Landlord Law Blog roundup from 19 March

Reading booksA good week.  We launched Tom’s new book How to Win Deposit Disputes’ and loads of you went and bought it.

We were particularly pleased to see how many of you bought the Novice Guide / Deposit claim combo, so we have kept that.  If you buy the Deposit book now you can get Novice at a 25% discount.

I have also been setting up the membership software on my School for Landlords site.  Which has been a bit challenging at times, but I think I am getting there.  You can take a look here.

If you have any suggestions for courses and do it yourself guides, let me know.
