It is a good idea, but I think most related comments would fit into categories that already exist... eg. a topic about growing plants in pots would go in gardening.

Well as the site founder I would say that we do cater for rented homes as I have one! Brij has really said what I wanted to, in that anything that is rented home specific can go in topics already on here. In fact it has been known for people to ask if stuff can be done in a rented home.

hi andy, i think mrs fibble has hit the nail on the head. when i rented i felt a bit vunerable and isolated. no tenants group just mad and sometimes downright scary neighbours inbedsit type places never mind an evil landlord or 2.since the 1970s things have changed a bit but in some places not much.
anyway will leave it with you all and fly off back to gardening on my broomstick. be happy be green luv tig

I think a section as you suggest, covering more of the legal side of things would be a potential third rail. When we talk about our homes we can quite rightly get very emotional, it could easily become a sounding board for slagging off landlords and they have enough money to sue!

Anyway, I found this which might help http://www.penaltychargesforum.co.uk/fo ... .php?f=273

thanks for the link,I have bookmarked it and will be able to pass the info on to any one who needs it. I hadnt envisaged a negative thread more a helpfull suggestions and encouragement area.I escaped the trials and tribulations of renting at the end of the seventies but now have friends who rent.I have to say that their place is not bad.cats allowed in ground floor places,space in the cmmunal garden to grow food and a cleaner once a week to clean shared bathrooms and toilets also hall stairs and landings.no scary people either .best wishes all be happy tiggy
