Brian Cowie, Bangor

1 ★☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆
Landlord rating
Be aware that the Resident Landlord, Brian Cowie, can be very difficult to live with. He came across as congenial and accommodating during initial communication but frequently attempted to micromanage the lodgers and was often passive-aggressive, intimidating, nit-picky, and quick to blame the lodgers for problems. If your lease is an Excluded Occupancy Agreement, understand that it does not afford normal rights to the tenants. The house rules posted in the 8MV Lodgers Facebook group seemed to be subject to change at his discretion, which poses problems since signing the contract means agreeing to fluctuating rules. Dealing with him was tolerable before he moved in with the lodgers, but having to share a house with this man for almost 5 months was an extremely stressful experience, definitely not something I would have agreed to as he had given the impression that he stays elsewhere during the majority of the year, and unfortunately a situation in which I remained trapped due to the inflexible contract terms. Avoid this landlord!

8 ★★★★★★★★☆☆
Property rating
The house itself seemed to be one of the nicer ones on this block, although it needed more frequent maintenance than was provided, and the regular (albeit very minimal) cleaning service for the common rooms ceased midway through my stay.

9 ★★★★★★★★★☆
Area rating
Area is nice, very close to the university and shops in Upper Bangor. Other students living on this street sometimes create noise and litter.
