Going to add another mainland China landlord - Queen's Terrace in Sheung Wan: greedy and dishonest.
First year of the lease gone and she start complaining about the rent - we offer to leave (two months notice, flat inspection and all) but she repeatedly sent the agent to ask not to; we stayed and big mistake was that, we are still here and keep paying for pipes and airco and toilet - she wouldn't want to pay for anything (nice flat, bad maintenance).
Now is the gas stove - the glass top exploded with a loud noise (lucky we were not in the kitchen) and the Town gas came in and turn off the gas valve - burners too old, all too dangerouse to use but the landlady wouldn't hear any of it.
She is now threatening that - if we do not fix it and pay for it, she will deduct the costs for the stove from our
deposit at the end of the lease. And the end of the lease is not early then two months and a week.
Meaning not only that we will have no possibilities of cooking for the next 9 weeks - but that we will also have to pay for the stove (as old as the building, Towngas gay says he is replacing even two per day lately)
On a side remark - why can not make a "bad landlords of Hong Kong" list here?
