Nottingham council to use landlord review website

Marks Out Of Tenancy is a new landlord and property review website for tenants that can also be used as a resource for local authorities to clamp down on unlicensed properties, undeclared HMOs, properties in disrepair and criminal landlords.

Nottingham City Council’s safer housing service’s strategic housing manager, Paul Greevy, said: “Sometimes the plates come together, and the simplest ideas impact on local authorities from another tangent. In this case to the world of raising standards in the private rented sector.

“The cumulative impacts over time of statutes, accreditation and Licensing are now augmented by what has the potential to be a TripAdvisor for the private rented sector.

“If you’re letting private rented accommodation enjoy that ten star review, for the one star landlord, time for a rethink because your local authority should be in touch.”

Marks Out Of Tenancy description of their services states it “is a community of renters, working together to help everyone have a better renting experience. Every landlord and letting agent review enables a future renter to make better informed decisions.”

This guy did the rounds of the landlord meetings in Bristol a couple of years ago hawking his product. At that time any tenant could leave a review and there was no right to reply for the landlord. When challenged as to the moderation process, the owner claimed it was all done automatically yet a quick search of the reviews revealed that it was peppered with defamation, personal attacks and clearly unsubstantiated nonsense. He was laughed out of the room.

Google "review of ben yarrow" and you will find out loads about what people are saying about him, the owner of marksoutoftenancy. The site hardly gets any reviews from people claiming to be tenants so it's useful to almost no-one but stays littered with lies about landlords. Call the web site on 07907753824 if you get reviewed.
