Landlord Law Blog roundup from 4 March

Bury St EdmundsThis is the last weekend before our conference – this time next week it will all be over.

Bookings have now closed so if you want to attend but have not booked your place yet, I’m afraid its too late now (unless we get a cancellation).

However, we will be doing a fair amount of tweeting on the day (using our official hashtag #lllconf) , and Smair will be liveblogging here on Landlord Law Blog, so you will be able to keep up with what is happening.

We may have a couple of announcements on the day too, so watch out for those.

Another common cry I suspect.  Another blog clinic quesiton.  See what I thought about it here …


Is the landlord  responsible for the repair of kitchen white goods?

I was asked a while ago by a loyal Landlord Law Blog reader, if I could take a look at this quesiton as apparently arguments have been raging about it on the landlord forums.  This is my take on the subject here …


Ben Reeve Lewis Friday newsround #98

Ben’s been having a bad week.  Three nasty illegal evictions  at work to deal with, a film crew dogging his every step, and now he finds he will have to wash his own pants come June.  He also had a few things to say about benefits, G15 and empty homes – read it all here …
