Agreed, i found my new place that way. Move in on Monday, can't wait.
17 Oct 2009 15:06

gum tree is nigerian scammer central so just beware,anything that involves any kind of western union etc bank transaction is a deffinate scam,infact nearly everything I have ever tried to do on gumtree has resulted in somone trying to pull a scam,so I wouldnt even bother with it.

cheers seenmy, after searching on there it's become quite easy to tell what's real and what's fake, but yeah i'll take extra caution.

I don't know if it applies to London, but I've used globrix.com for my last move.
Once you've searched you can choose to view results in map format, and I just found that and the general ease of use to be the best I've come across.
And I think in my whole 3 months of searching I came across one scammer and it was ridiculous - he said the property could only be viewed from the outside and that he would only fly over to view it with me if I paid one months rent deposit in case 'I' was a fraud!

clapham common/clapham south, how nice/nasty is this of a place to live? Never been there, but some decent looking propertys and not far into centre.

Clapham is full of neo-Fulhamite young professionals who have no interests other than of continuing their University lifestyle of getting smashed at the weekend at generic chain bars.
17 Oct 2009 17:16
Is that good or bad? I love several drinks and partying, but the yuppie chain bar bit turns me off it.
17 Oct 2009 17:18
full of aussie cunts too.
17 Oct 2009 17:19
clapham is full of cunts, fact
the location isn't that good either
north of the river ftw
17 Oct 2009 17:24
Hmm, where is better then.. hard trying to find somewhere in a decent area, only guessing where's decent..
18 Oct 2009 11:19
What's clapton like… /any reccomendations on decent places, young person, social etc.

I don't really know Clapton that well, but I would consider living in Dalston or Stoke Newington which are about the same distance out and roughly the same in rent but have a lot more going for them. They say Dalston is the new Notting Hill after all.
