Subject:Room to let, Bethnal Green E2
Posted by:hirudo.
Time:10:56 pm.

My flatmate is moving out towards the end of July so we're looking for someone to take over his room. Good sized room, comes with double bed, built in wardrobe and plenty of space for other furniture.
Room is in a three bedroom flat with shared living room, kitchen and bathroom, plus a balcony, with the other two bedrooms rented by me and Rob, both thirtysomething goths. Great for transport (trains and buses galore!) and pretty much anything you can desire in terms of local amenities.
Must be tolerant of a bit of mess as I work from home designing and making clothing, which means lots of fabric, patterns and the like! I do try and keep it contained to one of the bedrooms and a corner of the living room, and I tidy it up every week.

£400 per month, plus bills. All mod cons including wifi. 10 mins walk from Bethnal Green tube (zone 2) and space for parking (requires a residents permit).

If interested please feel free to PM me or email at thecyberologyATgmail.com.

Subject:Room(s) available in Colliers Wood/Mitcham borders
Posted by:lproven.
Time:9:01 pm.
CR4, but very close to SW19. Like less than 100 metres from it.

It looks like my current lodger is moving out at the end of October, but I do actually have a small room available now if anyone needs it. I would consider either letting both, together or separately. One is a medium-sized room with built-in wardrobe, the other is small but with lots of shelves. Zone 3 on the Tube, 30min from town on the Northern Line, but fairly cheap as a result! Also surrounded by parks and open spaces, including Mitcham Common and Morden Hall Park. Bit of a garden to chill out in on sunny days. I'm about 15min walk from Colliers Wood Tube and Tooting mainline station, 10min on the bus from Tooting Broadway or Wimbledon and 20min walk from the Croydon Tramlink, so pretty well connected transport-wise. On two nightbus routes, as well - N155 and N44,`.

Previous occupants have included uon and sinnymaker. :-)

I'm a vegetarian non-smoker with no pets (any more) but I don't hugely object to meat-eaters or smokers. Nor would I massively object to another cat about the house, actually.

Subject:Flatshare in Muswell Hill Available Immediately
Posted by:kingseesar.
Time:10:50 am.
Hi all!

I have a flat in Muswell Hill and my current housemate is moving out this weekend, so I need someone asap to take over her half of the lease.

On offer is a large double bedroom with private bath and a shared large kitchen and large living room. It's a first floor flat right in the middle of Muswell Hill (amenities listed below) Rent is £600+bills which typically amount to around £100.

Here's the details:

First off, I have a puppy, so any non-dog fans or those allergic to dogs, please consider that.

More specifically, rent is £590 a month (£1175 total). Power and gas run about £90, but they do go up and down with the seasons. Water is usually £300 a year, but I can change that to £15 a month if you prefer. Internet/phone is typically £45-60 with all the goodies, before I subtract out my share - so you should expect to pay around £17-20. To put things in perspective, my current housemate has been paying about £95-£120 in bills each month. For now, the council tax is half because of my full-time student status, but I don't know what that figure is exactly. Somewhere around £75. It will change next February when my schooling ends.

My girlfriend is around a lot and she typically chips in on some things as well, so these costs my go down some from time to time.

Local amenities: Sainsbury, M&S, and Waitrose (next month) are walking distance, Super Tesco just down the road. All the major banks here, five charity shops, yummy food, and the Odeon. three night buses, and five to ten mins to Highgate; ten to fifteen to Finsbury Park; five to ten to East Finchley; Bus routes W7 (Finsbury Park via Crouch End), 43 (London Bridge via Old Street/Angel), 102 (Brent Cross via Golders Green), 134 (Tottenham Court Road via Camden Town), 144 (Edmonton via Wood Green/Turnpike Lane), 234 (Highgate Wood (north) to the Spires), 299 (Cockfosters via Southgate/Arnos Grove), and 602 (Golders Green School Route). There's also 11 ZipCar's within walking distance.

The deposit is the big thing and I think it is two months rent in advance (so £1175.00). I can't remember the credit check, but it's bank statements and a maybe an old bill/utility and then fill out a form they send of to someone that steals some of your money. I think it's £35? Maybe more. Hornsey Agency is the property rep.'They've always been pretty nice and has taken care of me well in the past.

And just so you know, they know about my dog, and there's nothing in the lease that says no pets, but they also prefer to turn their heads and ignore that he's here, so sort of do the same.

Please get in touch if you're interested. I'll be around to show the house every day until Tuesday (gotta sort something before then), except Saturday day.

My numbers are 077 8075 6021 and 020 8444 0439 or you can email me at kingseesar@netzero.net.

Thank you!

Subject:Looking for a new place to rent in London
Posted by:twisted_times.
Time:2:54 pm.
Mood: busy.

