    Hi Sharron,

    I really appreciate your recognition of David's contributions.

    David is so generous in sharing his knowledge and assisting landlords.  He works tirelessly at many different levels to improve knowledge and standards in the PRS.

    I offer a personal thanks to him as well, for answering so many questions on PT and supporting this community - not to mention his fantastic content for "HMO Compliance Week", which was also his idea.

    David is a real star and PT is very lucky to have him contributing here.  Thank you David for all you do for landlords!

    I would like to agree wholeheartedly. His responses to my issues have always been quick and excellent and have helped me sleep at night over a real problem tenant. Best advice ever.

    I am not sure what to say. Thank you very much for these comments. I am not entirely sure they are deserved but I am taking them anyway! A very nice start to my day

    I agree David  has very good knowledge and a clear precise manner which cuts out the waffle

    So his 1 min videos get straight to the point on any specified topic and are very helpful I find

    My one caveat is though and this is not a criticism against him but an observation of the profession

    Solicitors carry a lot of weight when they say stuff so people listen and often act on what they say

    But solicitors approach problem solving from a very different angle than say a counsellor

    Both have their place in this business even though some may  disagree

    Being a LL you have to be multi skilled and have an armoury to match

    Sometimes serving a Sec 21 / Sec 8 notice etc is not the immediate  or best answer .

    Sometimes a cup of tea and a chat with a tenant produces a much better solution to your problem

    So don`t always reach for the law book first . Have that law book though in your back pocket

    And for that law book yes David is an excellent resource and I would feel safe in his hands . Thank you
