Happy the man,and happy he alone,
He,who can call today his own;
He who,secure within,can say,
Tomorrow do thy worst,for I have lived today.
Landlords and tenants can never ever be friends and this is the way of life. I have learnt this lesson the hard way in Pune. No matter how friendly one side initially appears to be, animosity creeps into their relationship sooner or later. It is best to be aware of this possibility and to keep your relationship purely professional from the start.
There are exceptions, Sam. My landlord in Pune & I were and still are great friends.
I remember you once telling me that your landlord/landlady in Pune had given their room on rent purely for altruistic reasons. The rules change when money comes in the picture, ehich is usually the case.
Money was involved, although nominally!
