Toilet for Rent in London for Over $4200 A Month

By Troy Frisby, Buzz60

When it comes to sky-high rent prices, London is truly giving San Francisco a run for its money.

The U.K. sees the San Fran man who lived in a box for $400 a month and raises it one toilet for $4,200 a month.

Seriously. A builder named James Atherton has listed his spare toilet for rent.

Atherton is banking on proposed plans to close the public bathrooms nearby, so he's dubbed it a "toilet space" to entice bus drivers in the area.

Although, if he were really thinking in real estate terms, he'd bill it as a spacious half-half-bath, since it's a toilet with no sink.

Atherton's idea might not be entirely far-fetched. A UBS Prices and Earnings study looked at cities all over the globe to find the most expensive renting rates.

London came in third, with an average price of $2,840 for a two-bedroom space.

The owner says the $4,200-a-month toilet hasn't been used in years but is in good condition.

Still, you'd think Atherton could at least install a new one, considering the toilet itself costs a fraction of price.

Then again, small spaces are all the rage right now, so perhaps this scheme will kickstart a new reality show: "Tiny Toilet Nation."
