Not the same as the weird houses thread, this is just for listings on SpareRoom, Gumtree etc which give you hives from either the landlord’s desperate attempts to create living space out of shite, frankly bizarre furnishing decisions for a rental (I’m getting rage issues from how many of the big bedrooms on SpareRoom are over-furnished with huge unnecessary armchairs that ruin a perfectly good amount of space), or passive aggressive listings.
Inspired by this nightmare from the landlord thread:
But also this listing - only one photo of the property (helpful); the second photo is a delightfully passive aggressive reminder to call rather than message (backed up by the description). It’s not like you’d want to know what the property looks like or anything!
If you really love this sort of thing and haven’t come across Joel Golby’s London Rental Opportunity of the Week series, you’re in for a treat! They can sometimes be a bit annoying but I always enjoy reading them:
Honestly should probably trigger warning this thread because I feel like there will be listings so deeply bleak that it could undo months of therapy. May the great depression commence!
