to be angry at landlord's wife

Our best friends rented this house we are moving into. They are moving in with their parents. We are suppose to move in this weekend on Sunday.
When we first saw the landlord we told him that our friends were moving 20th of April so that we could move in this weekend. He said yeah ok, but will talk again. So he went on a fishing trip to America and now we have this problem.
We want to move on Sunday but the wife said no we cant. We can only move in the house on the 1st.
The problem is we have furnisher to move. We have to be out of our house on Monday afternoon. Where do we go with our stuff. We just want to put all our stuff in the garage for the Monday afternoon. We don't have anywhere to go, as we are from SA. Don't have the money to pay for a van on the Monday and then again on the Tuesday.
Our friends said they will sign a letter to say we can store our stuff in the house as they are the legal tenants till the Monday. But the landlords wife wouldn't accept it!
We told the wife about the problem and she just says it is her husbands property and she cant do anything!

What, sounds totally unreasonable.
Tell her the landlord already agreed get the keys off your friend and move. simple.
"We told the wife about the problem and she just says it is her husbands property and she cant do anything!"
The wife has said it's not her business, he said yes she's saying no - she has no right to say no, she has already wiped her hands of the situation? re - read your post. It's not her decision.

Wow, she sounds awful. Are you not thinking of looking around for something else? If she's being such a cow about this, what will it be like every time you have a problem? I mean what if there is a problem in the house (heating, water etc) and you have to get in touch with them.

Yeah, told my husband if we had somewhere to go we would. And not move in there. The problem is that we don't have the cash for a deposit for now. This landlord doesn't require a deposit.
When the landlord gets back we are going to tell him we are dealing with him, his wife must never be around when we want to see him. Luckily he just lives a block from the house and he is realy a nice guy. So won't have problems with him. Will never deal with his wife, she made it clear that she doesn't have anything to do with the house.

you may have problems with him if you critisise his wife though. regardless how nice a bloke he is, he is not going to take kindly to being told that his wife is so unpleasant that she must not be present when you wish to speak to him!
think carefully about your wording. he is not going to be impressed by a stranger telling him his wife is a cow.

just reread your bit about "will never deal with the wife" and realised you weren't saying you were going to tell him you won't deal with his wife, but that you won't need to deal with his wife cos it's not her house!!
i thought you were going to tell him you weren't prepared to see his wife!!!!!
must stop skimming posts!!!
