House hunters have been left dismayed by £750 a month rent for a flat that has a window to access it and what appears to be an ex-cupboard as a loo.

Those searching for properties on the website rightmove couldn't believe their eyes when they spotted the horrible rental.

It is on offer for a staggering £750 a month and is in a great location for transport links on London's Edgware Road.

But it can only be accessed through a window with steps leading down to the main room and the bathroom appears to be a former cupboard.

It continues a worrying trend for tiny barely habitable spaces being offered for huge prices.

Just last week, a landlord tried to rent a tiny flat in Stockwell, south London, with the bed pushed inside a cupboard for £1,050.

Although the Edgware Road flat is cheaper, it also appears smaller, with a tiny strip kitchen.

Those who rent it will also have to climb through a window and down a rickety-looking wooden staircase to access the main bedroom and living room.

People have commented on the ad saying: 'How can this be legal?' (

A description on rightmove reads: "Newly built studio flat to rent. Rear of shops, close to public transport and plenty of restaurants.

"Please note that the property will be available to move in from 03/06/21 as we are finishing the kitchen fit out.

"Property comes furnished or unfurnished (tenant can decide). DSS enquiries welcome.

"No Students. No Pets, sorry. No Smokers. Family Friendly. Bills not included. Property has parking. No Garden Access."

Those who spotted the ad said they were horrified by the quality of accommodation.

One simply said: "This is ridiculous."

Another said of the property, which is marketed by OpenRent: "How has this even passed building regs omg."

One said: "How can this be legal? Such a health hazard."

One fumed: "These landlords are really trying to flip it however way they can."

Another simply said: "The audacity."

And another one said: "I assumed it couldn't possibly be real until I clicked through and saw for myself."
