Landlord's 'Thank You' Bonus To Seven Students Leaves Them Speechless

A landlord has stunned students after he gave back their deposits with a 'thank you' bonus for looking after his property.

John, from Falham Properties, told the star tenants to 'buy something nice' now the shops had reopened after lockdown, giving all seven of the tenants living in his Leeds property an extra £50 ($60) back.

Tenant Maisie Gardner, 22, was so touched by the gesture she shared the news on Twitter.

The University of Leeds students had lived in the house for three years while completing their degrees and were getting ready to go back home.

Maisie, a psychology student, was expecting to get her £250 ($308) deposit back but was left in shock when John messaged her saying she would be getting £300 ($370) back instead.

In a screenshot, stating 'A nice student landlord !!! Love you John' the post reads: "As a thank you, I have added a small bonus of £50 to each of your deposits making it £300 and now the shops are opening again I hope you'll be able to buy yourself something nice." What a LAD.

John, who did not want to be named in full, said he is overwhelmed by the reaction Maisie's tweet has gained.

He said: "I'm the sort of landlord that looks after his houses and I keep them very well maintained, they have respected that.

"They deserve a little bit of a bonus. I can say thank you in a text or in an email but thought I should give them something now that the shops are opening again.

"I wish them well in the future. If they carry on how they did in my house they will be fine people."

Maisie, from Manchester, said: "We lived at the house for three years and it was really nice, we never had any problems if we did John did everything he could to fix it.

"I'm just amazed by the amount of likes the tweet has got. Even though people are replying with negative comments about their experience with landlords, it's important for people to be aware that there are good landlords too."

In a later post, she added: "Seeing some tweets about landlords and how they treat their tenants is a joke! This is real, me and my housemates lived in his property in Leeds for 3 years and without any issues really so I feel lucky."
