There are few things as stressful and frustrating as having a rotten landlord .
Yet it’s an all-too familiar scenario which, if you’ve been lucky enough to dodge, then someone you know will have experienced.
There are many ways in which a landlord can be a rotter (as can a tenant, to be fair).
But one has definitely raised the bar with his bizarre policy towards going to the toilet.
Basically, he’s somehow managed to monetise FLUSHING the loo.
“Is this legal?”
The tenant said it costs the equivalent of more than 50p to flush the toilet each time, and the cost and inconvenience is steadily getting worse.
After all, you can’t exactly leave these things to fester.
A picture of the loo was uploaded to Imgur by a Melbourne-based tenant who understandably wanted to know if his landlord was even allowed to do this.
“I understand in our laundry having to pay for the communal washing machine,’ he said.
“But I pay the water bill that goes into my apartment. He said it was a government incentive to save water. But then why does he get to collect the money?”
The responses, resoundingly, told the tenant to seek advice.
However, not everyone was convinced by the commode.
Executing this coin-operated flush must have taken some decent mechanical know-how, something which one skeptic pointed out.
“I’m trying to work out how it would even mechanically operate? C’mon dudes.”
We almost hope this is fake, so other landlords don’t cotton on to this money-spinner.
