Landlord’s agent ( QEII being busy ) came over first thing to basically discuss upping the rent. I pointed out the snagging list I’ve compiled ( cracks, flaking paint, missing plaster and window putty falling off and a gas hob that works when it wants to).
She has recorded it all and I expect some may be seen to shortly), however in our chat i mentioned looking for a garage and she said they do have one on their books adjoinging ascot racecourse ( literally back on the same wall). Even odder the address is course road where lived from 2001-2003! No idea on cost, but I registered an interest. An even better home for Monsieur traction avant than my sister’s in oxford.
I think she sees me as a not-difficult tenant and will try and help. I don’t moan unnecessarily or demand things be done instantly.
She Did say that she’d try to keep the rent the same next year, but may be forced by the powers that be to up it.
If anyone is interested there are a couple of nice cottages up for rent in Windsor great park at the moment - newly renovated.
Part of me wants to enquire - and move lock stock - so I can say I live in Knobs Crook cottage! Those places look bloody lovely!
