Trendy studio flat in central London is £1,350 per month – but can YOU spot what’s missing?

A TRENDY Central London flat is on the rental market for a steep price of £1,350 per month – but it's missing a crucial feature.

The tiny, fully-furnished studio flat in the affluent Westminster borough is listed as "just a minute walk from Bayswater Underground" by letting agents.

But keen apartment hunters might be shocked to learn there is something crucial missing from the renovated flat.

While the studio offers a spacious living room and separate kitchen – there's no permanent bed to be found.

Tucked into the cupboards is a pull-out double murphy bed, that would need to be tucked away each time you want to leave the apartment.

The description of the studio apartment on Rightmove reads: "This property consists of a high specification finish with a fold-up bed that goes into a closed away cupboard for a discreet and tidy look."

The optimistic agents even call the studio in Ralph Court, Queensway "luxurious".

The recently renovated flat has marbled counters and views of the city.

It even comes fitted with its own washing machine and a concierge service in place of a permanent bed.

Estate agents A1 Capital said in their description: "A1 Capital lettings are proud to present this luxury studio flat located on the 7th floor with a concierge at the front desk.

"This property is located in a prime location just a minute walk to Bayswater Underground station. All forms of public transport is available just outside with many bus stops, train lines and more.

"All necessary local amenities and more are also walking distance."

The pricey apartment is an average price for a studio apartment, but the fold-out bed and four-figure sum is likely to put off the most desperate of renters.


Your property must be fit to live in and be safe, healthy and free from things that could cause serious harm.

If your house falls below these standards, you could take your landlord to court.

There are also rules in place to stop overcrowding in small houses.

To find out if your house is overcrowded, count the number of people living there (a child aged 10 or over counts as a person), and count the number of bedrooms and living rooms.

A maximum of two people to one room is allowed, as well as a maximum of three people to two rooms, and five people to three rooms.

You can check to see whether your home is overcrowded using Shelter's guidebook on it's website.

Citizens Advice says you should complain to your landlord if your home doesn't meet these standards, or you're unhappy with your living conditions.

You should put your complaints down in writing, either in a letter or email, so you have evidence of your conversation.

If your landlord doesn't fix the problem, you should tell your local council – again, make sure you email or send a letter.

You can find which one is yours using the's council finder tool.

Send a copy of any evidence following your call or with your letter, for example photos showing the problem.
