    I don't have any children but I'm 24 and am still living at home due to my disability and I can't afford to move out. I recently started a new part time job and am due to get my first pay check on Friday. Even though my mum's job is well paid (she's a doctor) she plans on charging me a small amount of rent to teach me the value of money and living. I've never paid rent before as this is my first permanent job. My boyfriend's parents also charge him rent even though he only works one day a week his mum redirects some of his wages into her bank account to contribute to the rent and bills but then her job isn't as well paid as my mum's and his dad is semi retired.

  • Can my landlady increase my rent because I planted several bushes?

    I didn't think this was such a big deal, but she came over in a rage because I planted two bushes.

    I didn't think this was such a big deal, but she came over in a rage because I planted two bushes. She then ordered the gardener to remove them immediately, & then increased my rent AGAIN to punish me for planting them. She just increased my rent six months ago, so to now raise it again over two bushes isn't fair. I rent month to month, so she claimed she can raise it every month if she wants to. Is this true? It's already way too high for what I'm getting. I've never once been late on my rent, and most of the time even pay it early. I'm trying to help her by planting bushes. When I moved in there was grass, now there's just dirt in the front yard. It looks really plain & I doubt it will be easy for her to rent out again looking like it does now. I moved here because I liked the way the front yard looked before she tore everything out. I can't believe what a rage she was in over the bushes. I think there's something mentally off with her.

I realize now that they were scoping the home to see if anyone was living there than they jumped over the fence and somehow broke into the home maybe through a window. Maybe they needed a place to stay so they broke in now I don't feel safe living in my neighborhood. I live right across the street, what do I do? Should I call the cops?

    So I moved into a student house 2/3 months ago. When we moved in the property was in an awful condition but the estate agents described it as clean and immaculate! We had broken windows, cockroaches and ants, broken sofas, broken oven the list goes on and on! It’s been nearly 3 months and there are still problems, we still have cockroaches and now they’re starting to lay eggs and have been hatching which is grim. I left a bad google review on the estate agents site and the guy literally came round the very next day saying it was unfair and that I had to take it down, it made me feel really uncomfortable as well as I’m only 20 and he’s a middle aged man. I didn’t think it was professional of him at all. Do I have any rights ? Can I refuse to pay my rent or anything as we’ve still got cockroaches, the fire alarm system is broken and keeps saying general fault! When I told them the same guy that had a go at me over the review told me it means we’ve been smoking in the property which is a complete lie, it actually means there’s a problem with the battery. They then tried to blame us for the broken sofas saying we did it and have ignored the fact that the floor in the garden is cracking and we’re sure there is a basement or something underneath which is very unsafe! What can I do as I’m sure they’re going to try and blame us for a lot more !

    Okay... So, I m looking at buying a property fairly soon. It s an empty plot of land with a dirt road connecting to the main road about a a quarter mile or so away. I talked to the realtor earlier today, and he said that the city was demanding that the road to be paved before building on said property could begin. I would be the only house up there at the time, but not the only property; so it s not a privet road. However, they are trying to make whoever buys said property to pay for the paving. So, my question is; can city make or demand a property owner to pay for a public road to be paved?

    My landlord is really nice. However, they just don't follow our contractual agreement. My apartment has no fire alarm, or carbon monoxide dector required by law. I 3 months ago and have yet to recieve the proper equipment. My bathroom sink has beenout of order for 3 months. I have been constanly giving verbal reminders and am getting an "okay" with no action following. My oven is broken and he is asking my husband to repair. Last time i checked our only obligation was to pay the rent on time which we do above and beyond. Sometimes we even pay months in advance. I feel like I am being walked on and I will not tolerate it. We work hard for our money to pay to live comfortably. The family lives downstairs from us and his wife does not work. They just sit back and collect money without holding up their end of the agreement. When you decide to rent you property to someone you must have everything up to code. Otherwise you should not rent! I don't understand how that is not understood. I have never been late with rent and I'm so pissed off because he has been ignoring me for days when his car is in the driveway. Can't move right now because I am pregnant and in graduate school + working for the state full-time. Any practical advice would be helpful.

  • Do estate agents always make enough money to at least live on?

    I read an article somewhere that if you want a career with a stable and steady income, being an estate agent is not for you. As long as I'm making £8,500 per year, I'm safe and can cover my bills. Is there any chance I would make less than this?

    Maths isn't my strongest subject, although I can do basic maths. I also took business as an A-level and struggled with it - in the end I had to drop the subject. When it comes to stuff like marketing etc, I just haven't got a clue. English was always my strongest subject, I think I'd be good at advertising properties, although I do sometimes struggle with wording letters and emails. Also, in some ways I'm not very mature. I'm a 20 year old girl, I'm not saying I have a bad attitude but don't really get how things work in the real world - I've never bought a home before and just don't feel like a proper adult yet. Will I have to talk a certain way when communicating with solicitors etc? Or is it quite easy, am I just overthinking it? And I read somewhere that estate agents should be able to give you an expert view on how much your house is worth - how do estate agents do this? I feel like I wouldn't be able to walk into a house and just know how much it's worth, I would probably get it wrong by thousands of pounds. Or is estimating the value of a property something I could learn and getter better at?
