A tiny studio flat in West London is on the market for almost £900 a month – and tenants will have to get used to sleep yards from the kitchen sink. Those living in the property on Union Road in Northolt, will also have to live with uncovered piping in both the main room and the en-suite bathroom.
Even though it costs a whopping £875 a month, bills are not included in the price. While those on housing benefits can apply, the advert states it is not suitable for students or those with pets.
There isn’t a garden attached to the property, but it does come with parking. It is described as being in a “great location”, just off the A40 and around a 20-minute walk away from Northolt and Greenford stations. One pictured attached to the studio flat advert shows a sink that appears to have black-brown grime in it.

Homes in Northolt are on the market for up to £730,000, while the borough of Harrow has seen properties advertised at an eye-watering £4.6 million. This is despite the average salary in Harrow coming in at £29,000 a year, according to software company Payscale.
In its draft borough plan, announced in 2020, Harrow Council said it wants to build more affordable homes and reduce wealth inequalities in the borough. Harrow Council leader Cllr Graham Henson said: “There are significant differences in our local communities with some areas amongst the most deprived in the country, while neighbouring streets can be amongst the most affluent.” The landlord of the Northolt flat has been contacted for comment.
