Revenge Eviction or was the landlord right?

I have read the first paragraph.
You should have had a good look round and upon seeing the "piddly fan" as you put it, not moved in.
You have no right to moan about landlords.... Read More

Council Empty Property Strategy

It seems rather unfair that property details may be passed on for such a reason. Whatever the reason an owner leaves a property unsused , it is their business. Not the council's nor a private person / organisation. Such a process leaves owner's open to harassment (or perhaps just pain in the ****) by anonymous reporting.... Read More

Licensing Consultation in Southwark

Thanks for your reply John. It was quite a measured one. I do however disagree that any of your personal information was put on here. I leave readers to decide upon that if they are so inclined. Certainly no information not already in the public domain was put on here. Still, it strikes me that your post just above is professional and measured.

"Confrontational" was clearly given as a characterisation of some of your posts. (Accurate or otherwise.) It was also an attempt to keep language mild. Linking it to disclosing personal info was therefore innaccurate.

The task to bring in a licensing arrangement / consultation may or may mot be a good idea. I would have expected an elected official to take the approach / make some of the arguments you have on these pages, rather than an employee / consultant. I suppose that is really much closer to what I was thinking when using the characterisation "confrontational".

As to the original topic, it seems an additional and selective licensing arrangement (details to be decided) is a foregone conclusion. Are you able to confirm that an additional / selective licensing arrangement may or may not happen? I am not against this, it would just be better if all parties invloved in renting were licensable / treated the same.... Read More

Licensing Consultation in Southwark

Hi John
Your response seems confrontational as do several of your comments on here.
From a council consultant this seems inappropriate.

You are hired as a consultant to the council to bring in a licensing scheme.
This is public information yet you seek to hide it with confrontational comments.
One wonders if failure to bring in the scheme is failure of the consulting agreement.
That may or may not explain your approach to perfectly reasonable comments.

These are questions we are entitled to ponder given Southwark Council is a body using public funds.... Read More
