I’m renting at present , I’ve a problem: a rat ate his way into the property via boiler house pipes ( ate thru expanding foam ) . it destroyed my washing machine , eating thru cabling & pipes . landlord informed , after 4 days they called pest control guy , he called twice that week and set traps . That was 2 weeks ago ! No visit since . rat has been seen since traps set ( wireless cameras ) just walked past them . ive been expected to still live here , but not allowed my child over until Rat is definitely gone , understandably I’ve gave notice to move out in 2 months , and landlords asking rent be paid in full as normal . Question , should I pay rent in full as expected ??
EAs must be feeling the game is close to up now with mentalist asking prices and volumes in the gutter. There is a feature on Rightmove 'send to friend' where you can email a property listing to a friend and leave a comment. Supposedly for the plebs to write "Look at this one darling, I've fallen in love with it!" My assumption is that the listing EA gets a copy of this message as a gauge of interest in the property and awaits the contact from the overly interested customer to ream appropriately. I've been emailing choice listings to a made up email address with some well chosen words regarding the asking price: "The Fat Fingered EA typed another 2 infront of the price here! Idiot." "Increased by £30k yesterday, reduced £30k today and now showing as reduced. EA outright lying. Desperation is palpable." "This Agent is going hungry again this month. Price to sell, idiot" This approach is designed to hit the EA personally whilst they think they are getting a sneak insight to the conversations of potential buyers. My choice of insult at the moment is idiot but this is likely to change. Every little helps, get messaging people!
