I purchased, one and a half years ago, a second-hand fridge freezer for €100 plus delivery. It died, and my poor lodgers have been without a fridge-freezer in this heat.
I feel for them, especially as they were returning guests. However they were very understanding, and as my caretaker had lost his wife and so of course couldn’t concentrate 100% on them I have offered that they don’t have to pay for the utilities during their stay. I feel that’s the least I can do to show some goodwill. My caretaker has now replaced the fridge-freezer with a brand new one. Many thanks to him.
I have had and still have a great season, thanks to Novasol, my letting agent. It has been the best move I have made toward renting out the flat. This year it has been rented out all of June, July and August bar 1 week. And it’s even occupied for 3 weeks in November. Not at all bad, at least it is now paying for itself.
