Tenant fees ban ‘set to change the way rental property ads are written’

first_imgAdverts for rental property will have to change significantly in the coming months as the practical application of the tenant fees ban is worked out on the ground, it has been claimed.ARLA Propertymark chief executive David Cox (pictured, below) says adverts may soon have to give details of what’s included in the rent in order for services to be charged that otherwise are prohibited by the Tenant Fees Act.“For example we’re having lots of questions being asked about chimney sweeping,” he says.“It may sound odd, but if a chimney needs to be swept once or twice a year then the advert would have to make it clear that the rent included that service because it can’t be charged for separately.“It’s just one example of a piece of legislation that looks simple on the surface but when you start getting into it is ludicrously complicated.”Pet subjectCox has told The Negotiator that another sticking point is charging extra fees for pets. Agents are not able to charge a fee for extra cleaning services under the legislation, so adverts should now include two rents for pet-friendly landlords.“If the rent is £500 a month for a pet-friendly house then a second rent will have to be quoted for in the advert for those who might be bringing a pet with them – perhaps an extra £20 a month,” says Cox.Contents insurance is also causing confusion. ARLA says some agents believe they can require or ‘mandate’ tenants to take out contents insurance as a condition of moving into a property. But this is now a prohibited payment.ARLA’s David Cox Association of Residential Letting Agents June 11, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Public Gives Feedback To Proposed Vectren Projects

first_imgTwitterFacebook CommentsFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare Public Gives Feedback To Proposed Vectren ProjectsJULY 11TH, 2018 JEFF GOLDBERG EVANSVILLE, INDIANAWhen Vectren CEO announced the company’s plan to move into more energy efficient power generation he called it “the biggest project the company has ever taken on.”The proposed project would mostly end the company’s reliance on coal. The plan calls for a new 865-megawatt natural gas plant that would sit on Vectren’s current A.B. Brown site. That plant and a 50-megawatt solar field would make up for 4 out of 5 coal-fired plants the company currently uses. With those four retired the company would also retrofit the fifth plant in Warrick County.Before any of those changes can go into effect Vectren needs approval from the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission. Vectren has already given testimony and exhibits to the IURC and on Wednesday night it was the public’s time to testify.Those who wished to speak at a public feedback forum were sworn in just like a normal court case. Their testimony will be used down the line as the IURC forms their final decisions about the projects.The committee was hearing feedback about the big natural gas plant the retrofitting of the Warrick County coal plant and some rate increases that may come along with the project. The solar project is a different case.There were plenty of environmentalists on hand, giving testimony that this plant doesn’t go far enough to be energy efficient. They want even more renewables to power the Vectren’s 145,000 customers.Interestingly enough, the other folks testifying against this project were those with coal in mind. Those folks also want the project to fail so the coal-fired plants can stay open.Those with business interests directly related to the project we’re the ones speaking for the project. A man saying he represents the local builders guild was for the project because he wants his construction workers to help construct the new plant.There were no final decisions made tonight. There is still a chance to have your voice heard in the matter. If you’re a Vectren ratepayer and want to submit testimony it can still be done until August 3rd. It can be done online at www.IN.gov/OUCC by clicking the “Contact Us” link. You can send in your comments by email at [email protected] It can also be done by fax at (317) 232-5923.If regular mail is your thing comments can be sent by mail to:Indiana office of Utility Consumer CounselorConsumer Services Staff115 W.

Dr. Bucshon’s Statement on SOTU

first_img Congressman Bucshon’s Statement on SOTU(WASHINGTON, DC) – Congressman Larry Bucshon, M.D. released the following statement after President Obama’s last State of the Union address to the nation:“Tonight, the American people didn’t hear anything new from a president who desperately wants to secure his legacy and help his party in 2016. His address was more like a campaign speech to convince us that if we just stay the course, his failed policies will actually start working. Unfortunately the facts tell a different story. Peddling politics of division and envy won’t turn the economy around and ignoring the threats we face throughout the world won’t defeat our enemies and keeps Americans safe at home or abroad.“In contrast, the American people heard a positive vision for the future during the Republican response. Our agenda promotes upward mobility and economic opportunity. Our agenda envisions a strong America that leads, protects our people, and supports our allies. Our agenda will empower the American people and protect their Constitutional rights.”Congressman Larry Bucshon, M.D. is a physician and Republican member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee serving his third term representing Indiana’s 8th Congressional district. The 8th District of Indiana includes all or parts of Clay, Crawford, Daviess, Dubois, Gibson, Greene, Knox, Martin, Owen, Parke, Perry, Pike, Posey, Spencer, Sullivan, Vanderburgh, Vermillion, Vigo, and Warrick counties.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Personal touch

