This is to all those landlords that offer rundown tenement shoeboxes for "housing" (Housing is termed VERY lightly)
SHAME ON YOU!! I am apalled at the standard of "homes to rent in Dublin" Where do you get off offering pure squalor at top prices?? I am so infuriated that I've taken to wasting my time here writing about it!! I need to rant! I've had enough!
I've seen some choice places I can tell you and yes.. I will be making some calls to the Fire and safety authorities, it's one thing expecting people to live in rundown dirt but it's a whole other ball-game putting out lives at risk! I'm normally a very easy-going person but I'm dobbing you all in, you're taking the piss to a whole new level.
Other issues I have beyond me potentially dying in a fire due to your negligence:
Take accurate photographs of the property, I will SEE the property anyway so why put up photos that are old and totally differnent to the actual pig-sty you are offering.. stop wasting my time!!
How bloody hard it it to put a washing machine in??? Why do you think communal laundry or bathrooms is still acceptable? Not to mention COINED METERS???!! WTF??!
After EVERY tenant... PAINT the place!! You're asking for top rent then the place needs to be fresh and clean. Quit being such tight-fisted gits! Change or professionally clean the mattress!! Would you sleep on a stained bed??? You disgust me!
Offer a reasonable RENT!! Quit looking at other "nice" properties in the same area and posting the same rent.. LOOK AT THE DIFFERENCE!! If yours is a sh*tbox.. then it's NOT THE SAME PRICE!
And if you've somehow managed to let the property .. TAKE THE BLOODY AD OFFLINE!!!
I haven't even started on the "Agents" yet.. can't believe you actually get PAID for what you do.. what exactly do you do? I would have thought your job included knowing about the property??? Do me one favour... try come up with varied "I don't actually know" replies.. it's getting boring now.
I am so disheartened. : (
