Before kicking off with the inevitable list of forum rules, I just want to welcome you to the Landlord Forum Project. We (myself and all the other amazing moderators) are ALL here to help and provide support where we can.

Unfortunately, in order to keep this place functioning like a well-oiled machine we need to keep some order. Here are a few rules/requests, which we hope you will kindly abide by:

1) Please avoid being a 'one post wonder'. This is the act of posting a question, which someone kindly takes the time and effort to address, but you're never to be seen again. If someone has made the conscience effort to assist you, please make the effort to check back soon after, not only show some mutual respect, but to also inform of us of your outcome/decision. Your experience may help others in a similar situation.

2) Please DO NOT write your subject title or comment with the capslock on. It's irritating and it doesn't give your comment any form of urgency. On the contrary, it will be deleted and given zero priority. Everyone's cry for help is equally important.

3) Try to make your subject title descriptive. For example, if your tenant is in arrears and you require guidance, set your subject as something like "My tenant is 2 months in arrears"

Try to avoid ambiguous and hollow subject titles like "HELP!" 99.9% of the threads created are from people requiring some form of help.

4) The only reason we're here is to help you. We want to help you, believe me. However, in order to help you we need as much detail as possible. So if you want a genuine response to a genuine problem, please provide us with as much details as possible so you're given the best possible response. There's nothing more frustrating than trying to help someone that doesn't give us the full picture (or at least try to).

5) Many of the same questions get repeatedly asked, so before you ask your question, use the search feature and look through the archives. If you happen to ask a question that's been answered even after using the search, it's not a problem at all. But at least take a minute or two to see if you can find what you're looking for before asking your question.

6) It goes without saying that any threads/posts that consist of blatant advertising and offer zero substance will be removed immediately.

Thank you for playing ball, it's much appreciated :)
