Nick H, London

"I signed up with Cohabitas in January and found it very straightforward to use. It was recommended to me, and I would definitely recommend it to others in similar circumstances to mine.

I particularly appreciated the inclusive aspect, as the mention of maximum age on other sites can be very discouraging."

Priscilla M, Somerset

“I’m very happy that Cohabitas exists. It gives me hope that I will be able to find a flatshare in spite of my age, which has made it more difficult to find a place to live.”

Marette H, London

"I have found a place through Cohabitas, so how do I pause my Ad? They are really nice people so am looking forward to it."

"Cohabitas enabled us to find great tenants, that fit our profile. Instead of waiting for tenants to find us, we used the search filters to locate suitable profiles and proactively contacted them. This approach is very effective if you are prepared to invest some time in your search."

Julie E, London

"Please pause my listing. Have had a very good response to my advert within the first couple of weeks, such a good website. Thanks!"

Kerrie S, Surrey

"I was delighted to find the Cohabitas website... it met my needs perfectly and I found a suitable housemate very quickly. I will definitely come back to Cohabitas when I have a vacant room in the future."
