You may have noticed that I have been doing a series called ‘Housing Law – the bigger picture‘ for the past three months or so.
Well the series is due to come to an end on Monday when I publish the final part. I will also be publishing the whole series as an ebook.
I shall be quite glad to get it off my desk actually, as it has taken up an inordinate amount of time. As I am putting my head above the parapet and making actual suggestions and recommendations, I have for the past two weeks been doing constant tweaking.
Its still not finished – I have to check a new section I have added, there is a picture to find and clip to size, and I fear there is a further tweak needed to the conclusion.
