I have been renting for almost a year and recently moved into a rented room in a 'professional' house. I am absolutely sick of it but can't face moving again as I have moved about too much recently. It is the usual shared house stuff; a pile of dishes the size of a mountain, disgusting mess and no one ever seeming to clean or care. How do I tackle this without annoying people. I only have to put up with this until I find a house to buy, maybe another 6 months. The person who owns the house is the worst offender and she is likely to throw me out if I annoy her! There is no contract.
