My Landlord Is A Rude B*tch!

Rude Landlord

Urgh, nothing gets on my tits more than someone with an authority complex.

One of my best mate’s is a lodger, and unfortunately her live-in landlord seems to have a major case of it.

I frequently pop over to to chill-out and catch up on life, but I do so begrudgingly because when I do, I’m always unsettled by the experience I’m forced to endure with her landlord, who happens to be the most miserable, sorry-looking shit-face I ever have had the pleasure of meeting and dealing with.

I don’t know how my friend has coped for so long (10 months). I don’t think she knows either. Alas, my friend is too fragile to drum up any form of controversy, so she’ll tolerate pretty much anything just as long as it results in peace.

As a friend and a fellow landlord, it’s truly frustrating for me to witness such poor practices, but more importantly, unnecessarily inflict misery upon my pal.

Reasons why the landlord is a grade-A bitch!

  • She’s literally NEVER happy. I’ve never seen her break into a smile, not once. Not even a smirk. Her face is permanently stuck with the same gormless expression. I’m confident that if she even tried to smile her skin would crack like dry paint.

    Miserably people are so unnecessary.

  • She has no concept of manners, not even a basic grasp.

    Reluctantly, I always smile and greet her when I see her, even though I know I’m going to get served with the same old tired response, consisting of a low-pitched mutter, which vaguely sounds like the word, “hi”, although I wouldn’t dream betting my house on it.

    JUST SMILE AND SAY HI, for Heaven’s sake!

  • She’s one of those annoying clean freaks. Being clean is one thing, but being a freak about it is another thing.

    She crosses the line with her freakish antics; she throws a strop when there’s a mess in my friend’s room, when It actually has NOTHING to do with her. And when I say “mess”, I don’t mean dried faeces tucked away in the corner or last week’s congealed roast dinner stowed under the bed.

    My friend isn’t dirty, she’s normal, so occasionally has clothes lying around. The landlord seems to perceive that as “room-cancer”, and deems it appropriate to lecture (literally) my friend about it.

  • Every time my friend cooks in the kitchen, the landlord seems to make a big deal about the smell, in a really aggressive manner. It’s fucking food, the smell will go, you dumb bitch!

    I’m sure if the landlord had it her own way, my friend would only eat raw cucumbers and carrots, and an assortment of other relatively scentless foods.

  • The landlord ALWAYS goes into my friend’s room and cleans it.

    She’s even gone through her drawers and organised her papers and all sorts. While the intentions may not be sinister, the actions are extremely intrusive, and understandably makes my friend feel harassed. The landlord has no right to do that, but for some reason, in her stupid head, she feels she does.

  • The last time my friend took a shower after 10pm, the landlord complained and insisted that showers were for morning times only.

    Ever since, my friend has felt uncomfortable taking late night showers, even though she works late shifts a lot of the time. The bathroom is right next to the landlord’s bedroom, so she can’t even have a sneaky one.

    It’s still unclear why this is a problem because the landlord was awake and watching TV when the attempt was made. Either way, even if the repulsive bitch was counting sheep, she still shouldn’t complain when the tenant wants to take a shower in order to maintain basic human hygiene.

  • The landlord gets angered by late night visitors or stayovers. My friend has to ask permission, and the response is usually “no”, and obviously my pussy friend usually obeys like an obedient police dog.

    It’s actually kinda’ pathetic. My friend needs to man up.

After lecturing my friend relentlessly, week after week, I finally broke her down, and she’s agreed to give notice and move out. HAARRAY!

But before doing so, I took a look at the lodger agreement to understand the terms of the tenancy, only to discover that it wasn’t even a “lodger agreement.” The miserable dumb sack-of-shit had used an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement suitable for a single-let, which was clearly wrong. I wasn’t surprised, however.

Other than the fact an incorrect contract was being used, the tenancy agreement itself was laughable. Total junk.

  • The tenancy agreement was clearly out of date, and looked like it had been typed up by the landlord on a typewriter straight after a boozy night out in town
  • The contract wasn’t for a live-in landlord, it was specifically for a landlord that lived separately

I refuse to let the landlord get away with anything!!

I have a feeling in my gut that the landlord isn’t going to make it easy for my friend to depart; she may attempt to keep the deposit over something mind-numbingly stupid (because that’s the kind of person she is). But I refuse to let that happen. My friend hasn’t caused any damage to her room or the communal areas, and she’s been a perfectly good lodger.

I’m also going to ensure my friend gives the landlord the minimum notice required, just to be inconvenient as possible. The landlord has been totally inconvenient throughout the tenure, so she needs a dose of her own cheese-and-chive anal fluid thrown down her gullet.

