I'm only been here for 8 months and so far I've had two "warning" letters, one for not mowing the lawns, which arrived after the inspector came after 3 weeks of continuous rain (I'm not one for electrocution or damaging the grass), and now I get one for "general cleanliness" after the inspector arrived after I'd done an 80 hour week, driven 1000 miles on the weekend and come back at 1am, made some food and left the dishes out dirty before going to bed and then straight back out to work in the morning. AND they tell me I should "cure" the condensation problem (single glazing, middle of winter?!) by leaving the non-locking windows open while I'm at work to air the property.
REALLY starting to get cheesed off with them, bunch of **** morons without a cell between their ears. Whats more, they put a stupid little paragraph in saying "we dont want to tell you how to live but you may incurc charges if you dont keep the property as you received it". So...
Do I go on the offensive, pointing out their stupidity, the fact that they've still not replaced the fridge which swings from -1 to 9 degrees without being opened (logged it with a datalogging thermometer), the fact that one of the rooms is not properly decorated? The fact that the landlord was meant to be removing piles of rubbish in the garden and hasnt, the fact that the landlord left the bins so full they couldnt be removed and I had to empty it in 3 trips to the dump, the fact that I was meant to be getting hedges cut by the landlord and they weren't? The fact that theres a **** great hole under the loo that lets the cold air, insects and damp in, The fact that I get a different property manager each time I call, the fact taht none of the kitchen windows open so I cant even begin to air the kitchen when cooking. Do I point out the fact that I've fixed, without complaining, the fridge, the central heating that needed bleeding, the wiring for the TV antenna, the wiring for the phone extension that was done badly, cleaned the paint off the light switches where it was painted over, the doors that were catching due to being badly hung.
FFS the red mist has descended.
