Landlord Law Blog roundup from 26 November

winterThe first of December today.  The start of the wind up towards Christmas.  Already my local shop is full of Christmas offers and the butcher is taking orders for turkeys.  Poor things.

Here at Landlord Law Towers we are very excited about the Landlord Law Conference which we are putting together for next year.

I should have more news for  you on this next week.

But what happened on the blog?


Tenant returning to collect possessions left behind question

A blog clinic question from a landlord, unhappy that the tenant moved out and then returned to collect some furniture.  Didn’t that belong to her now?  Read what we had to say about that here …

The new tenant’s dilemma – eat or heat?

I take a look at a new report from Pro Housing Alliance which reveals the shocking news that some tenants can’t afford to both eat and pay to heat their homes.  See what else the report revealed here …


D is for Disrepair

I reach D in the Landlords legal A-Z, which has to be ‘disrepair’.  I take a look at what this means and what landlords are required to do.  Find out more here …


A new tenants movement?

A piece by a new writer on Landlord Law Blog, journalist Samir Jeraj who writes about the burgeoning tenants movement and two organisations, EPTAG in Edinburgh and Digs in Hackney, London.  Find out more here …


Ben Reeve Lewis Friday newsround #86

Ben has been living it up in Liverpool enjoying the total fab four experience (not) but still finds time to tell us about LHA payment direct issues, consider horror stories about green belt land use and wonder about the legality of property guardians.  Read it all here …
