Looking for a flat in Croydon , London .

Dear all ,

Any help matters . I have a friend , his partner and a girl starting jobs in Croydon , London on monday next week . They've signed up a contract with a real estate agency for a 2 bedroom flat but the landlord pulled out in the last day despite bank statements , previous landlord reference , job references , and new contracts provided . They will be accomodated at my place for this weekend ( sunny Curry Rivel ) but they are in dire need for a flat next week . They are going to look up the advs in local supermarkets and newspapers next monday but can you advice of any other ways to find a flat ASAP ? 1100 a month is their margin if that helps with my plea .
Many thanks, egret .

PS. Sorry if this sound desperate but it really is and they are my FRIENDS .
Any advice matters.....thank you !

Many thanks Wildman , Tonto ! We've been yesterday to a new agency and hopefully they will get a flat early next week . So commuting for next 2-3 days (from Somerset) is in the cards but at least they will get a roof over their heads soon .
Many thanks again ,
zie egret.

My room is currently taken, but this is where I advertise, and it seems very good.

I'm going to moving down that way soon. Might be a little late now but looking slightly North of Croydon in Morden/Merton you can get some decent places for a similar price.
