Following on from my 5½ year legal case I have invested in a Body Worn Camera at a cost of £75.00.
I suggest a Body Worn Video is very necessary these days for Landlords. Police Officers have BWV and always say as they arrive “I have my Body Worn Camera switched on is that alright?” Hence I shall say that.
There is “Corroborative Evidence” of what actions or conversations took place.
Very recently I have had a tenant say that I told him to have new carpets fitted throughout the house and I would pay for them! Well I never said anything of the sort! Absolute rubbish! However, we now have the situation of the tenant saying one thing and the landlord something else.
With a BWV there is absolutely no doubt about what was said and it can be relied upon if the matter proceeds to Court.
I have to be particularly concerned about female staff in Letting Agencies I use. There have been threats to staff and a BWV is an essential piece of kit these days in my view.
