    I made the same point about brevity once (now archived here - posts 11 and 23)

    The main reason for the limit is to prevent "LOL" and suchlike.

    How about extending this idea to banks, insurance companies, etc. They cannot state their acceptance criteria in case this offends someone, so the customer has no idea whether they stand any chance...

    It would be possible to make deliberately inflammatory comparisons in any number of situations.

    For instance, consider a nursery that is looking for part-time staff. Two of their excluded groups...

    Yes. As long as the landlord takes the risk, they must have the choice.

    Insurance companies discriminate all the time. As do banks. As do most businesses (and indeed individuals) one way or...

    16% for full management sounds high. Fee structures do of course vary and if that is all-inclusive then it is not necessarily more expensive than an agent with a lower headline rate, but various...

    Ah yes. Sorry - it's because it has been archived. The link was to where it used to be (because I have quoted it before) rather than where it is now. I have corrected the link in post #5. The...

    I have answered a similar question before. On that occasion, regarding things I would expect / hope for a letting agent to do, I said the following:

    Returning to the pressing issue of whether it sounds silly to say "If there be...", I have done a quick bit of research. It seems that it is more archaic than actually wrong. Therefore I would say...

    Not as far as I am aware, no (although I am no legal eagle).

    Thanks for the comments.



    It states that S8 can be used in case of a breach, although not specifically when. It says (in what sounds to me like yokel/pirate dialect*):
