There is a house on waterway road in oxford for rent, across from a horse farm. Please beware of this house and the landlord himself. He is from phoenixville. He rents the house out to tenants with out letting them know that the heater is shot, the fireplace needs fixed as it caught on fire, the electric keeps popping as it needs updated and there is something really wrong with the water. I lived in this home with my family for 10 months and in the winter we froze but was told we werent running the heater right and not to let it go below 62 degrees or the pipes would freeze. Anyone knows they wont freeze until its drops to 32 degrees.

Please just be aware that he will tell you anything just for you to stay there pay the high rent, so he doesnt have to pay the mortgage, have to put fuel in, which in a 4 month period, We ended up paying out over $2000 in fuel, as well as him have to pay someone to cut the grass.

Not counting we put over $2000 of our own money into the home as it was not habitable for anyone and was promised in emails that he would take off the rent which was never done so went to court and finally moved out of that nightmare of a home.

Do not rent from his landlord, He is a scum landlord!!

Here is the listing the landlord is posting on craigslist.

Please please beware he is lying on his posting and I have reported him to craiglist as this house is not worth what he is charging and is far from habitable for anyone.

The pics are from when we lived there in august of this year. He shows the house clean and what not but yet he is trying to take us to court for damages. Ok if there are damages to the house, why wouldnt you state that in your postings?? He is only out for money!!

Do not rent from this guy Matt, If you do you are crazy. He lives in phoenxville and will say anything to get you into the house. If you let him know something is wrong, well plan on waiting for it to get fixed or you fix it yourself. I have over 200 pictures and all emails from 10/15/2012 to now from him, threatening us, promising our money back that we put into the house, so much proof that this house is a scam.

It was our first time renting after we sold our place, worst mistake ever.

It was a life lesson learned!!!
