I am a landlady in West Yorkshire and I did not see the need for me to join your web site as I only have one property with a good tenant, but the turning point for me was when I was reading the house price crash forum and I always get annoyed at those type of forums when they tar all landlords as slum landlords. If we did that to tenants there would be a national uproar, anyway to my disgust I read one tenant saying they had viewed a property to rent and found that the previous tenant had left slashing the carpets and it had left them with a warm glow. I felt so angry about this that I immediately joined your site. Thinking that that tenant thought like that and was trying to get a home they could destroy with no fear of prosecution made my blood boil.
I am so glad I did because although initially I was sure there would be a catch and that the site would not be free, it turns out it really, really is and I for one will show my support for them by joining. I now understand that the reason the site is free is it is funded by sponsor advertisers. As I am also a book keeper I have decided to get together an advert so that I too can advertise to landlords to help them with their books.
I love the tenant searches that you send out on a regular basis and I feel that it really keeps me and other in touch and makes me feel part of a nationwide network of landlords.
Thank you LRS for being the only people that seem to be organised enough to stop the abuse by Tenants and I hope we all join together and succeed.
