Technological Times to Survive

On the first Friday of 2012 I have just read another article on how a very well known and much loved company of better times is now on the brink of bankruptcy;…..82408.html.

Now we can all seen how things are going with the economy not being at it’s strongest, but who would have ever thought that a photo giant would be left behind by digital cameras, computer printing, usb saving and memory cards??? This is just another sign that the world is evolving into a completely new technological age and has been for some time; with the likes of Apple and other software companies getting smarter and better; ultimately producing more and more new advances in technology.

I suppose the entire reason for this post is that when it comes to ways of making life easier and more advanced by the internet and technology why not protect your investments and future pensions with the best and most advanced referencing in the UK?
As people find more and more ways to rip off landlords and letting agents, getting smarter every day, in my eyes there is only one way to fully protect yourself  when it comes to stopping bad and rogue tenants;

Why put yourself, your property and your good tenants at risk when there is a one of a kind system in place to help prevent this? As every company is trying to put themselves ahead of the competition I personally believe that this is the ultimate way to do it in terms of referencing; as we are the UK’s only lifestyle referencing company to date.

Who do you think will be next to go into administration?
To stop it happening to us we urge you to spread the word about our services to your fellow landlords & letting agents.

I guess with the changes over the last 30 years that companies like Kodak who probably did not move with the times quickly enough were always going to be on a sticky wicket.  I am old enough to remember going abroad and changing a roll of film wherever I could – always providing you could find a local shop that sold a new roll of film at a vastly inflated price.  I can't say that I will shed too many tears over that, although you should always remember the human element of their staff losing their jobs etc.


Who is next to go into administration ?  I imagine there will be one or two major shocks later on this Year to find our about.


Returning to post then it makes sense to move with the times and this site certainly appears to tick the boxes with your tenant alerts and news about some of the rogue tenants who seem to make a serial living moving from property to property leaving property damage and rent arrears in their midst.  How some of them sleep at night I really do not know.  I have been fortunate to avoid this type of tenant but you never know.  I expect I could have said well it's never happened to me and why should I bother ?  But as the site is free and as far as I can tell is expected to,  then I think this is a “no brainer” although I hate that phrase !!!


I'm into my eighth decade now and I am sure that there will be many more technological advances in the coming years but even I know that sticking your head in the sand like an ostrich hoping that you won't be touched by bad tenants won't always work.  Happy new Year to you Dean.
