So you’ve decided you want a room in the perfect flatshare – how do you go about finding it? The first thing to do is decide what ‘perfect’ means, don’t forget, it’s got to be your perfect flatshare - everyone will have different ideas of what that is.
Shared accommodation has been around for years. Whether the image that springs to mind is Rising Damp, Men Behaving Badly or The Young Ones, we all have a pre-conceived idea of what living in a flatshare is like. Flatsharing is changing though, and it might just be time to throw away these preconceptions and get some new ones.
