        No, I cannot see any amended version of the question, just the questionnaire itself.

        Please can you explain what it is exactly you are doing for your finals? What are you trying to find out?

          I am doing my dissertation on the residential buy-to-let property market. Investigating 3 hypotheses, 1. did the lack of avaliability of finance provided by mortgage lenders cause the slowdown in the BTL market, has the oversupply of flats in leeds city centre affected the BTL market, and how have new student developments by opal and unite affected the demand for traditional student investment property. My landlords questionnaire has been done to judge what type of properties are most popular, how many properties the average landlord has, what sort of borrowing levels the average landlord has, etc. Hope that answers your questions

            As I am off work ill today, am bored and and have nothing better to do, I will help you out.

            The answers to your questions are:
            1. Yes, obviously
            2. (I have inserted this above since you left it out) Very probably, since the number of students in Leeds has increased over the same period
            3. See answer to 2.

            My consultancy fees may be donated in lieu, to any charity for small fluffy animals.

            I have also completed your survey, (although there is a fundamental methodological flaw in it, which I will let you work out for yourself!)

            Please do not take offence, but unless you write your dissertation with greater regard to clarity and accuracy than you have here, I pity the person who has to mark the thing.

              Many thanks, and thank you for donating your consultancy fees to charity. This is an online forum not my dissertation, and I have rushed this I understand, but no need to be patronising. I have spoke to 4 directors of large development companies in Leeds, all of whom were impressed by what I asked them, and were looking forward to read the findings of my study.

                You seem not to have read what I actually wrote.

                First, the suggestion was that you donate my consultancy fees to charity (in lieu of paying me).

                I did not mean to sound patronising, but please consider the idea that if you want people whom you have never met, to understand what you are asking and to help you by replying, it is pragmatic to express your points clearly and accurately. Using the conventions of standard written English is a good starting point, wouldn't you agree? In fact, if you are an undergraduate and capable of writing clearly and accurately when you choose to (as you suggest you are), then it could be argued that it is actually quite rude to do anything else*. Do we matter less than those CEOs of the 'big development companies', or what? Just because this is a message board, does that mean we should be expected to work harder at deciphering your meaning than the big shots in business whose time is more valuable? (*There are even bits missing from the questions in your survey, which render it confusing).

                Just a thought.

                Good luck with your dissertation.

                  Indeed it does. Plus at least one completely ambiguous question (it won't let me go back in now to check).

                      I think that was a generic website tbh.

                      I was about to defend the OP and say that some of the comments on here were harsh, but having completed the survey I have to say it was a bit - let's be kind - rushed. Question 7 was a lot of fun.

                      It's probably best to spend a little more time on the survey before asking people to fill it in I'd say. Some of the questions didn't make sense, and it could have been written a lot better.

                      Regardless, good luck with your degree.
