In our first edition of the New Year Ben Reeve-Lewis highlights how minor criminal convictions can invalidate landlords insurance, discusses how the Localism Act should help to improve the Tenancy Deposits Scheme and delves in to the complex world of issuing Section 21s in ‘Don’t shoot the messenger – part 8′.

The Property Maverick looks at understanding the property cycle and offers invaluable knowledge to help make the right decisions at the right time.

Mark Alexander had added two new articles to his Landlord’s Log and opens up a debate on what is the best floor covering for bathrooms, kitchens and hallways and asks if anyone has purchased Robert Kiyosaki’s, author of ‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad’, software based version of his Cashflow Quadrant game and what they think of it.

This weeks news headlines cover the great landlord receipt rip-off, rescue scheme companies shutdown, brokers slammed for bridging loan abuse and estate agents predicting house prices will drop in 2012.

From everyone at we would like to take this opportunity to wish you a very happy and prosperous New Year.
