More proof living in London is crazy! £500PCM for this mattress under the stairs…

Alex Lomax, 23, saw a “furnished” room for rent on London2Let website, based in Clapham, south-west London she went to visit it.

The advert described the room as:

“We are looking for a friendly, open-minded and outgoing person to join our houseshare in a great period house in Clapham.

We’re a good bunch and like to chill out a lot together – not really looking for somebody that just wants to stay in their room. Room comes with a bed.”

  • Sociable Flatmates
  • Easy access to local tube stations.
  • 1 single furnished room
  • Room comes with a bed
  • Bills £60pcm

It actually turned out to be this:

flat-scam-london

Ms Lomax who had come especially to London from Nottingham to view told the BBC:

“There was a landlord and I was shown the kitchen and the under-stairs cupboard – he seemed deadly serious, which is the worrying part.

Do you think all online room listings should legally have to include photos of the room?

The listing is still live on http://www.london2let.com/rooms/to-rent/clapham-SW11/L2L13385-101/

You can get an actual room for that price and often it includes the bills as well so that is a bit crazy.
