She's that one eyed lady known as Vested Interest.

I think it will improve it overall.
Tenants won't get ripped off as much as they do and Landlords who have been evading tax for years cos they can't be found will now have to declare their earnings (and so they should)

Garn- nobody even knows what "vested" means in this context; it's nothing to do with whar Americans call "undershirts".

a) I think it'll instill more confidence in Tenants to go out and let.
b) The tax evaders will get scared of being tracked down and sell up lots of properties, to which the honest LL's can purchase and expand their businesses.. . .
Thus will improve living conditions....
the health of the country......
A reduction in spending on the NHS . . . . .
FEWER INTEREST HIKES!!!!!!!!!! :D

1. Yes you did- well done.
2. Next, read all about capital letters.
3. To find most poppies, try Afghanistan.
4. Finally, tell us what you think "vested interest" means- that was the purpose of post.

1. Whoopa. There IS a GOD!
2. Don't need to really, was just being LAZY.
3. No there's 35 on here I'd rather find.
4. I think the purpose of the post really Jeffrey was an attempt at humour if I'm not mistaken.

From Wikipedia:


A vested interest is the state or condition of having a special interest in protecting or supporting something for the purpose of self-interest, gain or benefit, often financially or politically. By way of protecting their vested interests, individuals, groups or other entities may seek to maintain a status quo. However, if changing a system works in one's favor, supporting or effecting such change may also be in one's vested interest. "Vested interests" may also refer collectively to individuals or groups which seek to maintain a favorable state of affairs.

The context is perfect IMO.

Actually when I use such chat up lines I use the word 'poppet' not poppy. Haha

Lorenzo: yes, in informal parlance.
BUT
"Vested interest" is in fact a Probate law term, dealing with how ownership passes to members in a class of beneficiaries (eg a Will's bequest to "such of my children as attain the age of twenty-one" which allows shares to remain undistributed after Testator's death so as to see which children reach that age later).

Like nearly every word, there are several meanings according to context.


vested interest
–noun
1. a special interest in an existing system, arrangement, or institution for particular personal reasons.
2. a permanent right given to an employee under a pension plan.
3. vested interests, the persons, groups, etc., who benefit the most from existing business or financial systems.

vested interest
n.

1. Law A right or title, as to present or future possession of an estate, that can be conveyed to another.
2. A fixed right granted to an employee under a pension plan.
3. A special interest in protecting or promoting that which is to one's own personal advantage.
4. vested interests Those groups that seek to maintain or control an existing system or activity from which they derive private benefit.



As we were talking about TDS rather than probate law, I think the meaning according to context was quite clear.
