Max Parish, a 21-year-old politics student living on Hatherley Road, only a short walk from the University said: “We inherited the house in a very poor state and as we come to the end of our tenancy almost nothing has been done improve our standard of living. “As a result it has left us with very little motivation to keep the house in good condition and so our landlord will now have a big job on his hands if he wants to attract any future tenants to the property.”
