''I live in Labone in a two-bedroom self-contained house. Have a small patio. My initial rent was GHc230 for eight years. I presently pay 420 cedis. I pay according to my own terms - so I pay quarterly. My landlady hasn't even been here since I moved in. She sends paint once a year and jokingly says I should find my own painter.''

Kevin Rene Sabali said:

''My landlord has only added an increment of GHc50 since I moved in 2016. They’re very reasonable people.''

Manye Dede commented:

''I lived in an apartment in cantonments for 10 good years. My landlady never increased rent, but my new landlord increases my rent just in a year with 100 cedis flat.''

Kwaku Darko said:

''Not that they are not moved by money, they are disciplined and understand the law. They are meticulous in their dealings. Such people never lose a case, and they keep all the records in their dealings.''
