Okay so last week i accidentally broke the lock off a flatmates door and i had to go and report it and get it fixed. The people did not seem happy and i don't know how much i will get fined. Now I have accidentally broken a fire door with a glass middle. The glass is all cracked. I don't know what to do and i'm sure the cleaner will find out and report it when she comes on Wednesday or the binmen when they come on Monday.

They won't kick you out- accidents happen. Depending how it occured may affect wether or not you get charged for it

Student halls are used to students breaking things by accident, just be honest and ask if they d want paying up front or if they'd consider taking it off your deposit for you. If you're honest and pay for the damage its unlikely they'd kick you out over an accident, don't worry

it was an accident when the lock broke. I shoulder barged the door not very hard as a joke in front of my friends and the door smashed open. As you can tell that's the worst excuse in history but i really question whether i have any brain cells sometimes.

You will most likely have to pay for that then as it wasn't an accident as such because you were intentionally attempting to break the door- with it actually breaking not being intentional

Yeh i was fined for that one. The other one with the glass which happened yesterday I did by accident but it was stupid. I was going round the corridor on my desk chair and crashed.

sooo. yes then, you put someones door in? You're correct, that is a TERRIBLE excuse I can somewhat relate, I once drunkenly told my friend 'shut up or ill kick a hole in this wall' then went to lightly tap it, you can guess how that ended....

Depends how much the landlord knows and how your flatmates genuinely feel about it, if they're charitable it's counted as 'student damage' and you'd be asked to chip in (could be expensive, bodging a lock back together is cheap..properly replacing the frame and such costs) It obv helps if you admit it, rather than them finding it themselves. If they're UNCHARITABLE then they might evict you as you're breaking into other peoples rooms and now smashing windows - pretty clear cut eviction if you look at it that way

Ahahahaha that sounds like something I’d do with the wall. Hopefully my flat mates will be charitable. I’ll just have to hope that everything works out 🙏
