April Fool delights – the top landlord jokes of all Time

This week the team at City Rental Services have decided to celebrate April Fool’s Day by scouring the internet to find the very best landlord jokes out there – and sharing them with our letting-only landlord Bristol readers.

So, in no particular order, here’s the best landlord jokes on the internet which made our team chuckle in the office – we hope you like them too!

If you dropped a slug and a landlord off the Clifton Suspension Bridge, which one would hit the ground first? Who cares!

What do you get if you cross a landlord with a weasel? No change whatsoever!

What do you have if you see a landlord buried neck-deep in concrete? A good start!

What do landlords do for fun? I don’t know, I haven’t seen mine in months!

What’s the definition of a perfect tenant? One who the landlord doesn’t know what your name is!

A housewife called up a pet store and said “Send me 30,000 cockroaches”. “What in the world do you want with 30,000 cockroaches?” asked the pet store owner. “I’m moving out of my flat in Bristol today, and I want to leave it exactly as I found it for the landlord,” she answered.

Some fantastic April Fool’s Day landlord jokes – but rest assured, they do not relate to any of our property landlords who are all well-trained, and care about their tenants!

Will the Government’s Help to Buy scheme keep Bristol’s property sector moving?

We came across an interesting article at City Rental Services from the BBC this week, highlighting the latest developments in the Government’s Help to Buy property scheme.

With a shortage of rental properties in Bristol at the moment, the new scheme could help alleviate the pressure on property in the city by helping first-time buyers to move from a rented property into their first home of their own.

Help to buy equity loans are open to both first-time buyers and home movers on new-build homes worth up to £600,000 but you won’t be able to sub-let, so this is not an easy route for investors.


This injection of new mortgage lending should help to keep the property sector moving through Autumn and Winter and into 2014: and hopefully release some much-needed rental property in Bristol in the New Year, as the market starts to work more freely – but hopefully not over-inflate it.

The demand for rented accommodation in Bristol and especially in BS7 has never been stronger, so if you are struggling to let a property or understand the property market in any way, why not call in and chat to one of our Letting Negotiators or Property Managers.
