A rental advert has caused a stir among Australians after the landlord revealed that tenants will be forced to vacate their home at the weekend.
The single room listed for rent in Throsby, north of Canberra, will cost the tenant $425 a week despite the room being off-limits two days a week.
The advert says the property is “not for couples or families” but is aimed at those traveling to Canberra for work.
The listing was criticized online for being advertised for the same amount as other one-bedroom listings despite the strange condition.

The listing shows a single single bed installed in the corner of the “fully furnished” bedroom.
It also advertises a “well-equipped” kitchen even though another image shows it is missing a refrigerator.
“This accommodation is ideal for an interstate professional or someone like a contractor, a graduate professional who is not here on the weekends,” the ad reads.
The $435 price also covers all amenities and includes access to a parking lot and laundry.
Social media users found it “laughable” to send a paying tenant away on weekends.
“This has to be a trick,” one wrote on Facebook.

“It’s ridiculous that you expect $425 for this box and the tenant can’t even be there on the weekends,” a second wrote.
“People like you give owners a bad name, yes I understand the market and prices… You’re a joke,” added a fellow owner.
Others urged tenants to continue looking for a room to rent saying there were many much better options available.
