      One possibility is via details from HMLR.

      1. Public advice is believed accurate, but I accept no legal responsibility except to direct-paying private clients.
      2. Telephone advice: see http://www.landlordzone.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=34638.
      3. For paid advice about conveyancing/leaseholds/L&T, contact me* and become a private client.

        Practically impossible. Many student LLs live miles away from their properties and leave everythingto their agents. Even if you managed to get hold of them (e.g. by asking the current tenants for their contact details), they would not know how to produce a contract if their life depended on it. Most of them have owned the properties for yonks, no mortgage, the rent is pure profit and they don't mind paying the agents. Sorting the Ts out themselves is too much like hard work for them.

        Some Universities put students in touch with LLs for free, but not until about February when all the best properties have been taken by Christmas.
