Jesus Christ, they really have found all sorts of innovative ways to be difficult!
I really do not understand why anyone would do something like that. We banged a few picture hooks into our walls here, but we do understand the fundamental difference between renting and owning.
It is starting to sound to me like your agents have been so slack that you should claim all the damage on their insurance. Even I know that tenants in Brighton need to have a close eye kept on them - an acquaintance in Hong Kong returned and found that the tenants had ripped up his floorboards and put in a hydroponic marijuana farm.
He was apoplectic - IIRC, he couldnt even repair the damage until the police had taken all their evidence. It was years ago that I met him, but I think he said it took months before the police let him into his own house again.
Hope the flight is ok - sedatives are your friends!
fab thankyou love! You missed a cracker on the rude thread. Ta for the lovely comments too - someones been stirring, very childish. I actually could have done without that crap with the tenants being such cocks.
Have a good trip Brightongirl - hope your flat is still in one piece! I'll think of you sitting on the lovely pebbly beach in what passes for an English Summer
Can I propose something radical for our next meet? Evening plans often seem to go tits up for some of us at the last minute so what about meeting up on a Saturday afternoon for a bite to eat and some wine then those who --can still stand-- want to can find a bar and keep going and anyone who needs to duck out can before it comes to the late train/expensive taxi decision.
Shall we try and sort a date before this slips so far down the page we all forget about it! What about a Saturday in October which will give Brightongirl a chance to get back and catch her breath? I can do any Saturday after the 4th at this stage - anyone else?
