Landlord Law Blog roundup from 17 June

brightwindowcoffeeThe big story this week was the Superstrike case, with numerous writings reflecting nationwide anxiety from landlords on its potential effect.

As well as looking into this, I also set up the new Landlord Law Shop with its first book and audio.

I have also freshened up my Landlord Law new members information with one of those three column pages which may help to make things clearer for people.
