Flats in London are a bump. I remember having this convo with M12 a while back.

Basically look to share a flat on gumtree or something.

1000pcm is a decent budget for a 1bed

should be able to find something easily, especially out in north-west

kilburn normally has a lot of stuff

1000pcm should be fine for Kilburn. NW is a sick area as well.

you should have no problem finding something for 1000 per month, 1 beds in east are usually 700-800.

Dunno why I didnt think to make this thread earlier tbh, been on the hunt for a disgusting while, I wanna stay in south but kinda close to central, so been looking at London Bridge, Canada Water/Surrey quays, or just good ol New Cross, needless to say rent in these areas is a super bump.

Flat's in London take an average of 4 days (or something around that) to be taken once advertised. Piss take.

My one bed flat in Stoke Newington costs £1260 per month.

I'm aware I'm a victim.

Just rent brother. Not including council tax or bills or nuffink!

I would buy a house if I could, but I haven't got 25/30 grand sitting around for a deposit.

Rightmove.co.uk, Zoopla, findaproperty. They advertise flatshares on there and you can filter the results. Gumtree I found tricky to search through for decent ones, alot of fake ones on that site.

Im saving up now fam.

Not about paying rent for too long. Gonna drop a deposit on a house (hopefully).

However the way the prices are nowadays 10-20k probably wont even do it anymore :(

If anything i'll move to Kent/Surrey or elsewhere just outside London.