first_imgWhen Newcastle-based finance director Richard Linfoot, 42, was made redundant from his accountancy job, he thought long and hard about what he would do next.Swapping his briefcase for a baker’s apron, he and wife Jane worked out a business plan, got their kitchen inspected and licensed by the local council and, earlier this year, opened for business as the Gosforth Cake Company.Their plan was to offer baked-to-order cakes, delivered personally door-to-door for local residents. Richard explains: “As this is a new business, we are still on a learning curve. We began by leafleting the local area and this proved successful. We are now doing about 40 cakes a week, but this was from a standing start and it is increasing all the time.”Starting on a small scale, the couple has been able to finance the business themselves. Additionally they had previously upgraded their kitchen, so it was able to satisfy local environmental health demands. Richard also had a head-start on the baking side as well. “My mother was always baking and I learned from her.”Jane adds: “I never thought, a year ago, that we would be making a living out of baking. I always said I married him for his puddings and his cakes were beautiful too.”The couple attribute success to using old-fashioned personalised ways of doing things and this has struck a chord. “I don’t specialise in fancy cakes for weddings, although I will do them; I make traditional old-fashioned ones such as chocolate, coffee, fruit, lemon drizzle and a whole load more.”At present Richard does the baking, Jane does most of the deliveries and children Nicholas and Anna are the unofficial tasters. “There is no doubt that we have tapped into a market that is out there,” says Richard. “By this time next year, I hope we will be in our own small bakery unit, but still selling privately to households. Partly, this is because if we sell into shops, we will lose part of our margin, but also because we use only natural ingredients, the shelf-life would probably not be long enough for shops.” n—-=== The pros and cons ===Biggest ChallengeRichard: Managing demand. There is a greater demand for the weekend and this can create problems. If there are 10 different orders for 10 different cakes on a Friday afternoon, this can create problems in the kitchen. However, as we grow and learn, we will be able to see the pattern better.Biggest satisfactionRichard: Being my own boss and being in charge of my own life. To be able to make a living baking cakes is really a dream come true.Jane: It is a bit of a change from being a finance director to baker, but Richard is more fulfilled and is doing something he enjoys.—-=== Going it alone ===The firm: The Gosforth Cake Company, Gosforth, Newcastle upon TyneThe brief: baking cakes to order for delivery to the customer’s doorProducts: 10 different types of cake – coffee, chocolate, vanilla, lemon, carrot, lemon or orange drizzle, apple and cinnamon, fruit cake, banana and date cake, fruit tea cake.

Conservatism is in ‘crisis’

first_imgAndrew Sullivan, political commentator and blogger with The Daily Beast, gave the 2011 Theodore H. White Lecture on Press and Politics at the John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum Thursday.In his lecture, “Conservatism and Its Discontents,” Sullivan argued that conservatism today is in a “crisis” and is “unrecognizable” from its traditional heritage. Sullivan said that he “does not recognize the Republican Party as a conservative force.”True conservatism, Sullivan said, is concerned with the “paradox of progress” and recognizes that “society is not a formula” and that “culture matters.” He went on to point out that the state is not the only danger to free society. “The accumulation of power by bankers and corporations is also a threat, and should be subject to conservative critique,” he told his forum audience.Preceding the lecture, the seventh annual David Nyhan Prize was awarded to Thomas Frank, author of “What’s the Matter With Kansas?” and a columnist for Harper’s Magazine. In his remarks upon receiving the award, Frank said, “We are living in an age of catastrophic intellectual malfunction.”Recalling political policies over the past decade, he said, “The consensus was wrong all along,” but added, “my views were outside the consensus.”Thomas Frank was the winner of the 2011 David Nyan Prize.
