Well I have finally done it. The Landlord Law Blog has finally been moved to a new host.
It was in 2009 that it came off blogger and became a WordPress blog. It didn’t seem worth putting it on an expensive host at that time.
Since then though I have been doing one or two posts a day at least five times a week, and it has become MASSIVE.
A huge great fat bloated thing, stuffed full of image files and maunderings from me – no wonder it kept going offline.
So we moved it. Not without quite a bit of bother. Mainly because the blog was so HUGE that we couldn’t move all the files over properly ourselves and had to get UK Fast* (the hosting company) to do it for us.
Bless them, they helped with a few other techie things too, and now hopefully with a bit more space to breathe, the blog will start behaving itself.
But what else happened this week on the blog?
The second post in my ‘bigger picture’ series, this time looking in more detail at the Cambridge Centre for Housing and Research report which inspired it all. Things they are a changing – find out why here …
A blog clinic post this which has attracted quite a few insightful comments. take a look at them here ..
Something I have been saying for a while but the first time I have really written about it. Most tenancy agreements are not fit for purpose – find out why here …
No post today – we were still wrestling with the site move.
For a while I wasn’t sure if there was going to be a post on Friday either. Then magically the problems were sorted, and so I hastily put up
Ben on top form, wittering on about mayoral chains, letting agents, a bit of kitchen cleaning activity and of course the inevitable Shapps on beds in sheds. Be entertained here …
Another blog clinic question. A tenant has moved out and wants to move back in again. See why here …
- A post from Landlord Today which seems to be saying that the success rates of landlords v. tenants in deposit adjudications varies depending on what tenancy deposit scheme you are using
- A property 118 post about tenants changing utility suppliers and the problems it can cause
- An interesting post on the UK Human Rights blog on democracy and the courts
- Then if you want a bit of inspiration, I enjoyed watching this you tube video of Eden Project’s Tim Smit speaking to the IMB ‘Smarter Business for a Sustainable Future’ summit. I like Tim Smit.
