This blog encourages comments, and if you have thoughts or questions about any of the posts here, I hope you will add your comments.
However in order to prevent spam and inappropriate content, all comments are moderated by me. These are the rules I use when deciding whether to delete a comment or not.
1. Any comments which are not relevant to the main post, or to one of the earlier comments on the same post, will be deleted.
2. A link to your own blog or web-site is fine provided it is in context or is given as part of a genuine comment, for example by way of identifying the author. Blatant advertising however will be deleted.
3. I will sometimes give brief answers to/comment on peoples problems, but I do not guarantee to do this, and any answers given are on the basis that no liability is accepted. It is up to you to check and confirm my comment with your own lawyer. Please see also the disclaimer in the blue footer below.
4. However any questions asked must be relevant to the post. Wholly irrelevant questions (however interesting they may be in themselves) will be deleted.
5. I will also delete any comments which I consider will or might be offensive to readers, or which could contravene any libel or other relevant legislation
6. And very long comments will not normally be published, as the comments section is not the place for long essays and articles, but for discussion about the post.
7. Also please note that Landlord Law is not the place for extensive discussions about your own situation or problems. Whether or not I publish a readers question about their own situation and make suggestions to them is entirely in my discretion.
However, please don’t let all this put you off. I know that most of you are genuine people, not spammers or marketeers. If you have something to say about one of the posts, a comment on the law, a question about the subject matter of the post, or indeed a comment on one of the previous comments, I would love to hear from you.
Note that comments will close after 91 days / three months (which means that the comments box will disappear and you will not be able to submit one). However if you want to say something about one of my older posts, you will usually be able to find a more recent post on the same subject.
PS If you would like a little picture of yourself to appear beside your comments, instead of the Landlord Law Blog house logo, then hop on over to www.gravatar.com where you need to register and and upload a picture. You then have a ‘globally recognised avatar’ which will show up on lots of blogs, not just ours, so it is worth doing.
