    Default Don't Rent to Snowflakes

    linky

    A growing number of landlords are refusing to rent homes to people under the age of 35, according to research.

    A study by boffins at Sheffield Hallam University found that one third of landlords were cutting back on renting to young tenants due to concerns over whether they could afford rents.

    Had a couple of gay chaps, vets actually, in my place. So tidy.

    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Were they paying any rent, or did they agree to find other ways of making themselves useful?

    Interesting so landlords are even more biased and don't like straight people.

    Are you insinuating that barrydidit is a lesbian?
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Bit of a generalisation. Asking for proof of salary might make more sense.

    Tenancy laws seem a bit overgenerous to tenants in my view.

    I did once try to chat up a girl in a bar. She told me she was a lesbian. I told her I was happy to take her up the oxo tower.
