    Out of date and sticky thread

    There's a locked sticky thread in the Residential Letting Questions thread - Housing Act 1988 (as amended) for reference

    https://forums.landlordzone.co.uk/fo...-for-reference

    It's hopelessly out of date and now doesn't reflect the actual legislation in some key areas - particularly s21.

    Now the government's legislation pages are available (albeit usually slightly out of date) is this really neccessary?

    Thanks to whoever hid this!

      Just me, not hiden, just un-stickied, so it dropped down the thread list to the date of its last update.
      I also post as Mars_Mug when not moderating

          May I suggest a more balanced approach toward landlords as opposed to landlordzone's tenant-centric views it promotes through its regular members? I've noticed the forum tends to support members who defend tenants and look down on landlords as a general rule, and vice versa. It would be of great help...

          It would be very difficult to control the bias of the forum in any practical way, and it’s not something LLZ was set up to do. I don’t believe there is a general problem even though some might be able to point to specific threads where questionable advice has been given.

          I would also...

          Every landlord experience is a free lesson for other landlords.
          I've learned a huge amount from other landlord's cock ups (many of which I was also guilty of).

          Remember that many "good" landlords LOVE the bizarre and convoluted legislation that hammers both tenants and landlords. The more bizarre, convoluted, damaging, time consuming and costly the better. Especially loved by large landlords or agency-landlords with large portfolios who can deal...

          This is a very good point, and one which we also raise frequently on a disability/benefits forum where I'm a regular.

          When things are going right people don't need to look for advice, and have no need to ask questions on a forum.

          So you only see the stories where things have...

          Anyone can sign up and post here.
          If the advice on the forum seems biased in favour of tenants, it would be possible for someone to offer a balancing opinion.

          The operators of this forum don't have much ability to set a forum policy as such.

          People who come to the forums...

          For real?

          You would prefer to only see one side of things.

          I see mostly landlords as regular members here, with a sprinkling of tenant regular members to give a different viewpoint.
          As well as some who have been both - and maybe still are both at the same time.