To top it off, I’m pretty certain a gas safety check hasn’t been performed. And if it has, my friend hasn’t been provided with a copy of the certificate, which she is legally obligated to.

If the landlord at any point makes the process of moving out difficult for my friend, I’ll be throwing all of the above in her face plus more, along with a big FUCK YOU.

Right, rant over. I love you all xxx

Your friend needs a slap for tolerating this landlord, at least you had the sense to talk her around.

So what you are saying is that the contract should be re written to allow the landlord to rummage through the drawers!

I have been looking for this sort of tenancy for years. I certainly wont be filling my house with student nursese before I have this agreement in place.

Hey, was this in Hatfield? Because I think my girlfriend is living with the same woman or phycho, except she didn't write a contract even though she said she would.

Now she might get kicked out at any time. The landlady locked my girlfriend out of the house so she had to stay down mine for the night. She also goes through my girlfriend's room without notifying my girlfriend and goes through her personal belongings and then she shouts at her! She gets drunk every day and then shouts at my girlfriend for the smallest things i.e. a pair of pjs on the floor and coming home after 7 because my girlfriend has long and late hours at uni!

This landphycho lady is making my girlfriend's life a missery and my girlfriend pukes up every day because of stress. Sometimes it has a bit of blood in it aswell!!

And to top it all off, her parents won't let her move out. Her parents are forcing her to stay there! Her parents do not understand how she is feeling and they don't realise that they have screwed her over and they are not doing anything to make up for it and this really really gets me very angry, but I can't shout at them and my girlfriend can't shout at her landphycho lady because me and my girlfriend are good people.

I totally understand. Right after I first moved in the bitch turned off the internet.She's a lonely chronic gambler who lost her house and her mind. I guess she was looking for donkey who was going to emphasizeb with her well I did and she wanted my soul after that. Big mistake.

You sound like a bitch yourself. So much so that not content with your own fights, you seek to take other people's on too - all hidden under the veil of 'caring for' your friend.
If I were a landlord, you'd be EXACTLY the kind of self-centred douche I'd try to avoid.

My landlords are so much worse.

My new roomate who moved in is just as bad as the two landlords are.

My landlords started out as really nice people. Then they started to show their true colors. Once my new roomate moved in recently this month. I also think that my new roomate lied to and scammed my landlords. which is why I got kicked out of my place. And have to move into a new place at the end of this month. She told my landlord that she has a job. And works during the day. Yet she is home every day of the week, I hear her talking on the phone, watching tv, I hear her phone going off, Or I hear her up in the kitch. Oh yes she really has a job. Ever since she moved in. I've also been getting blamed for smells and aromas in the house that are not all my fault. My old roomate who was living here before her. Who was totally crazy and psychotic. Left a bunch of expired food and fruit in the fridge. Which had been there for months since she left. So, now thanks to the smells from the old food. I'm getting blamed for it. There is also no windows in the rooms or in the basement. So, after a while of two people living together. The place is eventually going to start to smell and get stuffy. But of course the new fucking bitch of a roomate and the landlords who I thought were nice people. Decided to be rude about it. And blame me for the smells. So, I got sick of it and decided to move out. I'll be moving into my new place on March 28 or the 29th. I think that the new roommate was just trying to get me kicked out. I don't really like her too much anyway. I was planning on moving out once she moved in anyway. Something about her just really set me off. So, I'm honestly glad to be leaving. It just shocks me how fake some landlords can be. Or how rude and total bitches some of them can be. They start out totally nice and friendly. But then if you make one little mistake. Or a new roomate moves in that they suddenly chose to like better then you. They start to show their true colors. But then again. Most people are like that too. Totally fake and just rude little bitches.

OMG i googled this because after my second inspection today, I have found out my landlord is spying on when we lock our garden gate with an extra padlock. Saying 2 cereal bowls left on the side during a boiler check was FILTHY. and much much more.

I consider myself cleaner than the average being... here comes my notice due to bitchy landlord.

If an Assured Shorthold Tenancy ends at the fixed term (in my case 12-Sept-2015-20-Aug-2016)and the landlady decided to increase the rent , would the terms of the old tenancy still apply? I was under the impression it lapses into a periodic tenancy but I'm unsure because of the rent increase.
If I want to give notice and leave can I do so and be entitled to receive my deposit back?
Thanks or incoming responses, really stuck here because my landlady kicked up a fuss about me being late with a termly payment effective Sept 17th '16. I'd asked her if I could effect the payment monthly under the impression my old AST had lapsed automatically into a periodic one but she texted me saying she didn't know what I was talking about and that all tenants pay a term in advance. Pretty rude about it considering I've been a good tenant for the past year. I get it, you need the rent and its not a free room but can't it be phrased more politely? Its not like I'm gonna vanish into thin air with all my belongings ( I wish! It'd save me moving).

