We recommend www.spareroom.co.uk for all young professionals, students and Millennials looking for a flat share or house share. Cohabitas is only for over 40s (over 35's accepted too) so rooms advertised and housemates looking for buddy-ups on this site are not suitable under this age.

Cohabitas specialises in house shares, flatshares and rooms to rent for over 40s. So if you are a live-in landlord, tenant or a lodger in your 40s, 50s or 60s or older, this is the place to find new housemates.
