    Change of occupancies can be a legal minefield so some clarification on the best procedure would be helpful.

    I always read any blog irrespective of whether the content is not directly related to lettings. I would like to read more about any ‘top tips’ as a result of routine lettings queries received on the Painsmith helpline.

    Your blog is excellent, I read all the updates. Despite leaving the legal profession I am often asked Landlord and Tenant questions and your blog keeps me up to date on important issues, cases and legislation. The advice is easy to digest and more importantly, it is placed in a practical framework.
    Keep up the good work!

    I appreciate the number of legal updates and find that they are perfectly pitched. They seem to provide the right amount of information each time.

    I think your service is exceptional

    Dear Sir and or Madam

    I have found that your ” Blogs ” have been very interesting and helpful.

    I started off with four Freeholds in East London and it just growed and growed.

    As a Freeholder would be interersted in say More on Service Charges, yes I have read todays copy and due to the current problems, Debt Collecting and in relation to the LVT, for example, if a Leaseholder owes the Insurance premium element of the Service Charge and the amount is above £ 350.00 and I have written to the Mortgage Lender and they are not interested, do I go to the LVT first and then the County Court or the other way around.

    Therefore would be interested in more to assisit or comment in respect of Freeholders.

    Again many thanks for writing the articles, and look forward to much more reading.

    With kind regards,

    Peter Conway

    Please don’t stop doing what your doing and more of the same would be appreciated. I’m not saying I have a use for every blog but they all have an interest so please keep up the good work…..

    I always read your blogs and find all of the subject matter interesting regardless as to whether it is relevant to me at the time. My business is more aimed towards the rights and obligations of the tenant but it is interesting to see the over viewpoint too and to get an idea of how the courts are reacting to matters at the time. Keep it up and well done!

  • James Birkin 24th August 2011 at 12:37 pm

    As a regrettably unemployed lawyer – I find your updates really interesting – keeps the attention levels up!

  • Ray Comer 24th August 2011 at 12:42 pm

    I concur with the other users, the posts are an excellent way of keeping upto date with ongoing changes in the letting industry; a qualitifed opinion on the various cases that affect us all. Please keep them coming.

  • Ashton Roberts 24th August 2011 at 3:10 pm

    The blogs are always interesting, even if not directly relevant to ones own situation. Some of them may seem to cover obscure or minority areas, but those are the ones where it is difficult to get any information anywhere else.
    Always interesting to get information on upcoming legislation and results of test cases.
    As Valerie said, it could be worth mentioning any routine enquiries that keep coming up

  • Stephen Johnson 24th August 2011 at 3:21 pm

    I think it would be unwise to change anything that you are already doing in so far as case reporting and legal development are concerned. Issues arise randomly, so, should you begin to focus more resources on a particular area of interest by taking them away from another the result could be a dearth of information together with the under utilisation of those resources. Leave it alone. You cannot please all the people all of the time and if it ain’t broke then why try to fix it?

  • Libby 25th August 2011 at 12:03 pm

    We find it interesting to read about live cases between tenant and landlord which highlight topics that Letting Agents need to be aware of but also value your comment on legislation changes.
    Not so interested in the very obscure cases!

  • Alex Broadfoot 30th August 2011 at 12:45 pm

    Pain Smith’s blogs are always incredibly useful to us in property management in helping us keep abreast of all legal goings on.

    Put forward in ‘plain english’ thay are really very inciteful and easily digested. I can’t recommend any changes but I’m sure that any you implement will be well recieved.