I am a Landlord, and yes, I am female. I have been doing it now for about 20 years, and would like to think that I am reasonably competent. That doesn't mean that I don't make mistakes, but in the mean, I am quite competent.

Sounds to me that you are either renting a room, or a veryclosetoher apartment. It also sounds like both parties have to work on their communications.


Never enter a room without the permission of the tenant, unless it is an emergency.
Never touch articles owned by someone else unless those things are illegal.


The landlord can live where ever she pleases.
Her demeanor is none of your concern, and comparing yourself to her while publicly calling her a bitch reflects badly on you.
If you don't find a way to work things out, you will have to move. That's time and expense for you.

My evil twin suggests that it sounds like after 8 years of being a Landlord she is ready to move on. In other words, she wants her place back. She's probably aware of a gazillion legal reasons why she cannot do this, and so it looks/sounds/acts like a bad time.

You may want to initiate a civil conversation with her by meeting her for coffee off site. Ask her to speak freely, and don't jump over everything she says - if anything. Say how you feel, but make some constructive solutions. If you are not comfortable with f2f, try it in a civil sounding email.

Good luck.

I know how it fels to HATE your landlord. Mine was a BIG CUNT. Glad I moved out. She talks to tenants about other tenants. When something goes wrong, THE CUNT takes it on the wrong peoples. SHE "acts" frindly, but will stab you in the back. My frind reported the CUNT because she was smokeing in a non-designated part of the apartment building. Just because she's the LANDLORD, she thinks she can smoke anywhere she wants. FUCKING CUNT. I hated living at 120 Caron Ave. Floor 6. Windsor,Ontario,Canada. I'll NEVER move there to her building again. What BITCH.

Having lodgers in your house is no easy thing, particularly if they do not realise that they have to follow the rules to which they have agreed. I only ask my lodgers to hoover their room every two weeks, to air their room regularly, to clean up behind themselves in shared spaces.

Some lodgers have been absolutely lovely, and have stayed/ or returned for years ; others have been an unmitigated disaster. It all seems to depend upon whether they will keep to the rules set out or whether they think that, because they are paying for a room, they can do as they please.

Bad lodger examples : leaving kitchen walls dripping wet because they didn’t want to use the extractor hood (they didn’t like the noise), or open the door to the garden ; would not clean the oven after cooking meat - I’m a vegetarian ; leave their pubes in the bath - surprisingly, I’m not keen on that ; shouting at me and telling me to F off because I did not wish to change the place where I put my tea towels ; being told that as they pay me, why should they have to clean up after themselves ; smoking in the house ; leaving the front door wide open when going out in the evening ; not paying their rent ; breaking their bed; breaking their chair ; moving their boyfriend in ; ...

When you live with a live-in landlord, it is not a shared student house ; you are living in someone else’s home, and unless you are happy to follow their rules, don’t move in. You cannot change the rules once you move in, just because you pay rent, and you cannot behave like a spoilt teenager, as you may have done in your own home with your parents. And of course we will talk about you to our nearest and dearest if you are being awful, as you would to yours. And we may even say nice things too, because you are living in our home and we think you are a lovely person, and we are so glad you are easy to have around.

Insulting, denigrating, shouting, ignoring really doesn’t get you very far. Mutual respect and communication is the best way forward.

I lived with a live-in landlord in Reading. She was terrible.

I understand she had rules about keeping her house clean and tidy. BUT, she had an issue with me running the tap for too long and having too long showers. I also was only allowed to use the quick 30-min wash and dry option on the washing machine.

She also had rules about me not cooking in the kitchen, making a sandwich was okay only. I did pay rent, every week. In the end, I didn't cook anything in the house.

She used to come in to my room and tidy up, it didn't feel nice. I had no door lock.

It was torture living there several months. I couldn't wait to save up some money and move out.

I really hate my Landlady the way she has treated me during this pandemic was fucking dreadful, sorry excuse for a human being. And the self righteous bitch thinks she has done me a massive favour letting me be a few days late with the fucking rent. she is lucky that I have paid full rent during lockdown when I had lost my job, £7,200 I have paid that cow for sitting on her arse in 11 months, I get up at stupid o clock in the morning and work my arse off, I have heart problems and numerous other health issues, I am a single parent who has been living out of the food bank to pay this money grabbing brat. She has even sharked my deposit. Why are Landlords like this parasitical pricks. I have had enough of paying massive amounts of my hard earned money and living in total poverty and putting up with condescending remarks.
