Tenant demand accelerating and outstripping falling landlord supply

Hi Jonathan. I am afraid the lack of RGI was not for lack of trying. As Monty has pointed out above, current availability of RGI is like rocking-horse sh*t…! If you could PM me I could look at this for some other tenants potentially……Thanks... Read More

Yes I suppose she was actually guilty of perjury! I remember Jeffrey Archer got 7yrs for that!!! We have lodged all the payment orders and traces etc etc with Landlord action already. Suspect nothing will happen, but you never know….... Read More
