    Whether or not we Landlords are human(e), do we really care about our tenants? Whatever, fire away.

    Yes your rent money does pay for our nice cars.

    What would you say are your top tips for first-time renters (usually in their 2nd/3rd year of Uni)?

    I know that taking pictures of the place beforehand, paying only a deposit and not an extra 'holding' fee and making sure my basic living conditions are met are some of the things to keep in mind, but any others?

    How very vulgar. It might buy 'nice cars' but there are some things it can never buy.

    Make sure you find out about the other tenants, I guess. I've had people on the verge of calling the police after domestic disputes started over unwashed dishes.

    Also, understand what type of contract you are signing. Is it a Lodger agreement / AST / Joint Tenancy, etc. Read everything carefully. The type of contract determines your rights and obligations.
    I've had people thinking they can walk out of a contract with a month's notice on an AST prior to the 6 month term.

    Check if there's a break clause in the contract. Circumstances change. If you can no longer afford the apartment or room, you should know when is the soonest you can get out.

    Usually on my left side facing the wall, weeping.

    I haven't actually had anyone tell me that! I'm a thin Chinese guy with long hair. Probably not your typical pub landlord.

    I don't even - what that means?

    After several months of posting the same question in various AMAs, often being ignored, I have found someone who knows what they're talking about. :five:

    I shall depart, in search of a new question to ask in future AMAs. :moon:

    That's a shame. Do hang around. Unrelated nerdy questions are good too.

    I think 'what did you have for breakfast' is a popular choice. It's surprisingly unanswered in most AMAs

    - Around 80,000 per year Not counting investment income from trading and capital gains. (Which vary quite a lot. But capital gains are around 130,000 this year.)

    Did you ever play M&M: Clash of Heroes? That game was the business back in the day. Apparently it's still got a fairly decent following on PC, but the Xbox servers are rather desolate these days :sad:

    I haven't. Didn't realize it had any ports outside of the Nintendo DS. I'll look into the PC version!

    I've only played on the Xbox version, so don't take my word as gospel

    My mate told me that the PC version is still fairly alive, blame him if it's not :lol:
