Errr…I found this clip on the Property Hawk website. It’s footage of what a landlord was welcomed to after a tenant had checked out. I can’t seem to find more details about the case, but have a look at the visuals…
I’m assuming the previous tenant has yet to grasp the concept of being “human”. I can’t comprehend why anyone would want to let a property get into that kind of condition, unless the landlord allowed a silverback gorilla to pass the screening process. There must have been some kind of motive there. I’m guessing the motive was “insanity”
Needless to say, it’s going to cost an arm, 2 legs and 4 penises to get that place back to any reasonable state. My only question is, how/why did the Landlord not keep on top of this? Ok, don’t get me wrong, I feel sorry for the landlord and I hope he gets everything sorted, however…
Landlords/letting agents are entitled to, and should perform routine quarterly inspections. What happened here? Rome wasn’t built in a day, and it’s pretty apparent the property in question wasn’t reduced to puddles of urine and rubble on moving out day. That property is clearly the result of months and months of ruthless torture.
On a side note, I’m quite concerned that the landlord touched the boots that were resting on the cooker. He’ll probably need a tetanus shot now. I, personally, wouldn’t have entered the building without a gas mask and rubber gloves.
To think, I was crying like a little bitch a few weeks ago because my tenant broke the front door.
What’s the important message here?
Inspect your property.
If you’re a landlord, out of curiosity, what’s the most damage a tenant has inflicted on your property?