Well, following on from my last post, it looks like my landlady wants me to move out too, so yours truly is looking urgently for a new place to rent out in the London area. I'm on Benefits right now, so the cheaper the better, although "cheap" is a relative term in London.

I'm not too bothered location wise although somewhere reasonably near tube/train/Overground stations and/or bus routes would be handy for obvious reasons. I've lived in West Ealing and Acton for the last four years so it would be nice to stay in the vicinity, but I'll see what comes up.

Ideally I'd like a furnished double bedroom, although as long as there's a decent bed/mattress I can live without much other stuff. A reasonable occupant-to-bathroom ratio would be good to avoid hassles in the mornings when I get back to work. It would be great to find a single bedroom or studio flat I can afford in London; go on, surprise me! :)

I'm a 38 year old bi, poly, kinky, alternative-ish easy going guy who's a decent cook and does the washing up after causing any kitchen chaos, so it would be great to find some equally drama-free flatmates to share with.

If anyone can help me out finding a news place or moving house in 3 of 4 week's time then leave a comment here, message me or drop me an email to dke17 [at] hotmail [dot] com and let me know.

Subject:Room in Holloway
Posted by:lt_ellis.
Time:2:39 pm.
Mood: optimistic.
Large room in flat just off Holloway Road, in the Big Red/Odeon area, available immediately for £600 inclusive of all bills.
The room is fully furnished, the flat has  wi-fi, and you'll be sharing with me only. I work mostly nights, and I go out every weekend, so the flat is overall pretty quiet which means you'll be spending several evenings a week by yourself. I point this out as it turns out that many people want constant company when at home, and I really can't provide this, so ideally you work full time regular hours, and you'll come equipped with your own life and friends. Which, if you're an alty/goth type in London, will probably mean people I also know. I don't wish to come across as a complete bear, and I've had nice evenings in with flatmates, movies and drinks, but overall this probably suits someone who, like me, likes a bit of peace and quiet at home and does the partying and boozing outside.
Other than that, the room is fairly large, double bed, decent amount of storage, there's a largish living room with a balcony, separate kitchen with washing machine, and all the normal mod cons, and the area is very well connected, the Piccadilly line is 5-10 min walk away, dozens of buses a couple of minutes away, including 3 night buses and a few 24/7 bus routes as well.
There might be a dedicated parking space available to rent in the courtyard if you have a car, but I would need to double check with the local authority on that.

I am an Aussie goth looking for a housemate or two to join me in setting up a new house.
I think I am looking Wood Green and Walthanstow areas.
This person needs to be comfortable with cats and not have any of their own, I have a grumpy old tortie who does not play nice with other cats but loves humans. Most of the time.
Looking for some who is relaxed about shared house living and is understanding of my sewing hobby but not students who are looking for a house Mum. ;) I also am not with keeping with drugs in my place of living, mainly because I bored of tweeked conversations easily. I drink but don't smoke and am fairly laid back with most things.

Quite social and a member of the London Gothic meetup group and London Goth sluts, go to different nights but generally not Slimes.
I will be looking to move in the next 4 to 6 weeks. Anyone interested or know of anyone?

My name’s Laura,
I'm 28 years old and come from Italy.
I arrived here in London a week ago, and now I’m looking for a single or double room to rent short term (at least one month), and as soon as possible (from September 5th).
I need to improve my english, even though I have a degree in foreign languages and Literatures,
and to apply for a job but first, a nice place to move in before I start my job search is more than an imperative.
I am a clean and tidy person, don't smoke or have any pets with me,
I'm private and quiet at home, read books and study.
I rarely have friends around, nevertheless, I get along quite well with everyone.
I am very thorough and take what I do seriously.
If there's any queries, ask away.
Waiting (and trusting) for reply, sincerely.

Subject:Two Rooms in Shared House - Leeds
Posted by:timsinister.
Time:3:52 pm.
Mood: cheerful.
Greets! I'm letting people know that I have two rooms going in a three bed house in Leeds, in the Hyde Park/Headingley area. We're a fifteen minute walk from The Library (Flock) and the University (Wendyhouse and I suppose studying), the Burley Park station is ten minutes away, and two main bus lines into town run right by us. We also have a Spar garage, local shop, Co-op and Sainsburys all within close distance.

Rent is £265pcm, bills on top (good broadband, gas/electric/water). The agency is reliable, and the landlord lives nearby and is very good at responding to requests. We have a large front room, a huge kitchen, a small but cute back yard and a small fourth room for storage / guests.

As a housemate, I'm a Mature Student, working part-time. I don't smoke, I do drink, I don't have pets but I do have a band who occasionally rehearse in the kitchen. I play videogames, watch Star Trek and probably fulfill every other stereotype going!

