Flat to rent for almost £1,000 a month in North London but there’s a problem that might give you sleepless nights

THIS flat could be yours to rent for almost £1,000 a month – but it could give you sleepless nights.

The property in Enfield, North London, is listed online as being a furnished studio flat for £960 per month.

At first glance, it appears to have all the basics, including a living area, kitchen and bathroom.

But on closer inspection, it seems next to impossible to fit a bed – ALL doors open into the bedroom.

An ad on Gumtree reads: “Self-Contained Ground floor Studio Flat Available in Enfield N18.

“The flat comes furnished and has a private bathroom and kitchen.”

It adds the “small ground floor studio” is for “single occupants” only who must be eligible for the one bed rate.

But it fails to point out how crammed potential renters would be.

Both the front door and bathroom door open onto the tiny bedroom, meaning any bed would get a good bashing any time someone enters.

A wardrobe at the bottom of the room also adds to the squeeze.

The ad by Smartlet Estates goes on to read: “The Studio is situated in a quiet property within a quiet in neighbourhood.

“The property is close to the local shops and public transport.

“Please get in touch with us for more information, or if you are interested in a viewing.”

The Sun Online has contacted Smartlet Estates for comment.
