Reasons Not To Be A Student Landlord

Recommended Posts

End of year parties in May and they start back in October. All part of the brilliant and expensive methods contrived to educate our kids. No wonder it takes three or four years. But I guess it serves BTL well. We would only need a third of the properties if they did a crash course.

Ah, we did some really stupid things with our student house in Birmingham...

...but it was a tip when we moved in, so why would we give a damn? Thinking back we were pretty lucky the boiler didn't kill us.

We had a back boiler, and burned some of the furniture! The miners were on strike and I was in Newcastle! Some of my house colleagues were related to miners, and didn't like Thatcher much! Eventually we went "scab" and bought some Polish coal! :blink:

We burned much of the garden shed, though to be honest that was just for a laugh.
