Translating housing wanted ads

Discussion in 'The Intelligence Cell' started by knockknee, Sep 1, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I have tried to translate a number of current ads for private tenancies.

    Apologise if I have made a wrong inference.

    Hi, we are looking for a 2/3 bedroomed house to start a family in the Salford 5 or Salford 6 areas. Recently come out of work so therefore must accept housing benefit. Please contact ASAP.


    Outa work I get a benefits increase for each item of breeding. But we cannot get the full rent out of Local Housing Allowance till we have two kids. Might pay you what we can in meantime.

    Hello I am in need of a 2 bedroomed house, which accepts DSS, and which doesnt need a deposit, or if it does need a deposit can pay over time but not all at once.

    if anyone out there is letting their home out please let me know ASAP.
    at the minute i am a single mother and have a son who is soon to be one years old, the house i am in now has no central heating, and is damp and my son has asthma. So really need a new property which has gch and dg before the winter comes.


    My kid is one year old so I either knew about the damp house when I first rented or irresponsibly and selfishly got pregnant in those conditions. Now I want to use extra benefits and local housing allowance to get better house more kids to follow

    hi there we are a family of 7 in need of a long term house rental with 4 or 5 bedrooms we are decent people at moment we are living in rented accomodation but we have been let downby landlord who doesnt do any of the repairs that need doing ie floorboards are broken with big holes in and 1000s of other things we are decent people please if you can help get in touch asap


    I am too idle to fix the floorboards and stop the cost out of the rent. Why can't I stop the cost out of rent ? Because I am in so much arrears the landlord gets his rent directly paid by council to stop me getting my thieving hands on any more of it. I either accepted this tenancy with holes in the floor or the holes happened during my tenancy. Whoops.

    Couple looking for a Fully Furnished House in MAnchester or Surrounding Areas, Must accecpt DSS. Looking for new property due to Landlord selling home on Market and have been given 30 days notice depsite being here 2 years. We are clean,respectful and are great tenants, Small deposit or deposit being payable over a couple of months would also be great due to short notice given us by landlord


    Our landlord county courted us for rent arrears and damages and the bailiffs took our furniture to pay off part of our debt
  2. So work and pay yer taxes you have a welfare fund to maintain.
  3. Do they actually have housing stock in Miles Platting? I thought that the thieving, lazy, workshy cnuts who inhabit the place had demolished it all to sell off as hardcore. Maybe the slack-fannied pikey slapper is looking to part-exchange her caravan?
  4. An erudite appreciation. These are all current ads on Gumtree Manchester.
  5. Excellent translation, Knockknee. You have a great future decoding doublespeak or, dare I say, NewLabourSpeak as instigated by Mandelbaum. As one who has just had a letter from the taxation nazis to cut my Army pension by 500 quid a month to pay for these freebie renters. long may you continue.
  6. "deposit being payable over a couple of months"


    How does that work?
