Thanks. I know that it was my previous landlord's fault, but I still said sorry to the poor little thing when I went to collect his body at the vets.
Hi Brian, Thanks for the update. Very sorry to hear about your poor cat. Are you going to stay put or plan to move in a year? I hope your horrid landlord doesn't get the price he hoped for on his house, after all the stress he caused you both. Melly1 Thanks, what made it worse is I could have gone ...
Thanks, I hope it goes through so that others are spared the misery of Section 21.

Rent controls are hopeless, they just distort the market. in the end, we all have to live where we can afford to live - ie, not in London! re the like's of Amber Rudd's daughter (agree not on this planet if that is what she said) are the scum that occupy council houses/flats even though they are on...
Thanks. Yeah, I can't see this government introducing rent controls: they all look too smug to even know what renting is like. Amber Rudd's daughter even complained about having to live rent free in a £3m apartment in West London. What planet are they on?
