Advice re Room rentals - what is a Common Room?

Post by englishaussie » Fri, 09 Sep 2011 11:58 am

Hi there,

I'm looking for a houseshare arrangement. I'm a little confused by some of the terminology, in particularly the term "common room", which I have seen alot.

Is a "common room" a bedroom, which the tenant would have exclusive use of, but they might have to share a bathroom, or something else completely different?

Thanks

Lisa

Just to clarify, it is a bedroom with a shared bathroom and not something completely different ;) nakatago has answered it with a yes, which seemed ambiguous to me :twisted: :twisted:

No, I'm well aware of the 'or.' The short reply was intentional.

Thanks for the clarification - I was wondering whether the term was code for some kinky bed sharing activities!

This is a pretty useful page that provides explanations to all the terminology such as 'common room', '3 room HDB flat' and 'terrace house'
