Accommodation for 2023/24 in London

hey, i’m going into my second year at uni in london and am searching for any available accomodation or cancellations for the upcoming year.
preferable price would be around 800 a month or less.
however i also wouldn’t mind joining anyone who’s looking for housemates for next year or joining anyone to look for a house.
let me know :smile:)

The things is is that I’m 2nd year and on every waitlist accommodation. In my 1st year I had to switch rooms due to issues. I’m wary of flat shares cuz once u start the lease, u can’t move rooms etc. if u problems but I know rooms are going to fast whether accom or private so idk if I should wait and hope that rooms become available after results day. What uni do u go to, I would defo consider doing a buddy up?

The best advice I can give is look to for 10 room mates with good credit histories.

Upon finding those 10 room mates, each look to acquire credit cards with at least £12,000 credit limits (it's likely this will be spread amongst a few cards).

After receiving your credit cards it's of great importance that you each withdraw the maximum of you can via cash machine (£500 a time means 24 withdrawals).

Pool your money together so you have £120,000 in total and then approach a mortgage broker to apply for a 'joint' mortgage.

Once you have found a house for around £950,000.00 use the deposit money and apply for a 25 year mortgage fixed at a rate of 5.75 for 5 years.

That'll equal a monthly payment of just £5,221.58 a month, or £422.00 split between 10 room mates.

Therefore meaning you'll be spending nearly 50% less than the £800.00 a month you first stated and be acquiring an asset :smile:

(I understand some many say this is not 'constructive' advice, although that is entirely subjective for reasons I will respond with if asked)
