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:
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.
