Fair Rents (Scotland) Bill or Artificial state manipulation of free market rent?10:34 AM, 6th November 2020
About 4 weeks ago 36
My lodger asked me if her Mum could stay here for 2 weeks when she comes to visit from South Africa. I said no as I rent the room out to her and nobody else….the room is not big enough for 2 people … and when she and myself go to work her Mum would be in my house all day (a total stranger to me)…so she said oh well I will have to move out as I cant afford to rent here and another place for my mum…. (she is a Mon-to Fri lodger).
She gave me 2 weeks notice which we had agreed..since then she is banging doors….. I have bought her 2 heaters for her room but both have broken … she is telling me she is cold. I have my central heating on 24/7.. today I have got home from work to find she went to work without locking my front door. I know she is trying to wind me up as I think she wants to move out sooner and for me to refund the rent she has paid. Due to financial problems I’m not in a position to refund her the rent she has paid until the end of the month and I also don’t think I should.. its her choice to go.. but I feel she is out to annoy me so I evict her…. please help!
