road/marylebone london at the moment, and I was looking for flatmates. The rent would be about £130 a week each, i think possibly heating and water included, and council tax is quite cheap in westminster.
The only thing is that it would be for the whole of the september 08 to june 09 period, and deposit would need to go down this month. But if anyone is inetrested, pm me, and I'll get more details over to you.
