There is so much doom and gloom going on that I have to inform you all that I have made a conscious decision a couple of weeks ago to stop listening to the news...
 
Now I have to admit that I haven’t managed this 100% yet, but I have certainly restricted my time listening to it to a minimum and feel much happier for it! Whilst I appreciate that this might make me a lot less interesting as a person being clued up as I am (or like to think I am) about most things, it certainly is a step in the right direction so that I have less to worry about.

Sajid Javid, he’s the Communities secretary by the way, has announced this week in the Conservatory party conference that all Letting agents in the country are to be registered and regulated under new legislation soon to be introduced. I certainly feel that this is a good thing.

Hi everyone, 

Ok, so I know that the headline may not mean much to you but please bear with me for a few minutes as if you are, have been, or are thinking of becoming a client of ours, then there is a change happening within the industry that will almost certainly prove to be of relevance to you either now or in the future.

Purplebricks last Wednesday night on prime time TV rejected claims that it has led vendors 'up the garden path'. On the Watchdog programme on BBC1, one seller complained that their Local Property Expert was in fact based 30 miles away. Another complained that the Purplebricks advert on TV said it would “'old her hand', but it had not. The vendor went on to sell through a high street agent. Other parts of Watchdog focused on how sellers who deferred payment have to sign up to a credit agreement with Close Brothers, saying they had not been warned about this.

I sometimes lose the will to live, again, when I hear that Nottingham City Council are applying to the Government for permission to set up yet another TAX on landlords…what the hell is going on and when will all this stop?
