What is the difference in dimensions and rent value between single and

Most rooms I've seen are advertised as double but some seem too small for a double bed and storage. I'd like to know if there is a minimum size for a double. How are they categorised and what's the difference in rent value. I would like to pay what's fair. Thanks

  • Hello - it looks like false advertising to me. Local authorities cannot set binding minimum room sizes - however, there are other powers available to them to ensure that there is no overcrowding happening in shared properties (houses of multiple occupation). I would say look at as many rooms as you possibly can and you should get a feel for what price is fair. If you have any further difficulty, please feel free to post up again here.

  • Hello, I'm planning to relocate soon (hopefully) and I would like to ask if there are any tricks or tips to "negotiate" in such a case, i.e. I do like a certain room, which is obviously too small to be a "double bed" but it's listed as such? thank you
