About Me

Bit of a grumpy old man these days, with a special interest in property.

my expertise in the industry

Spent my formative years in the industry and dabbled with property investment when I was younger (unsuccessfully, I should add). Disillusioned with much of what estate agency stands for these days - so trying (in my own small way) to change that. Again, unsuccessfully.

@Ray Evans - I thought I was the cynical one. It doesn't sound too good to be true, it just sounds like a sensible measure that should have been introduced a long time ago, across the board, all over Britain. Maybe then we wouldn't hear about so many landlords mistreating their tenants or making them live in barely inhabitable hovels. We read about a new case nearly every day on LAT and Landlord Today. But oh no, the landlords won't have that. It's always the fault of the pesky, good for nothing tenants, don't you know. 1. I think you're being too harsh on local councils in Wales, Ray. 2. No more than the cost of a court case or the fine a rogue landlord who's slipped through the net will have to pay for failing to provide heating or enough ventilation. And it's a small cost to pay if tenant safety isn't subsequently put at risk. 3. It will stop, or at least put another barrier in the way of, rogue landlords. And there are plenty of them, no matter how hard some try to deny it. It will improve the standard and condition of rental properties because landlords know they won't be able to get away with providing sub-standard accommodation. The safety of tenants goes up as does their security and satisfaction levels. 4. Legislation that is not being enforced is pointless. Even enforce it, or bring something new in to change it. We can't just sit on our laurels and go, "well, there's already loads of legislation in place, but we're just too lazy to do anything about it. It's too much effort, you know." Change things so it is enforced, don't just stick with the status quo because there is already malfunctioning, outdated legislation in place. 5. No, they're not.
