Hi i have a communial garden which i share with 4 others and 1 of the residents who has owed me money for a year and i don't get on with has decided to park her broken bike in the garden which i take great care of.I have moved it to outside her flat on the 1st floor where she is living but she has brought it back downstairs to the communial garden.What shall i do?

The communication with her has just about broken down

Hang some baskets off it and fill them with flowers for the summer.

Ok well as I'm sure you know, the fact you don't get on with her and she owes you money is neither here nor there.

Is there any kind of clause in your contracts that says she's not allowed to park a bike in the garden...broken or otherwise?

Plant some climbers by it and make it a feature?

grin oldlady

I guess if it's a communal garden there's not much you can do about it, other than speak to the landlord/factor is there is one.

Take it to the street and leave it there.

Thunderstruck Wed 06-Feb-13 23:23:20

nice one bindy.I took it back up to her floor but only to have her bring it down again WAC

Thunderstruck Wed 06-Feb-13 23:23:52

I'm going to chuck it in the river tbh

You can't pollute the rivef! Ask a local scrappy if it's worth anything (metal sold by weight, not as a bike), you might get a fiver.

What is this WAC, OP?

ethelb Wed 06-Feb-13 23:26:22

She has every right to leave a bike there unless it says otherwise in the building management agreement. If I needed to cycle to work and rented a flat with communal gardens i would be furious if I couldnt keep my bike there.

Why does the Op get the monopoly on it? Can you discuss some attractive bike storage options with her?

apostropheuse Wed 06-Feb-13 23:26:34

ahhhh I see it all now.

apostropheuse Wed 06-Feb-13 23:28:45

Pandemonia apparently WAC is What a Cunt... the OP said it in another thread I just read (to worraliberty)

Thunderstruck Wed 06-Feb-13 23:29:06

In the river is the solution

fieldfare Wed 06-Feb-13 23:31:39

It really isn't. Poor fishes and other wildlife.
Call the people that own the building and ask them to deal with it.

Piecesofmyheart Wed 06-Feb-13 23:31:57

In the river it must go !

Pandemoniaa Wed 06-Feb-13 23:31:58

Thanks apostropheuse. Strange sort of accusation to be chucking at Worra.

Incidentally, OP, you can't throw other people's possessions into the river simply because you don't like the look of them.

If it were my bike and you did anything to it Id report you to the police.

WhereYouLeftIt Wed 06-Feb-13 23:33:07

You say the bike is broken, but that need not mean it is scrap. She may have plans to repair it.

apostropheuse Wed 06-Feb-13 23:35:15

I wonder if it's a communal river.

Thunderstruck Wed 06-Feb-13 23:35:43

No probs it's going in the river

AmberLeaf Wed 06-Feb-13 23:37:37

You sound like you are in danger of being served an anti harassment order TBH.
