JUSTICE FOR LANDLORDS!

Dr Rosalind Beck - every time I read a post by you I admire the measured, considered, intelligent remarks you make. As a member of the NRL a I would like to vote for you to be a chief representative for landlords intervening with the government. No other business has kept owners on their toes through constant legislation change that undermines any business plan a landlord might have had.

Also having put wired in smoke alarms in every bedroom (which is over and above legislation) they have said I must get somebody in annually to certificate the smoke alarms are working despite the fact I check them quarterly and tenants have it as part of their responsibility within their ASTs. Nonsense and costly.... Read More
