6 week DPS backlog now entering its 24th week

Hi Onslow, where are you based? DPS operates out of Bristol which is an area covered by our landlord association. This seems an exceptional case and so on this occasion and in the interest of all landlords, I would be happy to try and get this resolved for you with a face to face meeting with DPS. DPS has a formal complaints process have you followed this? With over 400 members in the Bristol area I doubt I will be ignored. It would be better if you could attend, we can then talk specifics.

Landlords Union Slams BBC Panorama Report

It was a very shallow report, biased in favour of the tenant. I was sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for validated detail and background behind the evictions but disappointingly (but not unexpected) nothing came. Panorama presented a biased, under researched and amateurish program not befitting the factual programs that I once respected.... Read More
