Skip

The freeholder continues to drive me mad. She hand delivered a letter on Monday which said “I nailed up my back door shut so no-one could get in. Then I brought a builder round on Saturday and couldn’t get round the back because I had nailed the back door shut and you locked the gate and didn’t give me a key. Send me it.”. I may have paraphrased slightly. Right, she nailed her back door shut… she failed to secure the gate for years due to having no interest… The whole world doesn’t revolve round her bizarre way of dealing with security matters and somehow this is my fault.

Yesterday morning as I was setting off for work, a man was standing on the drive staring at the freeholders empty flat. I asked him what he was doing and he said he was about to deliver a skip. The only free space was the one belonging to my neighbour, as another neighbour uses the one for the empty flat. So the skip was put in my neighbour’s parking space. No warning. No checking this was ok, which clearly it isn’t due to her having a car that just happened not to be parked there at the time. No wondering if leaving a flat empty for years might mean that someone else uses the parking space. I had actually said to my neighbour a couple of weeks ago that she needed to make sure she parked in her space or else it would probably be ‘taken’ by the freeholder. I feel another letter to the freeholder coming on telling her that she can’t just put a skip on the drive and that I certainly don’t want it outside my bedroom window. G has offered to kill her. That is Plan B.

Is there no way ye can join together and buy the freehold off this idiot! I'm sure there's a law somewhere that says if enough of ye want to buy then they have to sell.

I think placing the freeholder *under* the skip might be a good idea...(sounds almost as useful as our factor - who left an open sewer pipe for weeks disgorging its sewery offerings, before finally relenting and getting it fixed very badly. Now the pipe sort of dribbles effluent. Nice..

yep - Plan B sounds about right.

spudgy - we looked into this last year and got a surveyor out, but my neighbours couldn't afford to do it. We could try and take over the management of the property though.

gripes - an excellent idea. It's not totally full though so I might not be able to lever it up to slide her under. She has been equally lax abotu maintenance of the other flat she owns and a leak dripped down into my neighbours flat and eventually made their bathroom floor collapse.

FIMG - I will now use you as my defence. You told me to do it!

I think you and your neighbours should fill the skip up with your own rubbish.

I have tagged you btw with a meme...

I'm with G. Sometimes murder is justified.

kahless - i got home last night and it was already full. I'm not sure if that is because my neighbours had that idea already!

Oh yea, I'll have a think about the meme and see what I can come up with.

LKSN - Maybe G can sort it out for me today. Sometimes a letter just isn't enough.

SKIP to it RR.

So, what's your plan C?

A sign - your word verification is KIL(L)ED. You haven't been arrested now. Have you?

Random Reflections said...

TF - Do I need a Plan C? Plan B is getting more and more appealing...

My word verification is very wise and must never be ignored. Next time it will say "GIVE ME ALL YOUR MONEY". Be prepared
