No Power, Water For Sixty Families At Owner’s Mercy
After 3 years, the landlady (sister/-in-law of the owner actually - long story!) asked to increase the rent by 50KD. Although I know the law and all that yada yada, I didn't have a fit; it was all good. I know she travels a lot and gets her hair did like I do on the regular. The apartment is so amazing (Mashallah) and I have so much privacy and amenities that I didn't blink an eye before agreeing to the rent increase (the first time she asked me). It was all very friendly and amicable, New rent, new lease agreement extending the payment rate for a few years; girlfriend gets her hair done. Everybody is happy and I'm even thinking about re-decorating the big bathroom (Crazy-Dog-Lady Legacy - ha ha!).
