  1. I had planned to throw her out if she came out with any comments like thsi, but my father advised me against it because her parents (who are the owners of the property) could just serve me notice. Her father was also there so had to be a bit more careful. So instead I just did as you said, told her it's nothing to do with her as it's not affecting the structure of the property, to which she didn't have a response. I also pointed out on several occasions when she was mentioning the garden that it is actually winter, and therefore not the best time for mowing the garden. The landlord is her
  2. Ah, that's interesting, so if they do come back and try to claim that it was untidy and therefore she had a right to be annoyed I can quote the OFT I would have told them to F off anyway if they did say that, but it's better to have something like that to quote. Thanks.
  3. Thanks, will have to check it out before pushing it. To be honest, even if she does come again, if she starts with the same attitude I'll just put her out. I've made the complaint now so hopefully someone will have a word.
  4. I didn't realise I could do that, thought the landlord could ask anyone to inspect. If that's the case I'll just insist that someone else conducts the inspection. Thanks to everyone who has replied.
  5. Yep, one girl and another on the way (due in June). So another reason not to move if possible, don't think my wife needs to have all the stress at the moment. I did send a complaint to the agency this morning, stating exactly what was said and why I thought it was unacceptable, rude and disrespectful. I requested that either in future inspections are conducted by another person, or if by her then she needs to speak to us in a more respectful manner. I asked them to forward it to the landlord if he needs to deal with it. Now awaiting the reply.
  6. Yeah, done so up to now, including copying emails to myself. Already worked out well when we waited for months to have a repair done, I had a long chain of emails requesting that the work be done. After 6 months I said if it wasn't done within a week, we'd start deducting £25 from our rent for each week it remained unresolved, they still didn't fix it for a month so we took £75 from our rent, as we weren't receiving the full service we were paying for. It only got sorted when we got environmental health on the case. When they chased us for the money, I sent the chain of emails to them, and the
  7. Look what happens, I nip out to lunch and get loads of replies I've been looking around for houses in our area but can't see any unfortunately at the moment so will have to keep looking. We only moved in just over a year ago, and my daughter was a bit upset at losing her friends. She's now made more at her new school so don't really want her to have to change again, but if all else fails... Exactly, just a shame he didn't ask her to wind her neck in when she started being silly. I believe the property was empty for about a year before we moved in, they'd tried unsuccessfully to sel
  8. I suggested that to my wife actually, we've been asking for a number of repairs recently, such as the shower and heating, and previously a window that wouldn't lock shut (could simply push on it to open it, so an obvious security risk). They've never been happy at paying for these repairs, I think they assumed by renting they would be getting in loads of dosh and not having to spend any. I'm going to annoy them even more soon - we've started getting condensation inside our double glazing, obviously an issue somewhere.
  9. Exactly, and thats what I told her when she mentioned the kitchen. She also said when she first walked into the lounge "oh, you use this room mainly as an office then". I didn't realise until later that she was refererring to the printer and paperwork in the corner of the room, probably another snipe at the "mess". What's the problem with using the lounge for doing work? Is it harming her? I'm not running a business from home, I just work from home occasionally, and all the paperwork was our bills etc. I see your point about the landlord having to put up with her, my opinion of him has just
  10. I suspect you're both right. She turns up in her huge Merc (not that I've got anything against Merc owners), thinking she's a lot more important than she is. Each time I responded she couldn't really reply with anything, except for "errr, ok". I had to bite my tongue a bit after the "so you call this tidy" comment, I think the response I had in mind would have got us evicted.
  11. Hi All, On Saturday morning we received a call from the landlady's daughter, which my wife answered, claiming that there had been a complaint about our garden being overgrown. As we get on well with our neighbours, and most gardens in our street are overgrown (as it's winter), we were a bit confused by this, but nevertheless she said she would be arranging an inspection. About 5 minutes later the estate agents called to say the landlady's daughter would be calling round on Monday morning to "check on repairs" that were being done. On Monday we had a guy coming out to look at the shower (only
