Just got a letter from an 'agent' on behalf of one of the other residents in my block of flats complaining about me keeping my bike inside my flat. Apparently, in bringing the bike into reception, up the staircase and into my flat (during which time I shoulder the bike, so the tyres don't even touch the carpet), I am causing "damage" to the property.
The agent says that there is cycle storage in the basement of the block, which "must be used", and that if they receive additional complaints then they will charge me for any costs incurred!
Firstly, my bike is expensive and there's no way I'm leaving it in a damp, often flooded basement storage area to which other residents have open access. Secondly, there are other people in the block that keep their bikes in the hallway at all times (not inside their flat, like me), so how on earth would they go about proving that I have caused this supposed damage?
I have strong suspicions about who has made the complaint - a lovely retiree who recently told one of the block's other bike-riding residents that if he wanted to "make a mess" by keeping his bike in the hall, he should "go live in a council house".
I don't know why I've let this bother me so much, but I'm absolutely fuming...
