I Left My Dream Job After Buy-to-let Mess

Recommended Posts

Tenants are protected from rogue landlords and agents by laws that came into force last year, but these do nothing to protect property owners...

I don't see how the story justifies this sentence. The LA could just as easily have screwed the tenant as the LL. The problem is that LAs are not legally regulated and therefore cowboys can and do operate in the business. That's just as much of a problem for tenants as it is for landlords.

Is being a Driving Instructor really anyone's dream job? :o

I can't imagine Driving Instructor being a big earner in the Caribbean, or the tests being that complicated... but maybe I'm totally wrong.


At least poor Cat now seems to have got her money and can carry on instructing.
