must be veh expensive - are you a 6 figga frigga?
its a council flat... and nicer than that would imply.
either that or the paupers are the most vocal.
cue millions of "i'm minted" replies
i live in a two bed flat, with my gf and another couple. ITS CHEAP. ITS AMAZING. WE ALL GET ON. ITS NOT CRAMPED.
Everyone on here who poured derision, astonishment and general lookie-down-on-this-naive-fool-iness can now kindly FUCK OFF AND DIE.
pretty small but is £140pw
if i wanted a 1 bed in the same area i'd be looking at £220-250pw probably
must live somewhere tasty :P
that would be if i rented one right now. rents around here have gone up silly amount in the last two years. i used to have a studio that was twice the size of the one i'm in now and it cost £150pw.
but it seems like rents depend entirely on what you use to look. I've seen the same places advertised with ridiculous differences, some around 20%...
3 bed, zone 2, s'all good. 150pw.
If I can afford a one bedroom place near Vauxhall, then that’d be great. I’d imagine that it’ll be in the region of £800 a month, which I should be able to live with (fingers crossed).
And no, I’m not a six figga frigga.
i was in a two bed in vauxhall that was £1000/month.
although it had cockroaches. woo!
but I've got to the point where I feel like I need somewhere on my own.
My housemate shouted (and I mean shouted) at me for doing her washing up last night.
YOU MAKE HOUSES! CAN'T BE THAT HARD!
oh and gissa gig!
i.e. a room with a kitchen and bathroom.
I'm paying £650 a month. I'm not rich so it just means I've got no spare money.
Do you live in the Queen's garage?
It's a nice room but sadly pretty much the going rate (council tax, water and everything but electricity and phone bill is included).
Not so bad then.
My sis used to rent a studio in Archway and was paying about that, it was quite a nice area though.
I visited what I was expecting to be a shitty bedsit in Holland Park, which turned out to be a one bedroom flat in a leafy street beside the tube for 150 a week. I was trying to stop salivating and remain calm when I said 'I will take it'.
The landlord rang me up later that day and said he was Welsh and had undervalued it by 60 pounds A WEEK because he didn't live in London. SO CLOSE. I was almost in tears when I put the phone down.
It's about £900 per month. I would've attempted to buy somewhere if I didn't think house prices are going to tank even further.
If my office wasn’t moving from London Bridge to Putney, I would have stayed put until the end of this year and then started to look to buy somewhere.
I'm almost tempted to phone up and arrange a viewing to see how bad it is.
i thought the photo was of it, because the wooden frame in the picture looks like a bed.
but not the bedroom. telling.
