All that’s rubbish does not glitter!

During the summer we regularly conduct renovation and maintenance works requiring a skip.

The tenants of one particular group chose to store their belongings in an empty kitchen bin, during the summer! I know… I know! it is crazy, but it is absolutely true!

With a new tenant joining the existing continuing group we cleaned common areas and emptied the bin into the skip outside the house.

The tenants returned prematurely in late August, angry to see their discarded goods in the skip!

It is frustrating to be castigated for doing what was logically the right thing, to avoid complaints about rubbish!.

Had the new tenant arrived before the bin was emptied they would have had reasonable cause to complain if the bin was not emptied – sometimes it is impossible to get it right!

What are your thoughts?

About the author


Formerly a student living in a rented room my vision focused on excellence. Letting phenomenal student houses soon became more than a day job - more a way of life.

Continuing to look after our tenants I subsequently also founded what is widely recognised as a phenomenal student lettings agency.
