    Video record meter readings

    I had a new tenancy start last week. Of course I need to be able to prove that the smoke alarm was present and working at the start, so I video recorded that day's newspaper at the start of the recording before testing the alarm. Then, I thought I might as well video the meter readings as well. This is a modern meter where you cycle through the readings by pressing a blue button. I just noticed on the recording, that one of the readings was the date, so I did not even need the newspaper.

    Of course the date on the meter precludes any claim by a tenant that you came in with an old paper while they were out, and staged the filming. Handy, eh?

    was it the Sunday Sport newspaper by any chance?

    Hope you've done a proper reference check. Lot of weirdo's out there


      I think if I was a Sport reader, I'd go and buy a Telegraph that day, lest the judge look down on me.

        I'm wondering how many of you voted for brexit and would you change your mind if you had the chance ? . I didn't vote and I still wouldn't be sure if I would choose leave or remain if we had another chance...

        Perhaps, but I doubt that there will be any significant change.
        It's likely that more goods from other parts of the world will come directly from other parts of the world, rather than via Europe, but we already receive goods from all over the world and it is unlikely that there will be a huge...

        Dover and Folkestone will continue to be the busiest ferry ports because it is the shortest crossing to the continent, and therefore the cheapest crossing. That isn't going to change.
        Other ferry crossings are already available, if there was more demand for these crossings there would already...

        Which was actually very handy, because Ramsgate harbour wasn't deep enough to take the ones they planned to use.

        I bet you guys know what I mean by pilot error.

        It's when your tenant calls you out saying something is faulty when they don't know how to use it. Today the lady who couldn't open her Washer Dryer a couple of months ago called to tell me that the heater in her spare room wasn't working....

        I do. However he was desperate for somewhere to live, and I had my hands full with another flat, so did not want two vacant ones.

        My friend just visited me at home, and tells me he took his old 2nd hand fridge freezer over to my flat. There's nowhere for it to go in the kitchen, and actually...
