Landlord tries to rent out a bathroom with a desk shoved in as an ‘office space’

Believe it or not, this isn’t happening in London.

Over in central Glasgow, a landlord is trying to let what’s being billed as an office set up, though it appears to just be their bathroom with a desk and kettle added in.

This ‘office space’ can be anyone’s for £50 a week.

Summing up the listing, someone wrote on Twitter: ‘Someone in Partick is renting their s***er out as an office.’

The ‘property’ has a toilet, a window above it, a mini fridge, kettle, books, a desk, lamps, a chair and instant coffee.

Never have a make-shift kitchen and loo been in such close proximity

The listing, which also boasts of fiber broadband, made it online 43 days ago, seemingly with little interest unless to mock it.

The landlord wrote on Gumtree: ‘Small and compact space ideal for solo working.

‘Located on the 1st floor of a tenement building in Partick, the space has its own private entrance.

‘Included is fibre broadband connection, 2 x desks, mini fridge, toilet and sink, underfloor heating, lamps, mains supply, kettle.

‘It’s a nice quiet spot and was recently converted. Available from 8am to 6pm Mon to Fri and would provide keys to longer term renters.’

One person commented on Twitter: ‘Zoom calls on the throne’.

Another said: ‘Okay where is the shower? What about wet paperwork? There is a proclaim there waiting to happen.’

The strange listing is just another display of how bizarre the renting landscape has become.
