2. Landlord Mr L didn't meet the safety standards in his property, put the lives of his tenants at risk AND finding himself with £30,000 of fines and court costs.


3. Mrs T decided to manage her tenancy herself. A simple oversight on her behalf landed her with a penalty and legal costs.


4. When Mr & Mrs D let their property out to a friend they didn't see the need for a professional inventory. They also didn't see that 3 years down the line they would be in court and over £1,000 out of pocket.


5. Experienced Landlords, Mr & Mrs W didn't take out a reference from a new tenant as they were a friend of a friend. They could have avoided a loss of £6,000 plus solicitor and court fees.


6. Mr S let out his annexe to someone who responded to an advert he'd put online, the tenant seemed trustworthy so Mr S didn't bother with a professional tenancy agreement - find out what happened next.
