Maidstone desperate for landlords with one-bed flats or studios

No. No. No. Another desperate con trick to snare unsuspecting landlords. Councils & Gov.uk encouraged by Shelter & co have whipped landlords tirelessly with all the unjust fines / licensing / tax hits / legislation and now want our help!? Maybe now they will start to see the harm rather than good they have done the lowliest tenant class as no landlord can afford to take the risks they used to. Its going to get a lot worse. More homeless - no well meaning caring landlords prepared to help. Told you so.... Read More

£4,000 Legal Claim for Damages - Advice Please

Once you know theres no fear of a claim being held against you. Keep writing with a simple query. Waste their time and money. These parasite solicitors working for parasite clients should be run ragged answering letters and re-contacting their ‘clients’ with queries. Make them work (for nothing).... Read More

Lender says letting out as licenced HMO breaches terms and conditions?

Reply to the comment left by land law at 16/10/2021 - 10:53
My point is that all those can be achieved far more simply. And the system we have now doesn’t necessarily achieve that,(especially courts and councils). Its great business for all the desk based authorities and legal people but an unecesary burden for us and actually a huge barrier to getting people into homes so on balance not good for tenants....

Is anyone else reading this thinking- ‘what a load of unnecessary rubbish’?
How did we get to the state where all this sort of rubbish is normal. The whole country is bogged down with too much of this sort of stuff in all businesses. Lenders / councils / government / courts - all with their own agendas piling on the pain for all of us just doing something simple (or should be).
Isnt it half the reason why this country is in such a mess?... Read More

Step towards a fully digital planning system

Application for permitted development?
No permission required - its ‘Permitted’. (Even though website is riddled with “best ask anyway”.). The rules should be clear and comprehensive from the start - not wishy washy. ‘Probably ok but ask anyway”. Conservation areas in particular - everything is ‘apply just in case’. If the councils enforce laws on us to do or not do certain things, the least they should do is tell us all at the outset what those things are. If the Road Traffic Act said
‘You must be a certain age to drive - usually 17 - but consult your local Police station to ask” - what a nightmare and a few thousand extra Police to consult with. Sometimes I think council planning officers love ‘wish washy’ as that brings in more enquiries and therefore more need for their jobs.
