Seeking female housemate

8 bedroom house

Newington Green

Room available 1 February

Rent 450 including council tax and bills

Please read through this advert carefully before applying.

We are a housing co-operative, which means there isn't a landlord but instead each occupant is a member of a self-governing entity that has a history stretching back to the 1970s. In reality this is not as formal as it sounds, but it does mean we require someone who is interested in living in a community household. This means the new member of the cooperative must be willing to contribute some of their time and energy to achieve all the tasks akin to participating in a small social housing community. This includes tasks such as attending regular housing meetings, managing financial accounts, maintaining the household and joining in with semi-regular meals and social events. In return, the rent is low and the house tries to enable its members to pursue things they may not otherwise be able.

The Victorian house is large, homely and in a great location near Newington Green: 5 minutes walk from Canonbury Overground station, 10 minutes walk from Highbury & Islington, and 2 minutes walk to Newington Green with good bus routes, grocery shops, pubs and restaurants.

The house is big and bright with high ceilings and lots of original features. There is plenty of living space with a large sitting room on the ground floor, and an open plan kitchen and dining area in the basement that leads onto a lovely private garden. On the ground floor there is a shower/laundry room and toilet, and on the first floor there is a bathroom and second toilet. The bedrooms vary in size but each has a wash basin and space for a double bed. The room available comes partially furnished, although can accommodate some changes the incoming member may want to make.

We are currently 3 women & 3 men aged between 26 and 54 seeking another female or non-binary person to become an integral part of our home. Housemates include an artist/web designer, a builder/poet, a DJ/designer, a social worker, a PhD student, and a grumpy old cat. We're all very friendly and sociable, not a particularly noisy household, but we'll often dine together and we throw the occasional party.

We will meet applicants in the week commencing 28 January 2019. Selecting the most suitable person will be a two-stage process made up of informal interviews followed by a meal with existing members. This is best conducted in person, if for any reason this is infeasible then let us know in advance and we can try to accommodate.

Regrettably, the house is not wheelchair accessible. It includes 6 stairs to the front door, 8 stairs down to the kitchen, and 6 flights of stairs up to the currently-available room. There is no phone entry system. However, we are open to trying to accommodate any access issues that we can surmount. Please let us know in advance if you have anything you would like to be aware of prior to the interview process.

At the moment, the cooperative is exploring the possibility and implications of members claiming housing benefit and universal credit.

To apply, please complete the questions on this link: Please do not apply if you're a male, if you are a couple or if you are looking for a short-term let.

All the best and thank you!