The place is available straight away - if there's any queries, ask away!

Hi folks!

Our current flatmate is moving out to be with her bf, so from the middle of July we'll have a double room available in our three bed flat in Bethnal Green (E2)

The flat is a ten minute walk from Bethnal Green tube station (Central line, Zone 2), plus there's also the overground station and a smorgasbord of bus routes to choose from. Tons of shops and amenities.

Rent is £400 pm plus bills (on average about £50pm) and you'd be dealing with our landlord directly, who is excellent. Sharing with myself (I work as a life model and clothing designer) and Rob (IT tech), both goths and geeks. The flat itself is spacious, wood flooring throughout, shared kitchen, bathroom/toilet and large living room, central heating, broadband and Freeview. Smoking is allowed but only out on the balcony. Unfortunately cats and dogs aren't allowed but you can get away with small pets such as rats, tarantulas, etc.

If you're interested or have any other questions, please email me at thecyberology@gmail.com

we're 3 goths/alternative people (2 guys and me) who have to move to a new house by the 28th of June (thank you, landlord, for not paying your mortgage...) - we are urgently looking for a 4th person to join us.

Rent will be around £400 per month
area: Turnpike Lane/Wood Green (ideal for clubbing - the 29 goes 24 hours from Camden and the West End!)

The house will have a garden.

Subject:Room available in Crouch Hill/Finsbury Park, London
Posted by:mcorreia.
Time:6:04 pm.
Hi there, I'm looking for a flatmate for a pleasant 2-bed flat in Crouch Hill, about 12mins walk from Finsbury Park station. Ideally somebody 25-45 years old, clean, tidy, non-smoking and who generally enjoys a bit of peace and quiet at home.

It's a spacious double room, £525 per month excluding bills; ideally I need somebody to move in around 1st March for a 6-month contract. I have been here 6 months already and the landlord is reliable. It's the first & second floor of a Victorian terrace in a residential street. No garden or balcony I'm afraid. The room is furnished and has are two large built-in wardrobe units with lots of storage space. Shared kitchen with table & chairs and plenty of cupboards, nice living room, smallish bathroom. Room in the hallway for bicycles.

More details and pictures are here:

I'm 36 years old, working as a painting restorer and have strong interests in the arts and literature. I enjoy good sci-fi and a bit of gaming too. I'm not out clubbing as much as I used too but still enjoy a trip to the pub and Slimelight etc. fairly often.

Get in touch if you're interested and tell me a bit about yourself! Thanks :)

Subject:Room available in North London, 15th February
Posted by:cbr_paul.
Time:8:47 pm.
£502.50 pcm (Council Tax and water rates included)

Nearest station: Archway, Upper Holloway
Nearest pubs: The Landseer, North 19, Nambucca

We are 4 friendly, professional alternative types looking to find someone to move into our shared house on a quiet street off Holloway Road. There is good access to central and north London, Camden and Kings Cross and there are some lovely pubs within a 10 minute walk.

We are all professionals in our late 20's/early 30's so would be looking for someone similar. No DSS please.

The property has 2 bathrooms (plus one en suite), a nice big kitchen and living room, and a good outdoors garden for the inevitable summer BBQ parties and smoking. We do like to throw the not-too-infrequent house party with our friends although we do live in a quiet residential area with young families, so having loud after parties is generally a no-no.


Pictures are available on request; if you are interested, please contact Paul on 07727230702 after 5pm on weekdays or welsh-paul@blueyonder.co.uk, or Vicky on vhotchin@gmail.com.

Posted by:veracausa.

Hi there,

I am looking to move at the end of March and i'm either looking for a room in an existing share or possibly start up a new share.
I currently live with randoms and would quite like to move to somewhere with like minded souls who share the same interests in music, nightlife etc.
At the same time im not looking to move into a party house, preferably somewhere that is fairly quiet during the week.

My budget is around 500 per month but could pay a bit more. looking to move around the east finchley/highgate/archway area.

Please contact me if you want to know more about me or your interested in starting up a new share :)

Hi there,

I am a 30 year old goth girl looking for a new place to live in London. I am looking for a large double room in the Dalston/Stoke Newington/Hackney/Stamford Hill and surrounding area.

I work from home for part of the week, therefore I require a decent sized room and a good internet connection. For the rest of the week I work outside of London but am in London at weekends. I have all my own furniture, therefore an unfurnished room is preferred. I am a non smoker and do my share of the household chores because I like to live in a clean house.

I am happy to look for a flatshare with someone and I have the majority of furniture required to furnish a whole flat if necessary. My budget is £400 - £700 PCM

Please contact me here or via fenbane@gmail.com
