But what happened on the blog this week?
The first article in my new series, inspired by the fact that a housing related article was the lead on the first page of the Observer last Sunday. Read all about it here …
Looking at a new High Court decision on whether tenants can prevent a landlord building on land reserved for parking. Find out more here …
