John McDonnell back-pedals on Right to Buy

We should not fault people for pursuing great wealth. There is nothing wrong with a person trying to make as much money as they honestly can. They should be applauded not punished. Imagine a world where all mankind is equal i.e. exact same income received from the State no matter what job you do & all living in identical homes. There's no running water so family members have to walk on average 3.7 miles and carry 5 gallons every day to bring clean water home to their families. However a particular village member (let's call him Bert) decides to save some of his income & after a few years has enough money to buy tools & pipes to build a water supply network to his house & although it takes up all his spare time to build, he eventually has daily running water to his home. The other village members see this & ask if they can use Bert's network. Bert agrees to this for a small fee. Over time everyone in the village is paying a nominal fee to Bert to get their daily water & Bert becomes a wealthy individual & is now able to buy bricks & tools to extend his home. The other villagers become envious of this & think it unfair that Bert's family has a bigger home than them. The State agrees & decides Bert's wealth should be redistributed to the masses & levies taxes on Bert's fee income & a wealth tax on his property. Over time these taxes increase to the point where Bert feels it's not worth his time & energy in maintaining the water supply network. The State yet again succeeds in turning Bert in to one of the masses. The water supply network is now in disrepair & the State does not have enough money to maintain it. This is how to create a dumb nation by dragging everyone down to the same level!!!... Read More

Nottingham Licensing increased to a whopping £890!

I can't remember if Landlords Alliance is challenging these extortionate fees & licencing in general. Does anyone know?... Read More

Watch out how you describe threatening tenants to the police

This goes to prove that sadly quite a few people of different sex, age, colour or creed have a big chip on the shoulder & automatically assume everything that comes out of your mouth is an insult. Life is so PC nowadays that one dare not say a word in case of being taken the wrong way. Even responding to a direct verbal insult only fuels the ignoramuses in society. I find it is best to smile, walk away & let them stew in their own venom. I had more than my fair share of insults over the years being a young Jewish female who worked in a man's world from the early 1970's. My best ammunition was to do well despite their attempts to derail me.... Read More

Licensing needs to go back to the drawing board

We applied for a Selective Licence on 16th Dec 2018 for one of our properties in Redbridge/Essex & we are still waiting 10 months later for our application to be approved. We chased this twice & on both occasions the reply is "...we do have a large backlog of applications that we are working through in order of submission....so it may be a few months before you receive your draft licence". Elsewhere in Newham/London, we have 2 x 5 year licences now both in their 7th year (renewed the 5 year licences in 2018), yet not one inspection. Therefore it seems our fees are either paying for admin staff to process applications albeit slowly, or to fill their depleted coffers since the credit crunch as I see no evidence of a reduction in rogue landlords in these regions....
