16 Landlord-Related Problems Every Student Has Faced At Least Once

If you have ever lived in student housing at uni before, you’ll have encountered most of these problems…

1. Having to clean your own house before you move in because they didn’t bother checking the property over the summer.

It’s the crappiest team-building activity ever.

2. Which brings about the first of many,ย manyย house-related fights with your housemates.

“I am not touching that sink.” “Well, my room is smaller than yours and I still have to pay the same rent so it’s only fair if you clean it!” “But it’s closer to your room!”

8. Don’t even get me started on the fact that the internet a. will not be set up by the time you move in or b. will be set up but not work for the entire duration you live there.

I just want to watch Netflix, is that too much to ask?

9. Naturally, your landlord doesn’t ever use their phone.

Maybe they just blocked my number?ย ๐Ÿค”

10. Or respond to emails.

11. In fact, the only time they message you is to remind you that your rent is due.

12. Or they might respond saying ‘ok’ but never actually do anything.

14. Which is a big issue when you’ve got a spot of mould in the bathroom growing by the minute.

15. Possibly the worst thing a landlord can do is to just assume it’s fine to waltz into your house at any time without giving any notice.

16. And after all the shit they put you through over the year, they’ll have the audacity to keep your deposit.
