You’ve probably been told that to live in London, you have to spend a huge wad of cash for a tiny box room – but one man is renting out a room in Stratford for a pound a month.

Yeah, that’s right. A pound a month – but of course there is a catch.

Thankfully, the catch is actually pretty reasonable – with no sexual favours in site.

All house owner Adam Mughal is asking is for the renter to work part-time for him, helping him work developing a web application – meaning they have to possess web or mobile development skills.

After the advert went live on website Easy Roommate, he received 1,200 replies from interested applicants, showing that people will compromise for a room in the capital, where rents are extortionate.

He said:

I don’t have the resources or the budget to hire a full-time web developer but this opportunity allows someone to stay in London where accommodation isn’t cheap and work for me part-time.

I work in the city full-time as well so I thought this was the only real benefit I could offer to people.

I have been bombarded with emails, it has just been crazy. Maybe this has opened a Pandora’s Box for people to offer accommodation in exchange for skills.

Now while the idea is admirable, you have to wonder just what ‘skills’ some people will want in exchange for a room.

If the idea appeals to you, it might be wise to clarify before moving in.
