Mutual appreciation


Tessa Shepperson’s Landlord law blog has been up since February 2006, predating us by four months. The name is slightly misleading – Tessa deals with residential landlord and tenant matters and has much to say of interest for private tenants as well as landlords – see, for example, today’s helpful post on the use of credit unions to avoid banks seizing Local Housing Allowance money from tenants’ current accounts to pay other debts, thus leading to rent arrears. Her blog has also pointed to new tenancy deposit cases that we have gratefully pounced on.

Tessa has just said some nice things about this blog in a post on current housing/L&T blogs and it reminded me both that she has been a friend of this blog since the beginning and that a bit of appreciation of her work wouldn’t go amiss. Tessa writes the blog alongside her business site – her practice is based online – but rather than simply being a promotional device, the blog is always an interesting and useful read, which is both generous and, in my view, shows an astute understanding of web 2.0 marketing…
