    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.

        My statistics for the top 3 breeds, enquiring tenants have in West Yorkshire and can't rent anywhere - Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Rottweiler. German Shepherd.
        I personally don't accept pets but year after year I always get the same enquiries from different people; "he's only a small dog...

        I have had a look at the Act and cannot see anything in the list of "Consumer contract terms which may be regarded as unfair" which obviously applies. An important provision though is the one which says: "A term which has the object or effect of irrevocably binding the consumer to terms...

        Im pretty sure it was added to the unfair terms which comes under the consumer rights act 2015.

        i know the RLA tenancy agreements were changed from no pets to “any request in wiriting for a pet will not be unreasonably refused.” or something along those lines....

        Junker and Barnier haven't made any claims that the Britain needs to be in the EU to eat, breathe and have toilet paper.
        They have only ever pointed out that being in the EU benefits its members (which they would, they believe that being in the EU is better than not being in the EU - and they...

        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....

        Junker and Barnier tell people that Britain needs to be in the EU in order to exist, eat, breathe and have enough toilet paper (oh and to avoid WW3) and you believe them! There really is no answer to anyone that naive, although at least even you admit that the EU has not been responsible for keeping...

        Our government tells people "everything will be fine " - and you believe them! There really is no answer to anyone that naive, although at least even you admit now that we may be without lettuce. My wife's Brexit lettuces are doing very nicely and we'll be able to start eating them soon. We...
