A dream house in a desirable London location, for only £1 a month. What’s the catch?
The catch is you have to use the landlord as a slave.
Still sound good? Well the advert has been removed from Flatshare.com but I’m sure with some amateur detective skills you could locate the property.
Richie Walker found the ad for the house in Fulham and thought it was too good to be true, which it was.
The ad stated:
I have a lovely house in Fulham with three bedrooms, three bathrooms and garden. I am willing to offer the master bedroom suite free to a lady or young couple who will make and treat me like a slave.
The master bedroom has a large ensuite bathroom and a small attached room which can be used a study/dressing room. A bit about me. I am 63-year-old professional man.
I have been a slave before and those were the happiest days of my life. I do not seek an intimate or sexual relationship and see myself as a domestic and financial slave.
Richie declined the offer, telling The Mirror “I just wanted a regular flat and I’m happy to pay for it.”
He went on to say:
Even if I wanted to take up the offer I’m not sure they would let me have a dog there. Then again, if he was my slave I could make him take the dog couldn’t I?
You definitely could, Richie.
The lesson here, if it seems too good to be true, it’s probably going to be too good to be true. Especially if it’s an advert offering a house rental in London for £1 a month.
