Re: Farewell Section 21???

I very much doubt this version of events Perhaps you are too young to remember? :) I was advising landlords of controlled and regulated tenancies long before the introduction of ASTs. As for paying to be rid of residential tenants, that was a norm for some property dealers. As far as I know, the co...

Re: Is a website really necessary?

My application for SSL EV has been rejected.

I am VAT registered but apparently that's not good enough.
