6 weeks backlog at the DPS?

I have used the DPS as a landlord and have found them to be pretty much useless. I resent that if the tenant or the landlord makes the slightest error in the claim then it is dismissed yet the DPS can delay as long as they want without recourse. On an open and shut case such as you describe there is no excuse for the awful delay and there should be a compensation scheme which entitles you to a payment if the DPS are late or make a mistake.

I would be very interested in a scheme like this. The current set up is not fit for purpose. The DPS recently awarded me £30.00 for a cigarette burn in the middle of the lounge carpet. I would prefer they sent me a card with a laughing monkey soundbite inside as this would have been less offensive.
Good luck with the scheme and yes if it can be worked out on the legalities then i am in!!!... Read More

It's a personal Brexit for this landlord!

Very interesting article and i can be in the same situation albeit on a smaller scale.
I have 12 rentals, and wouldn't object in a few years time to living overseas.
I agree 118 is my daily read and i have put several friends onto it.
Jointly there is a massive amount of knowledge with the members of this site and i am interested in the software as well.... Read More
