Came home from work once to find strangers in my back garden along with a fallen tree and bricks..looked like a episode of fucking Groundforce or something apparently my neighbour didn't think I'd mind she was having work done and needed the extra space CF!
Gave my friend two extra tickets to a free event so her friends could come. She sold them (event was in demand), used the money to go for a meal, complained about the meal and got it free, and she told me all about it as an amusing story!
My neighbours used to call the Police to my address whenever they had any trouble (27 call outs in a short amount of time), so that it wouldn't be picked up by SS and that he lived there, but claimed separately. One of the family would stand in the doorway and direct them in, so at first i didn't realise. I was a CP SW (and a LP with three children,one disabled) and this was picked up by my Work.
He would also get car insurance quotes from mine, so they didn''t get found out and when i came back unexpectedly, he was always parked on my path.
Btw, they wasn't impoverished, they just thought that if it wasn't nailed down,it was there's.
I could fill a thread, but the older two children's Father lived in a house share and the whole family would stay in a tent in the garden when the children went to stay and eat/bathe/use the internet/electricity until the LL got a Court order.
My old landlord was a massive CF! Before he bought my flat, it was owned by a family friend who gave us permission to redecorate. My landlord bought the flat with New York skyline feature wall, grey painted walls and bright red kitchen walls (looking back, not my finest choice!) Anyway, told them I was moving out - even found them a new tenant and was able to be out within the week - cleaned everything within an inch of it life and went on my way. Two weeks later got emailed an invoice for 'putting the flat back to original standards' so painting the walls magnolia, striping the wallpaper. CF he bought it looking like that and we even spoke about it for when I would eventually leave (1 bed second story flat with a new baby) he said not a problem I'll get full deposit back obviously unless there were major issues - which there weren't. I never got my deposit back and never paid the rest - just sent him an invoice for the tiles I had to get replaced in the kitchen that wasn't my fault but was a safety issue with my baby! They never emailed again after that.
