    This Forum's purpose- please do not misuse

    This "Users" Forum is now available for all LZ members to use.

    However, it will be more severly moderated than the others. It is only intended for users to post about (and to discuss) forum use and technical aspects of LandlordZONE as a whole.

    Any non-compliant material will be deleted or moved elsewhere without notice.

    Editor/Moderator-originated posts will be 'sticky' (given precedence on the newest page of the threads listing).

    Moderating posts in this Forum

    New threads by many inexperienced LandlordZONE members are often mistakenly posted in How to Use these Forums.

    To avoid the need for corrective posts asking that they be re-submitted to the correct Forum, a new procedure is now in operation. All posts here, no matter from whom, will be Moderated. They will not appear on screen unless and until approved by LZ. This procedure has been modelled on other larger websites (for example, those of the BBC) and will, it is hoped, ensure that new threads are correctly placed.

    This procedure applies only to How to Use these Forums.

        Please bring back the original, friendly little 'rolleyes' emoticon. In fact, I would like to suggest that LLZ bins the current set of feeble-looking emoticons which are virtually indistinguishable from one another. Other forums have much better ones - we need to compete!

            Time for change
            Hi all. I have read so many things about landlords suffering at the hands of tenants, and how the system stinks,yet I haven't managed to come across anything where we are fighting back. I myself have suffered some nightmare tenants, and imagine it only to get worse. So could we not all stand together...

            It just appears to me that decent tenants and decent landlords get screwed over. Yet anyone who is a nightmare seems to get away with it. Where is the middle ground. I get what you are saying, MPs are useless,and the system is only interested in getting more money for themselves,but surely thing's only...

            Hi,

            I need some advice regarding my friend who is a buy to let landlord having 4 properties in UK. He wants to sub-let to his own Limited company which he is planning to set up. Is this possible? What are the pros and cons to this? Please can someone share some knowledge on this? ...

            Are you his financial adviser, solicitor, letting agent? Why can't/won't he ask this simple question himself?

            Being a Landlord is on par with being a social pariah, I hardly ever mention to anyone that I own a second property that I let.
            Make sure you understand the laws and regulations to protect yourself, find a good support group and ideally try to get accredited. It's quite cheap nowdays and it's...

            Because muddy water is best left to clear by leaving it alone. And because you can't fight idiots who don't care about facts and about evidence.

            Don't argue for landlords- argue for tenants - for the right of decent civilised tenants to be able to find cost-effective flexible accommodation...

            Wrote a post response with a link to an old thread within this forum and posted fine. Realised I linked to the thread rather than the specific post, so edited and corrected the link by removing the existing and reinserting the correct link. So still just the one link, and it's a link to another forum...

            Of course I don't blame the moderators. I posted here partly to vent sure, but also partly to see if the admin / operator of the forum can either relax it a bit or put in more fine grain spam control to not catch innocent posts while still keeping the spam out.
