Cross-Cultural Chit-Chat - Lodging, renting and mortgages

The media are warning about the next big housing babble, rents in London reach sky-rocketing levels, so for a change a totally different topic as a starter: What are your experiences with accommodation in different European countries?

Here in the UK it is quite normal to take in some total stranger as a lodger or share a flat with people you never met before even as a professional – does this happen in other European countries too? Are people in your country also eager to buy a house as soon as possible – just to sell it again a couple of years later when the life situation changes?

Come along on Wednesday, 4 June to our usual location, the Penderel's Oak to share your funny or less funny experiences with flat and house hunt or letting rooms out. I'm looking forward to meeting you from 6pm onwards.

    I had a great time, it was a little lively, I wonder whether it is as noisy downstairs?

    Sorry for the short notice, but unfortunately I won't be able to attend. My grandmother passed away last night and I will be flying back home in a few hours.
    I was looking forward to this Meetup; hopefully I'll make it to the next one.

    As usual I have reserved us some tables in the back of the pub before the garden door, so looking forward to seeing you there on Wednesday around 6pm.

    I don't feel tenants have that many rights. Not in this country. it seems very unusual here to rent. You are regarded as
    a second class citizen

    My experiences are less funny, unfortunately...
    Yes, that sounds interesting.

      You might not be alone, I assume many have had some less funny experiences....
