    Rental crisis sees online advertisements offer free rooms in exchange for sex

    SLEAZY men are taking advantage of Sydney's rental crisis by placing online advertisements offering women free rooms in exchange for sex.

    The zero-rent ads, targeting desperate women looking for somewhere to live, are becoming increasingly common on popular "share house'' rental websites.

    Although there have been numerous complaints about the ads, which some website users have dubbed "offensive'', they do not breach policy guidelines for sites such as flatmates.com.au

    A statement on flatmates.com.au says that if the site were to impose a ban, the ads would merely go underground, making the process unsafe for women.

    One advertisement offering free rent for a female to "share a room'' was placed by a 32-year-old Auburn man calling himself Atiq.

    Atiq told The Sunday Telegraph he was looking for a relationship with a woman in a "clean'' one-bedroom unit.

    "Yes, I am alone and the rent would be free. I am looking for a girl to share my room and, yes, in the same bed,'' he said.

    Atiq said he had migrated from Pakistan eight months ago and that a friend had placed the ad for him.

    "I'm not that kind of person,'' he said. "But, yes, it would possibly involve sex.''

    Atiq said a number of women had responded to the ad but he had not yet found anyone suitable.
    A similar ad on flatmates.com.au read: "$0 to share flat, wanted flatmate/girlfriend to share unit in Griffith, ACT.

    "Free accommodation in exchange for relationship.''

    Another ad, for a Melbourne townhouse, offered "free rent for someone special: instead of rent, I am looking for someone to help me with certain needs/requirements on a regular basis''.

    After complaints, flatmates.com.au issued a statement on why it continued to run such ads.

    "Sometimes, it's pretty clear it's for sex,'' the statement said.

    "Yes - there is a rental crisis. We have had a few complaints about these ads.

    "Our policy is to let them stay, on the basis it's better for these ads to be upfront with what they are offering than disguise the offer.''

    Gumtrees.com.au did not respond to The Sunday Telegraph's inquiries.

    Flatmates.com.au is Australia's biggest free "share house'' website. Most of its users are aged between 18 and 29.

    So my spare bedroom is going to be free in a month... any takers?


    Really, though, I'd rather just take the rent money... it's usually cheaper than having a girl around. As for the guys that do this: nice play but I think you can do better. And what's stopping these girls from just robbing you blind the first chance they get?

    Yes there is a rental crisis in Sydney but this is beyond retarded.

    I can't imagine the danger single women are putting themselves in if they are stupid enough to respond to these ads. This is pretty disgusting, I mean would any of you guys do this just to get sex? Points at being a real low life/sleaze bucket.

    Plus what sort of rights does the renter have if they don't want to put out? There is no 'contract' and allowing this advertising is hopefully going to get that website shut down.

    my girlfriend and i went looking for a new place on the weekend in sydney, found exactly what we wanted, and just put the deposit in today. there was one other indian couple at the inspection on saturday. the real estate agent was an older white australian so i assumed she wouldn't like foreigners very much. after talking to her today i found out this was in fact the case. and we're in like flynn.

    i'm not sure if it's as hard to find a place as everyone is making it out to be. unless you want 3 bedrooms overlooking the harbour bridge.

    if you're wondering, the place is in concord west, which isn't really that far out of the city.

    I was under the impression that this is somewhat common in manhatten, but the girl gets a stipend as well to act as a maid; and not a small stipend.

    the danger of that notwithstanding I cant see anything wrong with it. It just contractualizes what wealthy men do anyway. but for just rent that just cheap.

    You don't see a danger in it?!!!!!

    What if the agreement/contract stated 'payment' once a fortnight. What if the girl says 'no' and the guy decides that he's going to get his due anyway? I could see this getting out of hand quite easily.
