I was so excited to move into my new home but was stunned to find out the big mistake I made when I met my neighbours | The Sun

MOVING can be quite stressful. 

There’s lots to box and unpack, a lot of moving things around and heavy lifting. 

There is a little thrill in finding a nice spot to call home and making it your very own.

But there is usually at least one unexpected surprise. 

April recently moved into a new flat and found out something very odd when she met her neighbours.

In a video April said: “I can't believe it but I just moved into a retirement home by accident”.

She said: “Basically I moved in yesterday and I needed help moving my TV from my car into my flat. I had no one else with me so I thought I’d knock on my neighbours door.”

April continued: “ I knocked on the first neighbours door and an old lady answered.”

April said: “I said to her hello, I need help moving a TV from my car up to my flat please, but it is heavy so don’t worry about it. Do you know anyone else that can help me?”

“And she said oh the guy next door can help you . So I thought it was great and I knocked next door and an old man answered.”

She said: “As we were pulling the TV out for my car he stops and he said to me ‘You're too young to be moving into a retirement home.’”

April said when she looked for her flat she filtered out retirement homes in her search, the estate agent never said anything about it and it was never in the flat description. 

April concluded: “So I’ve got sweet old people as my neighbours.”

In a follow up video April showed viewers the parts of her flat that are intended for the elderly. 

This includes carpet in the bathroom to prevent slips.

Extra mobility aids at every door. 

 And old fashioned blinds.
