Estate Agent Forced To Remove Tiny Flat Listing After Threatening Calls

No, seriously, there's a bed in the kitchen.

Posted on

The listing on Rightmove.co.uk stated the flat has access to "en-suite bathroom and kitchenette", but no dimensions were included in the advertised details.

It's fair to say people on Twitter were less than impressed...

As reported by the Islington Gazette, the estate agent has now revealed that he was forced to remove this flat listing due to “threatening phone calls” from the public.

Local housing advocacy group Islington Private Tenants have written a blog post commenting that while the price for this particular space was shocking, the issue of unreasonably high rent for substandard accommodation is not uncommon.
