Tiny city centre studio flat available for £500 a month branded ‘absolute theft’

A studio flat advertised for rent for the cost of £500 a month has been branded as ‘absolute theft’.

The flat located in the Merchant City area of Glasgow city centre in the building where the Aldi supermarket is located.

The cost of the rent for the studio apartment has sparked a strong response from one Glaswegian, who took to Twitter to share their concern about the price after spotting the listing online on property site Rightmove.

Alongside a photo of the flat in Blackfriars Road from the listing, they tweeted: “I just have to share this. This studio apartment in Glasgow city centre is going for £500 per month. To be clear, this is EVERYTHING.

“That is the front door, kitchen, living room, bedroom and the toilet door is to the right of the front door. £500 a month. Absolute theft.”

Glasgow Live reports that the listing for the flat, which is available to move into next month, reads: “Zone Group are delighted to introduce to the market an unfurnished studio first floor apartment within this modern development in the highly sought after Merchant City.

“The internal accommodation consists Of lounge/bedroom, fitted kitchen (white goods included) and bathroom.

“The property further benefits from electric heating, double glazing and security entry system.”

Last week, the M irror revealed a tiny London flat with a bed crammed into the kitchen is on sale for £115,000, the same as a three-bed semi-detached house in Leeds.

Both properties had been listed on Zoopla in the last 30 days, highlighting the huge property price divide between the capital and almost anywhere else in the country.

The studio flat in Bromley comes complete with kitchen appliances – but a photo shows the head of the bed sitting a foot from the oven door.

The only other interior photo shows a bathroom.

Meanwhile, the house in the Yorkshire city’s Swarcliffe area has three spacious bedrooms and a fitted kitchen.

There’s also a back garden with a section of decking with wooden railings.
