A buy-to-let landlord in south London has been blasted for offering a corridor as a flat.
The flat in Brixton was listed on Zoopla until yesterday at an asking price of £845 per calendar month (pcm), before being removed.
It was initially listed for £901pcm in August, but was reduced by the landlord in September.
The re-purposed corridor has no room for a proper bed, while the radiator is placed halfway up the wall.
In addition, the flat features just a small cooker hood, a microwave, a sink, a cabinet, along with a washing machine – but there is no space for an oven.
Journalist, Joel Golby, who discovered the online property listing, wrote: “If your housemate left a sofa in the hallway of your share-house, you’d be annoyed, wouldn’t you? But if you do it and you’re a landlord and you can lock the door either side of it, then somehow you can charge £845 a month for that.”
