If you've ever been a single adult looking to rent, you'll know that finding a property can be tricky; especially if you're looking to rent in and around London. Some less-than-savoury landlords can look at single occupiers as the perfect opportunity to squeeze out astronomical rents for tiny box-rooms in houses of multiple people.
The government has decided enough is enough and they will be changing regulations so that a room cannot legally be occupied by someone if it measures less than 70 square foot.
Despite these new regulations, it's always worth finding property through an ARLA agent to ensure that the property is legally compliant in all aspects.
