    Im a first year renting privately so this is all new to me.
    One of housemates has been ill in hospital last week for a few days and has been readmitted today.

    When i was helping them get there things i saw the room was a mess. Stuff everywhere and it smells bad. Also they seem to have no bedding. Just a quilt and pillow without covers.

    Im really worried about them, is it something I should talk to the landlord about or should I just leave it.

    When your housemate comes back I would talk to them- ask if they are ok. If they are dismissive and say yeah I'm fine when they clearly aren't then I would go to your uni welfare department- assuming they are at your uni. Landlords aren't there to deal with pastoral concerns.

    Thanks, that is really helpful. I will talk to them when they get back.

    no problem. thinking about it now asking how they are would be better rather than a leading question like are they are ok.
