For lease indefinitely: Rowland and Lisa’s online engagement

MsJane 21 May 2014

Offering light-hearted views and plenty of potential for growth, this thirty-something year old ‘unit’ is officially off the market.

When Rowland Fischer placed his ad on, his description was carefully worded and aimed at just one special person. Described as being ‘well looked after for the past two years, but now in need of a long term and committed title holder’, the ‘unit’ was advertised as ‘for lease indefinitely’.

Mr Fischer’s plan came to fruition last Friday as the couple picked up the keys to their newly-purchased cottage in the village of Sutton, according to an article in the Canberra Times. On the way to their new home, Mr Fischer brought the ad to his girlfriend’s attention.

Unfortunately for Mr Fischer, Ms Port misread the ad and assumed someone was fraudulently offering their house for rent.

Thinking on his feet (or on one knee), Mr Fischer eventually popped the question out the front of their new home. The answer was yes.
