And now he has told me I'm going to be evicted!

FFS - my life is a sitcom.

You ran over him?

Eh what? Did he just walk in?

And to not drip feed - basically I heard two male voices on the stairs outside the bedroom (I rent just a room), so I go out to find two 'elder' men walking down the stairs. So I bollocked them lol.

Turns out it is the landlord and his son who now want to evict me.

Jesus Christ - Kim Kardashian has nothing on the drama in my life.

Why did you bollock them? If other people live in the house wouldn't the first assumption be that they were visiting someone else?

EvaBING Mon 07-Dec-15 12:33:45

Our lease allows the landlord to access any part of the house without notice. I've just moved in, last week, so didn't know who the fuck it was.

Ahhh... Can you offer sincere apologies and plead your case for staying on the basis of being a great security guard?

Enjolrass Mon 07-Dec-15 12:37:09

Why wasn't your first question

'Who are you?'

Especially if you know he can come in when he needs to?

How big was the bollocking for them to consider evicting you.

Good tennants aren't easy to find....

High drama.

I asked them to leave. Then I was asked who I was. As I am paying a significant amount of money to rent a room here, I was not forthcoming. Once it was established (by our other flatmate) who everyone was, old man told me that I would be evicted. nyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Well if you have a contract they can't evict you until your lease has run out.

Also I didn't think it matter what the contract says - a landlord can't just come in. You're legally entitled to quiet enjoyment or some such phrase. Not sure if its different for a Multi occupancy house????

Maybe they'll see the funny side later?

Enjolrass Mon 07-Dec-15 12:39:34

I just don't get why you would ask someone to leave?

What if they were visiting someone?

EvaBING Mon 07-Dec-15 12:39:59

Indeed my first question WAS 'Who are you'

But apparently they are not obliged to speak to the underlings.

Enjolrass Mon 07-Dec-15 12:40:29

Did you just ask them to leave?

Because that doesn't seem like running them out or bollocking them.

7Coffees Mon 07-Dec-15 12:40:55

Ffs it's obvious what op meant. Have you got a tendency agreement op?

Fugghetaboutit Mon 07-Dec-15 12:42:14

Why didn't the convo go:

'Who are you?'

'Im the landlord'

'Oh, nice to meet you, I'm your new tenant'


BanningTheWordNaice Mon 07-Dec-15 12:42:57

This makes no sense whatsoever.

stairbears Mon 07-Dec-15 12:45:50

Not necessarily 7coffees - obvs not everyone knows of the phrase 'ran him out'

AliceInUnderpants Mon 07-Dec-15 12:50:14

Why didn't you assume they were with one of your flat mates? "Who are you?" sounds so rude.

CheesyWeez Mon 07-Dec-15 12:51:27

Yes I'd say you were being unreasonable. - is there a lock on your bedroom door or is it a house share type arrangement?

Fairiesarereal Mon 07-Dec-15 12:51:48

But why did you 'run him out' if you didn't know who they were? Who did you think they were?
