My SITTING Landlady | #SackYourLandlord

Sack Your Landlord

I will like to advice anyone seeking for accommodation; consider a house without a sitting landlord or landlady. I once secured a 2-bedroom apartment, somewhere in downtown Lagos, hoping to enjoy a brand new lease of life after living in a face-me-I-slap-you for years, but reverse was the case. I have a live-in landlady that monitors every movement in and ...

My Provocative Landlady | #SackYourLandlord

Sack Your Landlord

One of the greatest achievements on earth is to be a landlord, one of the reasons why our fathers in those days preferred building houses above every other thing. The many bitter experiences these days also warrant or should motivate every young person to aspire ‎in building even if it’s only a house. ‎MY EXPERIENCE: I reside in Lagos, Nigeria, ...

My POLICE Landlord | #SackYourLandlord

Sack Your Landlord

If there should be any advice I must give to fellow tenants, it is that one should never ever live in the same compound as the landlord. It is the worst living code ever. I have witnessed the wickedness, the evil of landlords that usually live in the same compound with their tenants. There is always constant policing of every ...

My Phobia for Landlords | #SackYourLandlord

Sack Your Landlord

Growing up in my father’s three bedroom flat, I didn’t get the chance to have a one-on-one experience of ‘landlordship’. But I heard so many malicious stories about landlords and their tenants ranging from enforcement of unnecessary laws on tenants, random increments in house rent, the use of abusive and derogatory words on tenants and so on and so forth, ...

My Landlord’s precious bathroom | #SackYourLandlord

Sack Your Landlord

Hi, I’m Samuel and five hundred words cannot suffice to tell you all I went through but I’ll just type what comes to mind now… He was nice at first; he even called me son. I complained about the ventilation of my room, a window had somehow been permanently locked allowing for no cross-ventilation and he promised to do something ...

My Landlord & I: A disgusting experience | #SackYourLandlord

Sack Your Landlord

“Omoolorun!” The guttural voice rang out. Bobbing up the seabed of sleep, doped by the searing heat of my matchbox room, my eyes struggled to acclimatise to the force of the piercing sun, determined to rid my wearied frame of the last embers of slumber. The voice stung my ears again, this time ferociously. I had gotten quite used to ...

My Bad Landlord | #SackYourLandlord

Sack Your Landlord

I am Odeyemi ibukun Amos and I can’t but talk about my former landlord. Staying in a rented apartment can be fun and it can also be hell. Was my experience fun or was it the other way round? You will find out when I’m done with my story. As a student in my year 2 at the university, I ...

Epic fight with my landlord | #SackYourLandlord

Sack Your Landlord

Kayode! Kayode!! Kayode!!!. He yelled. I was tired of his nonsense. This was the fifth consecutive day he had come to my apartment and his ranting though justified had frayed my nerves. I had exhausted every worthwhile excuse and my creative repertoire was depleted.  Silence. Sweet silence. Silence was the way. I had shut the blinds and turned off the ...

A JUDAS among house owners | #SackYourLandlord

Sack Your Landlord

The tyrannical belittlement of landlords cannot be over flogged; erratic rent increments inversely proportional to comfort, incessant rants on tenants in a show of superiority and forceful ejection after few months default on rents. I can go on and on. If the aforementioned practices are norms for landlords, then my landlord is a ‘Judas’. A man in his early sixties, ...
