7 Mar 2017 - A property mogul says errant tenants have cost him thousands of pounds in plumbing repairs just by flushing baby wipes down the toilet.

I'm waiting for the day they report that DynoRod have had to call in heavy lifting specialists because one of his tenants has flushed Fatty down the toilet.

Thanks everyone - this is the closest I get to watching a sitcom these days :) 

"To dig up the floor costs thousands, it’s six months worth of rent gone."

One assumes the days of prawns behind the radiator are now long gone :)

Presumably The Fat Fiend's tenants are filling the baby wipes with concrete first.

I'm sure their babies are doing a fine job filling their nappies as it is :)

 

Presumes of course that his current tenants feel secure enough to unleash more feckless tenants onto the world. 

I've heard babies live off handouts and are pretty irresponsible. Do they make it onto the 2017 list of undesirables? After all, some might have ambitions to become plumbers?!

She said: “We saw the front door was broken first of all.

"But when we opened it to have a look inside, I can only describe my feelings as total amazement and horror.

"I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.”

The banister had been ripped off the stairs and dumped in the middle of the living room, there was broken glass on the floor, doors had been kicked off, the bathroom sink had been smashed, toys and rubbish was strewn everywhere and ketchup had been squirted on walls.

It was discovered last Saturday.

Mrs Gilbert, who has two properties on the Island and one in Sittingbourne, said: “It’s just shocking. It’s definitely been maliciously damaged.”

Double :lol:

so if the woman [who judging by what's under the mess had provided a decent, clean, maintained rental to her tenant] now tops herself due to financial pressure leaving sick parent whom she is taking into her own home for care reliant on the state will YOU be upping it to Triple grins?

Relax, these landlords are hard-nosed, capable business people not gormless amateurs. Nobody would let property without realising that lousy referencing of tenants and inadequate insurance will leave them potentially facing big losses.

I think you need to take a good long look at yourself, ebull.

How dare you take such a patronising attitude towards landlords? It's not as if any idiot can leverage up to the eyeballs and then start angling for sympathy when things go wrong. These guys are professionals. Show some respect.

A bare knuckle fist fight is more meritocratic than the housing market. Two men (in the same weight class) can both train to the best they can and try to win. In the housing market a hard working higher earner that pays plenty of tax and contributes to society, often can't get a mortgage for the amount of money asked.

Fergus Wilson as much as he is being a d***head, is not being true to form here. This has more to do with his ego and wanting to appear tasty in his old age, obviously.

Duet:

Oh Landlord, oh Landlord,

I cannot pay the rent,

Well ****** you you renter,

Go and buy a tent.

But a tent is so cold,

And I am getting old,

 I don't care.

I only want gold

Show mercy great Fergus,

And let me rest awhile.

Piss off you sponger,

you're cramping my style

 

I want to make a million or more,

Drabs like you

Make me feel sore.

 

But what about my babies and my wife?

Business is business

Looks like Fergus has added 'coloureds' to the list of people he won't rent to...

In the Sun as well, so national coverage as well as local. What a helmet.

Guess how often owner occupiers trash the property they live in?

This kind of behaviour is what you get when people are denied a stake in society.
