The Alliantie Are Uncaring Landlords.

Pedro Friedeberg.

Pigeons woke me trying to nest in our window box, the dogs did their best to persuade the birds to go away, which they do as soon as they jump up at the windows.

Sadly our landlords have let us down once again this year, and have failed to install the anti pigeon devices.

Which means there are pigeons nesting in the whole building; outside the smell of pigeon shit is overwhelming.

It is a constant battle chasing the birds away, amazing how our landlord never does anything except take our rents, which they increase yearly.

This building is supposed to be accessible for  the handicapped, sadly this is not true, even before I had my electric wheelchair I could not visit my neighbours.

A heavy glass door needs to be held open, they could have installed an electronic opening system, like there is for the main entrance.

The lift is not fire proof so if there is a fire all residents in wheelchairs, would have to be lifted out of the window by the fire brigade.

The walkways are made of metal slats so that rolling over them triggers off spasms and the button for the life is inaccessible in a wheelchair.

To top it all I can not sit in the sun in our backyard, because the ground has subsided enough to prevent me rolling outside.

Oh dear Herrad,
Sounds like there needs to be a lot of work done in your building. Do you have a government landlord and tennant act there? We have them here, and the building has to be up to the government standards.

Bird droppings can be a health hazard. I would report it to the Public Health agency. In the meantime, you could put plastic spike bird deterrent strips outside your windows. They are cheap and easy to install.

That's crappy!
Your Landlords sound like Slumlords...not caring to provide a pleasant environment. Hubby & I were Landlords for years. We had a couple little duplex and Im pretty sure our tenants loved us. Especially when we lived 4 doors down.
I can just see your sweet pups on "pigeon patrol".
Love to you Herrard and I hope you have a splendid WEdnesday.

Hi Karen,
Thanks for coming by.
We had all the tenants protection but there is not much left after the government privitised housing.
This building was finished in autumn 2006.
Here they will not do anything once the birds have nests even though they are seen as pests.
I wonder where we can but the plastic spike bird deterent here.

Hi Janis,
Thanks for your visit and comment.
Our landlord really does not care.
I am sure you were great landlords.

Thanks you 2 dear friends for coming by.
