I've had a fair few dodgy landlords over the years.
One house came within minutes of catching on fire due to dodgy wiring.
One house had electical wires taped together with sticky tape. There were holes in the walls, covered by tape and painted over. At the end of the lease the owner made up about 100 pages of 'evidence' of all this apparent damage we'd done to the property. It included things like a picture of a new toilet. The judge (or whatever they are called) at tribunal saw straight through it all and he did not get the bond thankfully.
One house had a glass stove top that shattered under heat one night. I went into labour the next morning, RE was closed over the weekend, reported it on the monday and got breached for not reporting it straight away. Apparently being in labour/having a baby wasn't a valid excuse to not report it asap.
Last house was mould infested, lacked any security, I wasn't supplied keys for the back door or both screen doors, had no working smoke alarms, had heaps of leaking taps, so much rubbish left at the property. The PM even told me after I'd signed the lease the owner would never spend a cent on repairs.
Current property has issues as well and owners who don't like to spend money. None of the exhaust fans work and there are no windows in most rooms. There is issues with the pipes. Loose carpet on the stairs -I've already tripped on it and broken my hand. Owners have breached access-clearly no respect for their tenants privacy.
