The UK & Ireland's WORST Rip-off Houses...

  • Published on Jul 29, 2021
  • I decided to move on from London's worst apartments and broaden my horizons to the WHOLE of the UK & Ireland, to see what absolute mess that is on offer to everyone who could afford to pay a mortgage but can't afford a deposit, so instead we pay off someone else's mortgage + profit. Nice.

    You can tell how much class someone has by looking at their hat. Ciarán has very high class.

      A 3 bed house where I live in the U.S is around $1800 a month, little more but never less than 1k unless you have roommates

    There was an ad that went viral in Ireland where the person was advertising for someone to sleep on the other side of the double bed.

    • It's Maria Lifestyle
      It's Maria Lifestyle 9 months ago +2

      Everyday room sharing accomodation solutions in London. Landlords don't remove their double bed so you have no choice but to accept it and share it with strangers. Had colleagues who did that to be able to pay the rent. Both were boys btw and not into each other or anything 😅

    Love to see your reaction to the rent prices here in California … my fiancé and I are currently paying $3,100 a month … and we’ve had plumbers here for the past week trying to fix the pipe that exploded in our ceiling and flooded everything. And that’s not all … we’re surrounded by raging wildfires atm and it’s been 110° for over a month. 🙃 But it’s fine. Everything’s FINE.

    I really love these videos! I think it would be good to compare properties in different areas, for example, compare a £300pcm property in London and compare it to a £300pcm property in a smaller town

      Nah 300 too low, say 400-500, you can defo get good places at that price at that cheaper end

    Not too different from where I live. This flat constantly has mold growing on our items and furniture, had to take up the carpets cause they all went black. Council blames the tenants and their "life style", for their shody architecture, been trying to get out for over 10 years to no avail.

    Hi Ciaran, swede here 👋 our prisons are indeed really nice; they’re nicer than most US college dorms i’ve seen (cleaner too). they even get to have a tv in their rooms, desk lamps, fans, curtains, a lot of normal personal stuff, and i’ve always thought the beds look quite comfy too with real pillows and bed sheets and stuff. so yeah, way better than pretty much anything you show us in these videos 😂

    09:48 That is called the Bernoulli effect, where the water from the shower head causes air around the stream to move in the same direction. This creates a negative pressure between the water stream and the shower curtain , drawing the shower curtain in towards you in the shower.

    The location of the 1st 900euro a month place isn't even that great. It's seen as somewhat "rough" so that just goes to show you how SHITE the Irish renting crisis is. The price of a 1 bed apartment near me is 1450 a month and I live an hour and a half bus journey to Dublin City Centre...
