DEAR DEIDRE: WITH mould on the ceiling, a radiator hanging off the wall and a grimy bathroom, my flat is too disgusting to have friends over.
I’m a woman of 22 and have just got my first job after leaving college.
I had to find somewhere quickly and found a pokey bedsit which was at the top of my budget – but at least it was clean.
My landlord showed me a better place first but on moving day, told me that place had gone and he was moving me three doors down.

It’s in a state of disrepair. I swear I saw a cockroach or some insect running under the fridge.
But I can’t afford to move.

As you didn’t move into the flat you wanted, your contract for the other address isn’t valid, so talk to him about a compromise which would suit you both.
