Landlord Law Blog Roundup from 14 October

trainingI should have done this roundup yesterday, but you know how it is!  There is always some project to do.

At the moment it is drafting up my notes for some training I am doing for solicitors in Nottingham this week.

I’ve decided to use the ‘notes’ feature in powerpoint, which is actually pretty good.

So the handout will be pages with the slide at the top and the notes underneath.  Which will also include space for them to add their own notes during the training.

Tenants property is damaged by the ceiling falling caused by water ingress – not the landlords fault but she owns the upstairs property.  Is she liable to the tenants? David Smith answered this one here …


Landlord and tenant sky dish fiasco

John’s landlord gives him permission to instal a sky dish but the freeholders then make him take it down again.  Has he a claim against his landlord?  See here …


Ben Reeve Lewis Friday Newsround #128

Ben is outraged at stories of London letting agents discriminating against black tenants.  See what else he had to say this week here …
