You could buy London flat with a garden and parking for £165k – but there’s a serious catch


A LONDON flat with its own garden and parking space has caused a stir for a strange reason. The one-bedroom property hit the market recently for just £165,000, but prospective tenants should be prepared for a serious catch.

The flat in South Norwood is described as a “one-bedroom investment property” that is located within a three-storey building.

Situated close to Norwood Junction and Selhurst railway stations it has excellent access to public transport.

And according to relators, the flat is more than £100,000 cheaper than the average house price for the area, making it a steal.

However, one major catch is that you are only able to view the flat externally.

Unconfirmed local reports claimed two people on a moped exchanged fire with the occupants of a car which crashed soon after on the same road.

The Metropolitan Police said two men were found injured on Railton Road but could not be saved by medics and died at the scene.

Paulo Silva, 42, a Deliveroo driver, drove to the scene on his moped and said he knew Guilherme from work.

He described the 21-year-old Brazilian as a “good boy” and “young”, adding that it was his last delivery of the day.

Guilherme is not believed to have been directly involved in the horror and was unfortunately caught up in the “gang” attack.

Potential buyers can view the property from the inside via images and videos provided by estate agents.

But crucially they are not allowed to step foot inside before getting the keys, report MyLondon.

Clive and Emson Land and Property Auctioneers wrote on the online advert: “Applicants may view the lot externally only.”

But buyers can expect to be granted a property that boasts a communal garden and off-street parking for residents.

It is located on the first floor and comes with a private entrance to the reception hallway, living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom.

It is also available to let at just £895 per month and could be a sound investment for those looking to move to the capital city soon.

The property is set to go to auction on Wednesday, November 2.
