On a roll! £1200 rent saving

Hi I am a new member and on a roll to save money!

This week I have managed to bargain with my landlord and knock him down a £100 a month! Thats a saving of £1200 a year. I did this by explaining that I was thinking of moving, but if he was to re think the rent I would reconsider. I pointed out that it might take him some time to rent the place and the cost in advertising. It was like taking sweets from a baby!

I am not on a roll and looking for other big money saving ideas! watch out!!!

    Just make sure he can still pay the mortgage and you don't end up being evicted by the mortgage lender :(

    Well done though. If you don't ask, you don't get :)

    Is he a big property person? Because it feels kind of wrong really :(
