“Don’t be sur­prised that’s the way this sys­tem is. It by de­sign. Just imag­ine that if land­lords only had your one-month security de­posit, they would have to be good land­lords and not what you have now. The mar­ket­place would of­fer com­pe­ti­tion.”

ALEX JENK­INS

“There should be a law stat­ing all rent che­ques to be ei­ther quar­terly or monthly. Yearly and bi-yearly rent che­ques are ridicu­lous.”

CHRIS REID
