Do you want to live in something the size of a Tube Carriage?

More and more people are turning to tiny living spaces so they can afford to live where they want to – mainly in Central London.

According to Which? there has been a 40% rise in the number of properties coming to the market with a floor plate less than a London Underground Tube Carriage … or 37m2 … or around 400 sq.ft.  That is not a lot of space!

Whilst a small flat will usually cost less – with an average price around the £280k mark – there are some potential issues with getting a mortgage to cover this.  There are some lenders out there – RBS and Nationwide – who won’t lend against properties less than 30 m2.

This is, according to many, the way things will be in the future.  With more and more people wanting to live near the city centres (wherever they live), there is more and more pressure on the limited space available.

Small, micro living is a way forwards.  If this is the way you choose (and it seems like a sensible way to get a toehold on the property ladder to us!), then you are not going to have much space to store … well anything much really.  But don’t despair …
