Trouble with my landlord
I absolutely LOVE where I am living. Its half an hours walk away from uni, has an enormous garden, the people I'm living with are great, my room is quite big and comfortable, but…...
Oh yes there's always a but.
At the moment we're having problems with our landlord. He has blocked our driveway and that of our fellow neighbours, who are also students. So now we can't park in the drive, I have had to park down some quiet road somewhere and when I often come home very late by myself walking back along quite dark roads isn't very nice.
So why has our landlord done this. Well it all comes down to money, yes he wants more money from the university for us to park in the driveway. Well if this isn't enough, before the actual parking barrier was errected it was laying on the ground in the entrance of our drive and we were instructed not to touch it in any way lest we should damage it and have to pay for it. So yesterday one of my housemates girfriends damaged her car on the driveway, so now there's engine oil all over the driveway and where we have been walking in it, over the entrance hall carpet.
There is no way I'm paying for that!
On Thursday while we were playing 'I have never..' I didn't drink when they said, "I have never said bad things about my landlord", but now I can definately say, that yes I have said bad things about him. He has been so incredibly selfish.
But still, I wouldn't want to move from here. I love this house, I love the people I'm living with and I'm still so happy to be here with them all!
