It’s really annoyed me as this move was really her idea and she proposed it so we’d have somewhere we both could stay for quite a while, but it’s turned out it was more a move so she could save for her trip……..
- For one, the landlord hasn’t taken any rent from the housemate yet. 3 months have gone by and they’ve not asked her for a penny and she, understandably, isn’t about to mention it. It is their fault – they’re the one who should have set up the Direct Debit, and they haven’t chased it at all. But it worries me that if she leaves in February, and they check their details maybe the end of the tax year, and I am still in the flat they’ll want me to stump up the cash as we’re on a joint contract. I certainly will not have a spare couple of thousand and I am sure she wont whilst she is ‘finding herself’ in Thailand!
- Plus I don’t have any friends who are need on a room at the moment so it would mean sharing with a random again, which, yes, might not be all THAT bad –I did meet some lovely people in my last house – but also some MENTAL ones. Can I be bothered with that?
- And also I think, somewhere at the back of my mind, that maybe I should start to grow up, and you know, buy somewhere. Even if it is just so I have somewhere to paint the colours I want, or have the artwork I want up.
