The Harsh Reality Of A PG Accommodation
A person who is paid to live with you will have patience. These people have to tap into their patience every day and adapt to the new challenges and opportunities that come along.
Paying guests report that one of their biggest problems is being restricted from bringing friends into the room. This rule is more common that you might imagine, and the reasons for it vary from landlord to landlord. While some might argue that noise is a problem or others may restrict entry to girls and boys, this rule can be justified for’moral’ reasons.
These are some of the most common scenarios that you will encounter if you choose to be a guest.
- Living in a small, congested area
Subversive advertising can make you feel disappointed. Sometimes landlords will promote their PG accommodation as larger and more spacious than it actually is. Don’t believe everything you read in an advertisement for guest accommodation.
- Personal Space – Don’t even think about it
When you share your room with paying guests, privacy is a reality. Sometimes, your personal space may be limited to your bed. Do not expect comfort from a home simply because it looks cozy.
You might be under the impression that you can save money on food, since most PG houses provide in-house meals. You will end up spending more if you eat out frequently.
- Living with weird people
There is a good chance that you and your roommate are very different. Your worst nightmare might be your strange roommate, who may have some quirks that can be distracting.
- Restrictions, Restrictions and Restrictions
You might feel more restricted if you are a guest paying for your own accommodation than if you were living at home with your family. For fear of suicide, some of the most bizarre restrictions were not allowing girls to have ceiling fans in their rooms.
However, it is unacceptable for everyone to live under such restrictions. This brings us to Co Living.
