Best practice for LANDLORDS (e-news compilation)

If in doubt ASK

Learning from other peoples experiences is often far more cost effective than making mistakes of your own! Advice on forums is no substitute for professional advice because comments and opinions are not insured.

HOWEVER, discussion can lead to ideas which you may not have previously considered and can often point you in the right direction, even if only to point you to the right person, piece of legislation or to find out how others have dealt with similar issues.

Member Profiles

We have had some excellent suggestions about the option we created last month for readers to create member profiles. We have now introduced a premium upgrade for businesses which would like to promote their products and services to Property118 readers in a subtle way. Don’t worry, we are still not allowing advertising!

Member Profiles remain FREE to set up and as all comments left in discussion threads link back to member profiles we see no reason not to allow businesses to add their company logo, telephone number, email address and a link to their website to their member profiles should they wish to do so. This should also encourage more businesses to engage in discussions and to help other readers as it will give them more exposure to their member profile. Everybody is a winner! see members
