Lisa O`Brien Posted January 11, 2013 Share Posted January 11, 2013 I`ve just found out that my landlord has not been paying the mortgage for this house I rent off him, or for the four others he "owns". I`ve lived here,very happily for the last 5 and a half years,and this house was a real "find". In the catchment area for my son`s secondary school of choice,and a spectacular view of the Mourne Mountains from my living room window. Rent only £100 a week, and he didn`t have a problem with me having a pet. Me,my [ballet-hating]15 yr old son and Blackie the cat. Being from Manchester originally, I have no relatives here;my son`s late father`s relatives are all in Ireland,but are at least 50 miles away. The estate agent said the For Sale sign will probably go up next week.Very nice and very helpful,but they won`t know if any buyer will want to continue to rent out,or will want to move in themselves. She suspects it will be bought as a rental property so ,hopefully, she thinks we will be able to continue to live here. Sorry folks,I`m rambling, but I just wanted to "tell" people about it as it has left me extremely upset and in floods of tears since this morning. Putting things into context,I realise the fact the landlord is having 5 houses re-possessed must be far more upsetting and traumatic for him than me. It`s just that I always felt an inner calm here,and came to realise, just in the last 6 months or so, that I would like to spend the rest of my life living in this house. Fingers crossed,the new landlord will allow me to stay, and he`s not some sort of a nightmare like I had once before. Thanks for reading,folks. Feel a bit better now.!
