A North London woman has founded a business which connects older people looking for housemates.
Crouch End resident Margaret Byrne, 57, launched Cosy Quarters to help match over-40s by location, budget and lifestyle.
Margaret personally struggled with house-hunting, and said existing housemate websites are aimed at “millennials and digital nomads”.
She added: “Having a happy household means you have to be honest, and sure about what you want.
“Cosy Quarters connects people who share the same values, who can inspire and support one another.
