Really thick, I would say, because it looks like the property in question is not available. The genius aspect is to make it look like loads of properties are actually let and few are to let, but that s the kind of genius which overlooks a fatal flaw.

Property supplement to the free rag has gone from about 1 page of rental ads to about half the rag over 18 months. I doubt these signs make anyone feel denied a place to rent.

Go on, add the 'i'! You know you want to, and you know where it fits!

* Only joking, not advising vandalism...

Ah, but inserting something between the 'to' and the 'let' would be splitting an infinitive. Unforgiveable.
