I joined Property118 today because I need to get my gripe ‘out there’.
I have been described as the ‘perfect tenant’ by previous landlords/agents. I am 61, live on my own, like to potter in the garden but basically keep myself to myself.
I am very good at diy so never bother the landlord/agent with things, just get on and do it myself.
I moved into this two-bed semi property eight months ago, insulated the loft, masticed around doors, renewed the front and back door seals, insulated behind boiler, fixed the leaky cistern – and overflow……really improved the place – even completely renovated the clapped out greenhouse. Anyway, when my six months was up my agent came round to ask me to sign up for another 12 months, I said that I would just like it to rollover. It was on this occasion I told her that the aerial had fallen off the chimney stack and was lying on the roof. Apparently this was ‘not the landlords responsibility so I left it at that, slightly disappointed they were of no help. Initially the landlord boasted a good digital signal in the house.
One week later the agent phoned and said the landlord insisted on me signing the new 12 month agreement. I refused.
A week later they phoned me again saying the landlord wanted security and knowledge I would not leave during the winter months.
Again a week went past and yet another call, the landlord had had a heart attack and wanted me to sign.
Today (June 3) they have phoned again.
Now, FOUR TIMES they have phoned me and I am feeling hassled. I dare not answer the phone now in case it’s them again.
I now feel so unsettled I am looking for somewhere else in the same area.
Cannot these landlords/agents see how they are acting.
Sometimes I feel they end up with the tenants they deserve!!!
