Gill Dennis, who lives in a 400-year-old home known as the Old House in Wallasey, says people urinate on her house on a regular basis. Ms Dennis, who moved into the house nearly five years ago, said: “My daughter lives directly opposite, she looked over to mine and saw a little boy having a wee by the gate.
“She went over and said, ‘where is your mum and dad?’ and he pointed to a car on the opposite side of the road, and they were just sat there.”
Ms Dennis says the culprits usually come out of a nearby pub, as well as drivers and passers-by.
She told Liverpool Echo: “If they have been to the pub, on the way home they look for a place to pee. The number of times I have opened the door and they are just standing there doing their business.”
Ms Dennis says she bought the house in November 2016 after it had been “renovated beautifully” by its previous owner and, other than the problem with people using her house as a “pee stop”, it is a lovely area.
She believes people should have more respect for her house and is sick of seeing and smelling pee whenever she goes outside.
She added: “I have been tempted to put up a sign saying, ‘please don’t p*** on the gate’. I feel there must be some public sign on the road that I can’t see saying ‘pee stop here’.
“It is a lovely area and I love living in the house itself – but people need to know they can’t pee here.”
