As well all know, the landlord is required to provide the property, the tenant needs to pay their rent on time and ideally they must both keep to their countless responsibilities, as stated in the tenancy agreement. However, sometimes things can go a little off track and disputes can undoubtedly arise, which is something that the BBC Radio 4’s Encounters picked up on this week.
In its latest episode, the show features a landlord and tenant with very different views on a difficult subject. The pair come together to see if they can empathise with each other by trading places in order to tell the other person’s story in the first person in an attempt to ‘find common ground’.
