Council - Do as I say not as I do?

Should Landlords wear body cameras?

Gosh this seams a bit alarmist. If I was a tenant I wouldn't think it very likely a landlord is ever going to pay for anything not agreed in writing.

Just sold one of my 3 BTLs. Phew that's one less liability now that government has declared war on private BTL landlords. Unfortunately that is one less property to add to the tenant pool. For those interested sold to a divorcee. So no it hasn't increased supply for any first time buyer either... Read More
