im in temp accomadation.its a shit hole. i have made several attemps to contact landlord about several issues he does nothing. anyway this latest thing is not down to him as such the stairs are really steep so i need to put a gate on. i have a standard gate its to wide and i have tried slim gate to small also tried slim gate with extension still wont fit. so now all i can think to do is add 2 bits of wood each side of the wall. so then the gate would fit. would this be a bad thing to do.

Like a baton attached to the wall that you attach gate to?

Sounds sensible.

I think as long as you remove the wood / fill the holes / repaint etc when you move out, you'll be fine smile
Generally with rented accommodation you just need to make sure that you leave the premises in the same state it was in.

unicorn so I should replace the mice I got rid of and put the chair back that was full of mice droppings and remove all the wire wool and expanding foam I put in the gaps. grin wink
