Students leave rented houses in a total state shocker
Students are not known for their cleanliness. Rather, they’re known for trying to build a rocket out of lager cans and pizza boxes, making beds out of palettes and living in the kind of squalor that would offend most rats and slugs.
So it’s with a feeling of intense familiarity that we survey these pictures, courtesy of estate agent Nigel Loughtman of Tiger Property in Manchester.
Nigel owns several properties in the student hotspots of Manc, namely Fallowfield and Withington, where there is a grand tradition of covering the stinking carpet with more pizza boxes and old condoms than a landfill.
What’s most surprising is that Mr Loughtman is surprised by this.
‘Some of the states properties have been left in is unbelievable.' he flapped. 'We try and talk to tenants and make sure they understand about returning the property in the state they found it to get their full deposit back but it doesn’t always happen.
“I’d say only one per cent of our student tenants get none of their deposit back at all and around 10 per cent get all of their deposit back.’
That’s because they’re too busy shagging and using their front door as a coffee table, dude. And maybe it's just me, but some of these photos don't really look that bad...
