FOREWORD: Here’s another ad for a roommate. Any interested parties should drop an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hey guys, I’m looking to share my flat. It’s a still being furnished, a 3 bedroom/2 bathroom apartment (PS: I don’t have a couch though) in Yaba, recently renovated and refurbished (I moved in 6 monhs ago). The apartment is near the University of Lagos, Coldstone/Dominoes and Sabo. The rooms are really bright, clean.
The apartment’s living room is both tiled and rugged. It has a functioning borehole with two tanks, but we seem to always run out of water at 10am every morning (no idea why). Power used to be steady, but since the mess with Niger Delta Avengers started, it has dropped drastically. But the gen comes on everyday at 8pm, goes off at 11pm, and then 6 am to 7am. You’d only need to move in with a mattress and a fan. Air conditioning is available even though I can’t seem to get the idiot I paid 5 months ago to come finish the installation. Parking is available underneath the building, but it has become first come, first service. The building has an average of 2 cars per tenant for 9 parking spots.
Rent is flexible. You could either do monthly at 60k/month or yearly at 450k/year (No agreement/commission, no furnishing or buying household items), and this excludes service charges (estate security, building security, electricity (grid/fuel), cleaning). Internet is optional.
I know living with roommates can be awful. Heck, living with anyone is. We are different people. We come from different backgrounds, have different experiences and we are set in our own ways. I am introverted, I keep a FEW FRIENDS, and I like my space and my alone time alone, although I’d probably enjoy them being invaded every now and then. However, I’d expect my roommate to respect them, especially if he has a ton of friends that’d make it awkward for me to run into all the time everywhere.
