Life Hack Golden Thread - Your worst nightmare landlord experienceWatch
illegals (my romany neighbours were disgusting in all ways)
just a bad area overall as well but not their fault yet their property added to the general slum of the neighbourhood, meanwhile they're living somewhere exotic in the south think it's new quay
The "all bills inc" charlatans who tried to make me pay nonstop extras including their bills, even council tax for a house I'd never even visited.
The food police who banned dairy, meat or alcohol from being consumed in the property.
The creepy ones who never called to organised a visit but always seemed to be lurking around the property after dark, standing in odd places.
One grubby little pervert who kept inviting himself over at dinner time, went on about how his wife didn't understand him and hinted he'd let all three of us girls off rent in exchange for "a friendly arrangement".
The greedy one that charged extra for every little thing, fitted in half a dozen utility pre-pay meters- then tried billing me an extra £80 for a monoxide detector and £150 to change a light bulb.
The slumlords renting out illegal shoeboxes with no windows, leaking lofts and converted garages with no power.
The loft slumlord was the very worst; dark, dingy and with rainwater leaking down on me whenever it rained. The leaking roof always soaked my bedding, ruined a laptop and destroyed most of my handwritten notes.
Just coped until the end of tenancy term or for as long as I could, then moved out.
Usually had to fight hard for months to get my deposits back.
