Landlords who look after tenants better than themselves
One landlord reported putting up with a broken bathroom light for 18 months because he didn’t want to pay an electrician to replace it. If he needs to shave when it’s dark outside, he brings in a desk lamp.
“Our instant HWS (hot water service) would fail in really miserable weather. The only way to get it going was for hubby to use a hairdryer and dry the area around the pilot light, standing under a brolly,” one reported. And the owner of a property on tank water, supplied via a long, exposed black hose, reported that in summer, the water out of her cold tap was hotter than the hot tap – making it impossible to shower or wash woollens in the middle of the day.
