Guardian Money -16 August 08

A piece for last Saturday's Guardian.

Apparently, now is a good time to rent somewhere, as the shortage of houses being sold has led to a surfeit of properties available to rent, as a consequence of which the prices that landlords are able to demand have fallen.

My scenario above is based on the 1970's UK sitcom "Rising Damp" about a seedy and unscrupulous landlord Rigsby and his three tenants Alan (?), Miss Jones and Philip (who always seemed to get the better of him).
