    Unconscious humour from posters

    It seems to me there is a lot of unconscious humour here, the latest one for me is...........

    Hi. The S.21 is not valid for a number of reasons. I would be willing to sign a new AST with the prospective buyer. I suppose they are just an unknown quandary at the moment.
    Of course I know what he means but his brain seems to be running faster than his typing

    Can I suggest that we post them here when we spot them.

    Could the guy be using type-talk? I get the impression one or two prolific posters on here do, when they come up with similar mistakes.

      Sorry, I dunno what type-talk is. Is it for blind people?

      I do know one completely blind man that has his computer read his emails aloud to him, he has the speech running so fast that I cannot understand a word of it. His typing skills are phenomenal as well.

        I may have used the wrong term, but I meant a program that types what is said into a microphone.

              Here's one I enjoyed today:

              "Forget the advice about needing a "reasonable" amount of time to look at the contract, and have it looked by a third party. It's a phallacy."

                  Although it certainly wasn't a laughing matter for the OP in another thread about LL not doing repairs, the 'leek in the bedroom' which brought the ceiling down made me smile. Must have been some leek.

                  I also liked the idea of a 'Signed Afadavid'. (What you do with the other afa the david wasn't made clear).

                    I think threads like this work best if the person making the mistake is not identified.

                      You can find many bad apples, but their is more good agents than rouge ones.
                      Priceless!!!

                      (Apart from the "interesting" Ingerlish/grammar/syntax..) I've this image of some regency dandy with rouged cheeks sitting in his wee letting agency waiting for that wonderful, hoped for, perfect tenant/landlord to walk through yon door..

                      Alternatively the poster may be referring to a particularly remarkable exemplar of "Cox's Orange Pippin.."

                      Cheers!

                          I was doing some voluntary work for a group trying to transfer off the council to a self managing organisation.

                          A scruffy dishevelled and smelly individual with a brillo pad beard joined meeting and no one knew where he lived, so the chair took him to one side to offer some help.

                          He replied that he was the council's housing officer.... !
                          Based on the information posted, I offer my thoughts.Any action you then take is your liability. While commending individual effort, there is no substitute for a thorough review of documents and facts by paid for professional advisers.

                            As a conveyancing solicitor I believe the information given in the post to be useful (provided it relates to property in England & Wales) but I accept no liability except to fee-paying clients.

                              From one of today's threads:

                              Any chance of claiming any damages from the landlord? My furniture and other staff now smells and the whole house will need a thorough cleaning.

                              I told him to make sure the staff take a shower and change their clothes.

                                As a struggling LL, I am on Tax Credits, not a lot but every bit counts. Eventually I'll be on UC and as a self employed person will be subject to the Minimum Income Floor (MIF). If a tenant pays early (and some do) or late (and many do) it will affect my MIF and therefore my UC entitlement.

                                If you are found to not be gainfully SE then you can still carry on your SE and claim UC without coming under the MIF, so that's another way people are getting around it.

                                I've never used a spray paint. I thought that spray paint for rads must be toptastic. I protected the area around the area in a small bathroom. should be good. Did about 6 small spray layers to prevent runs. Rad look fab. Proud of myself . Removes area protection...... Oh fab rad.... yikes.... the...

                                All is perfect now thanks. I had to scrubby the floor twice and it didn't take long. But I won't be using spray again! Does anyone want half a can of white radiator spray paint?...

                                use it all the time - remove the radiator, sheet out the garage and spray there. I never do it with the radiators in the room as the paint goes everywhere (you dont see it on the windows until the sun shines through).

                                DONT spray radiators outside unless you really like fly-pattern finishes...

                                I have had great results with the sprays. Used massive (15 foot by 15 foot) plastic sheeting to protect though.

                                You guys may remember I am presently re-tiling the bathroom of my first Reading rental flat which fell vacant in Feb. Since I got the place cleaned up, I have had to replace a shower head, a window handle, the hob, the dishwasher, the worktop, the bathroom boxing, and for good measure the bathroom plasterboard....
