Kelly & Jay knew each other from uni, but when they moved to London they needed more flatmates to share with to be able to rent the lovely house they'd found. With a little help from SpareRoom, they found Abi and Sam, and realised they clicked straight away. Here's their story - find out about what they share, and how much fun they have living together in North London.
Luisa is Spanish and didn't know anyone in London. Stephen's from Liverpool and works in London. He rents a two bed house in Kew from a friend, but needed to find someone to share with to make it affordable. Enter SpareRoom, who helped Stephen find Luisa and now they've been happily sharing as flatmates for 3 years. Watch the video to discover their flatshare story, and how flatsharing works so well for them.
When Colin got divorced, he was left rattling around in the 5 bedroom family home he'd had built. He didn't want to leave it, but it felt too empty to live in alone. So he advertised on SpareRoom for a couple of lodgers - that's how he found Jess and Kate. Very different characters, but they all get on famously. Discover their flatshare story - watch the video!

Fernando and Alejandro are a couple (one's an artist, the other an actor) and fairly new to London. Paul was also looking for somewhere affordable to live. They met at SpeedFlatmating, an event organised by SpareRoom.co.uk to help people find flatmates they click with. Having immediately worked out they get along together, they spent a day or so looking for a flat to share, and cohabit happily in East London. In this Flatshare Stories video they explain how it works so well for them.
