From arriving completely unannounced to refusing to fix broken windows, we’ve all got a disturbing story to tell.
But to be honest, none of them top Steffy’s landlord horror story.
Steffy, who lives in London, went viral on Twitter over the weekend after he shared that he was evicted from his upstairs flat because his landlord (who lives in the downstairs flat) wanted to use the entire property to host his 50th birthday party. (Yes, really.)
After Steffy told his landlord that he felt uncomfortable with him using the communal areas in his flat, the landlord said that he had “very little option” but to evict him. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
"My landlord served us notice because he wanted to have a party using the whole house," Steffy wrote on Twitter, responding to a tweet about renting in London.
"London landlords are the dregs of society," he added.
After reading Steffy's story, we decided to reach out to Mamamia readers about their landlord horror stories.
Here's what they shared:
"I had a terrible one where the woman accused me of harassment and said she was afraid for her life because I kept asking her to fix our air conditioning. I was 19 at the time and had just moved to Sydney so I told her my dad had permission to be my proxy to communicate with her.
