Right, I need some advice.|
Two weeks ago a new housemate moved in. He seemed great at the interview, he really liked the flat (he had a good look around and stayed for a few hours, had coffee and a chat, etc).
However, he is already really rubbing me up the wrong way.
Problem one: He plays the television in his room REALLY LOUDLY. Not too much of a problem at 7pm when I'm in the living room watching telly myself, but very annoying at 4am when I am trying to get to sleep. I've tried mentioning it to him, saying how it keeps me up all night, and his response was simply "well, I can't sleep without the telly on so I don't know what you expect me to do dude". I suggested that he turn it down, to which he replied "but I need it that loud to get to sleep". It's that loud that my bedroom wall vibrates and he does this EVERY NIGHT.
Problem two: He claims he is being bitten by things in his room, which he assumed, given I have a cat, must be fleas. Now, this would be a fair assumption except that a) my cat is a housecat and doesn't go outside, b) gets regular treatment every fotnight just to be on the safe side anyway, c) I have not seen any bugs or received any bites myself, d) the cat has not been inside that room in over two years. I suggested that if there is anything in the house that it is just in his room considering he is the only one supposedly affected, to which he said I was being stupid and that it has to be the cat (despite the fact that he works by a lake which, I know from experience, is infested with fleas). Not wanting to argue, I went out and got him some flea powders and sprays so he could treat his room, but he refuses to use them saying that they will bring him out in a rash.
Problem three: Before he moved in, I told him that he needed to pay a month's deposit. At the time he had no problem with that. The day he moved in, he suddenly developed a problem saying he couldn't pay the deposit all in one go because of problems with his old landlord. Fair enough, I gave him the benefit of the doubt and said he could pay in installments. Now, whenever I mention it, he says that he can't afford it and quickly changes the subject.
Problem four: Before he moved in, I told him that I had no problem with him having people come over or staying, so long as he let me know because I feel really uncomfortable having strangers in the house. Last night he brought someone over, didn't introduce them, and they stayed the night. I could have dealt with that, though I did find it inconsiderate. What I didn't like is that he then went to work this morning and LEFT THIS STRANGER IN THE HOUSE without telling me. He had even given him his keys.
Bearing in mind that he's only been here two weeks, I really feel like he is taking the piss. What should I do?
