my landlord


he's slowly but surely starting to piss me off... actually, come to think of it... I've been slightly irritated with him since day one... he has this subtle attitude of ..."i am doing you such a favour"... i'm sorry?! am i not the one who's PAYING you to live in your fixed asset (saffas have you seen that tv ad, hilarious)...


what i bring to the party, the short and sweet version:


  • rent money that I pay into his bank account TWO weeks before the due date, so he's scoring slightly no?

  • i never pay late

  • i could list a load of other trivial stuff, but obviously i won't, cause ka-ching... that's what it's all about, not?

what he must bring to the party:


  • pay my deposit into an interest bearing account until i give notice, in whatever years... this is not my bright idea ...it's LAW! today I emailed him, requesting feedback of what was done to my deposit paid to him three months ago... his answer... he's still thinking about it! (come to think of it this is the second time I've mentioned it in a email to him, the other time he just ignored me)

  • for fucks sakes...

  • oh and jump when i say jump... but i'll forget about this one if he just pays my deposit into that interest bearing account!!

is this too much to ask?


did i do my part?


hell yes!


is he playing by the rules?


hell no!


stupid wanker... and what irritates me even more is that I'm just sucking it up!!!


who stole my spine???? why am i being such a passive aggressive?


every time i just don't expect him to be such an ass... I'm quite clueless at to what i should do, do i make a scene, force him? then our "relationship" is forever tainted with this incident... do i give him another month and then put on the pressure? it all is so simple... why he doesn't play by the rules i really don't understand... i don't like complications landlord... surely this is not too much to ask... if you don't comply i'll have to start doing what landlords absolutely hate...

put out my cigarettes on your carpet... (did i just say that?!)

He's probably spent the money that's why he's "still thinking about it". Sweets

sweets said...

hey louisa!!! i know! he admitted that he paid it into his credit card, but it's just not right! i even emailed him a copy of the legislation...AND it's stated in our contract... but he's wiping his off with it... :)

BecauseIcan said...

you need to be very careful.. he is obviously not playing by the rules and this is not good for you.. WHat will be the case when something goes wrong in the flat.. will he be adopting a similar stance?.. Time to end the friendly sweet demeanour and get the law on your side.. he cant just evict you(and wont because he knows a good thing when he sees it.
He is not doing you any favors and has no intention to either..

you tried the nice way.. now you need to get tough!

Ruby said...

tough girls rough girls, can't get enough girls.....la da da da da daaaa.......yes yes ok, so it's not the original words, sue me!

sleepyjane said...

Seems to be like he's bullshitting you. I agree with BecauseIcan. Get the law on your side asap and KEEP RECORDS. :) But I'm sure you're smart enough to do that. :)

Blech Landlords! My last one kept part of my deposit because they had to dig up my garden to build a parking spot for her daughter after she evicted me to put her daughter in the house! She said that I had planted the garden and laid the paving and it wasn't there before - what the weeds and car parts would have been cheaper to remove!!! Also I accidentally left my stunning braai in the backyard and she "charged" me to remove it. Ja, like she removed it!!! It cost a fortune and even had a special stir fry grid and a potjie hook and all! She actually admired it when she saw it when visiting me once. Grrr...

It's such fun having to nag people to do stuff they should be doing anyway.

Kingcover said...

It's a REALLY bad idea to distinguish your ciggies on the carpet - it would be such a waste of a better idea! .... stub them out on his ass instead. That way he has a permanent reminder that you are not happy and if you keep doing this each time something bad happens he can start counting up all the little lines and dots and then eventually he'll be able to complete a game of Dots And Boxes ;-)

sweets said...

bic... i did, i sent him an email this morning... telling him exactly what i expect NOW... and i haven't heard a word back yet...

rubes... hehe excuse the pun right?

jane... yes i have a special little folder marked ASSHOLE specially for him, where i keep all correspondence :)

angel... good grief, people must think we're dof... honestly hehe... you prolly can't wait for this to be overs kedovers right?!

kyk... i think he's into S&M...

king... ah wouldn't that be nice LOL

Arkwife said...

Grrr....I hate idiot landlords. I've been lucky not to have one myself, but I've seen enough in my time.

I think you should open a spreadsheet and work out how much interest you should be earning on your deposit. That way he can't cheat you out of a cent when you move on one day.

Ruby said...

he he...no pun intended.....................ok nevermind, I'm a terrible liar:) yes yes yes, excuse the pun:)

Flip Flop Momma said...

hmm...Maybe u need to think about buying your own place, then no more rent..

they put your deposit in an interst bearing account, and its law?...damn...thats kinda nice..I guess if they acctually do it..

I own a home back in my homeland and I have renters in it..the fuckers never pay and I just had to take em to court to get them evicted..

they owe me over 1200 bucks..so says a judge..I will never see it..or so they think..haha..cause i filled our papers to have iot taken right outta their income tax next year..

sneaky lil ole me:)

Slyde said...

i HATE landlords! when i was living in my apt, i had been there for 2 years and never missed a payment. One day my rent check got lost in the mail. i came home to an EVICT notice tacked to my door, one day after it was late after 2 years of early payments....

bastards...

The Jackson Files said...

He sounds like a complete knob, and the thing is that I bet he wouldn't be like this if you were a man or if you had a man around.

Personally, I think passive aggressive is good. What'll probably happen though is when you do decide to leave he'll find some reason not to give you your whole deposit plus interest back, like my skanky horrible ho landlady did in the UK.

I still hate her.

Faerie said...

he's an asshat.
that is all.

pure evyl said...

What a fucktard. I say leave shit on his doorstep.

Do you live in a sectional title unit, by any chance? Coz I know a kick-ass sectional title lawyer who is about to give away some free consultation time.
