Tis the season…


As you all know, the assorted (very assorted) lawyers that make up the NL team do this for the love of it (though heaven knows it is a demanding relationship at times). We’re glad that we can produce something that people find useful but mostly we just enjoy writing about housing law.

At about this time of year, though, it occurs to us to ask that should you find value in what we do, you might think about handing over some money in response. Not to us – we don’t want your money (unless professionally instructed, then the more the better) – but to some people who could make very good use of it.

As we all know, things are getting worse out there. Both homeless and street homeless figures are going up, fast, so we ask that, if any of our readers find value in what we produce, they make a donation to Crisis, Centrepoint or Shelter. The donation pages are herehere and here, respectively.

Of course, if you don’t want to (or can’t afford to), you shouldn’t feel obligated to make a donation. And we’ll keep on doing what we do here anyway. But it would be a very nice thing to do.

With best wishes
The NL Team

  1. What an absolutely brilliant idea. Merry Christmas from Divorce-Online ( Mark in particular) who has your blog as one of his daily reads.

  2. Very best wishes for 2013 and thanks for consistently interesting posts in 2012 from The Pavement (free monthly magazine for the UK’s homeless men and women) too!
