Have you lived in a tenancy? What about it and your roommate?

Since I changed several tenancies lately I met pretty interesting people. The thing is that I not only met them but I had to live and share with them. The only benefit was the low price of the rent. I would like to hear if anyone has an interesting story about his roommate or a tenancy. I have several but I will share them if there is an interest in this topic.

Best Regards,
Cheryl Parker

A few years ago, when I was living on a tenancy I had a roommate that had the habit to clean her room once on every 4-5 months... It was horrible.. The smell coming from her room was... I don't have enough words to describe it... Of course, she hadn't cleaned her room and I needed to call an end of tenancy cleaning Islington team...

And those smoking ones... I just hate how everything around the house smells like tobacco. I cant stand it. I would like to add one more question for anyone who intends to join the topic. How to deal with such roommates? How to persuade them to clean and keep clean as much as you? Sensible solution anyone?

Best Regards,
Cheryl Parker

How far from the Thames are you? A rope, rock and the problem is solved. An extra benefit, the fishes get fed.

It's kind of sad, but I had a roomate that hid his sexuality. He brought home tons of girls all the time, to make it "look" like he was straight. But it was very obvious and clear as day that he was gay. To make a long story short, he ended up coming out to us- the roomates. We were pretty shocked, but we supported him no matter what he did.

I've had roommates borrow my clothing and eat my food. Those are the two things that I HATE to share. It's was very annoying and I was passive aggressive about it which made it worse.
