    Terms and Conditions of Use of this Forum

    The conditions are not easy to find and so I thought it would be helpful to paste them here with a link to the source.

      This really isn't meant to be offensive, and I hope I don't provoke PMS, but I honestly don't understand the point to his postings. What is he trying to contribute?

      In fact, I'm not really clear why he changed his mind about his declared intention of abandoning this message board.

      Does he feel that anyone should be gaining something of value from his postings?

        Who enforces these terms and conditions? Does someone have the power to ban an individual from the forum? If so....

          Harry you are not provoking me in anyway( and what makes you think im a he).I came on this board for one reason and that was to create a balance from what is a very one-sided board.Like everyone else I am entitled to express an opinion but obviously some of them don't go down with some of the self centred bigots on this board.I've been in housing for many years so I have a very broad range of opinions and experience but because many of the posters and senior members on this board are in their own little worlds opinions and advice mean nothing.I hope that has answered your post.

            This is a thread intended to help and advise participants concerning the controls (or lack of control) on this board.

            In these circumstances I would not expect such an unprofessional comment to be made by an alleged member of the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health.

            On some forums a thread such as this would be made a "sticky"

            Firstly I question your statement that this "is a very one-sided board". I have seen excellent posts here advising tenants of the correct action to take when faced with problem landlords. Equally I have seen similar support to landlords in difficulty with tenants.

            Some of that advice has been given by professional lawyers.

            With specialist experience in health education and a member of the relevant professional bodies I deplore your use of the the offensive term "self centred bigots" to describe members of this forum whose views do not coincide with yours.

                For god's sake will you people get a grip and stop poisoning this otherwise informative forum ?

                If you can't say anything politely and respectfuly then just shut up !

                  Jennifer - I so agree with you. PMS from his ranting posts sounds like the worst of bigots. Anyone who does not bow down before him is taken to task for having an opinion. If he/she is in housing, god help anyone who has to deal with it! This will of course produce another post. Please go away PMS so we can get back to our balanced, generally polite, helpful forum, and not have to read your impolite, unhelpful posts. Who else agrees?

                    Here Here! I certainly do. For somebody who claims to have so many professions under his/her belt, I have never heard such illiterate hogwash before.

                      Perhaps the easiest course to take will be if you all simply ignore the posts that you do not wish to read or comment upon. In this way, once it has become apparent that deliberate baiting is going to be ignored, it will soon disappear.
                      For the avoidance of doubt, I am not a solicitor nor a specialist. I have simply spent many years in the business and am expressing my opinions. I would urge caution to any individual using these forums as a sole basis for decision without first speaking to a solicitor.

                        Personally, If I'd left home (rented or otherwise) without notifying anyone and came back to find someone honestly thought I was suicidal to the point they had asked the police to force entry, which I can't imagine is the sort of thing they do lightly, I'd feel thoroughly embarrassed and, assuming the...

                        Apologies if something similar has already been covered elsewhere. I did try to search but couldn't find anything that matched my situation particularly closely. A huge thanks in advance to any of you who do take the time to read and advise.

                        It's a loss to the landlord arising while the tenant was responsible for the property.
                        It's not necessary for them to have caused the damage themselves or been negligent in any way.

                        The tenant should try and recover the cost from the police (although they might as well not bother...

                        I don't think this is possible and I don't think I would want a tenant who is so short of cash they can't stump up the deposit.

                        The lifetime deposit has got to include some sort of insurance to cover the short fall & the details have not been worked out yet. Bottom line is - its going...

                        I’m currently looking for a new tenant (not using an agent). Something a prospective tenant has mentioned is the deposit being transferred from their current tenancy to their new one via the DPS.

                        Has anyone had experience of this working in practice, I’ve read online about the concept...

                        Tenant not responsible if police damage the door in my opinion. The tenant didn’t do it why should he pay?

                        If the tenancy ended tomorrow, the damage would be claimed from the tenant.

                        They're responsible for what happens in the property while they're living there - just as an owner would be responsible, if the same thing happened to them....

                        OK.

                        But where do I stand legally?

                        If tenants agree to leave as per email, but they don't actually leave, meanwhile new tenant is due to move in. Can I claim all costs, including new tenants claims from me, from existing tenants?
