More than one in two reported that the combined effects have reached”worrying” levels. The survey of almost 1,000 hospitality professionals found 40 per cent ofrespondents had seen colleagues take illegal drugs while at work, and 59 percent had seen colleagues drinking to excess while on duty. Alcohol emerged asthe bigger problem of the two, with 99 per cent of respondents identifying itas a problem for the industry.

There is mounting evidence that the “unintended consequences” of the Government’s tenant fees ban are fast becoming reality, new research by Yorkshire’s largest letting agent has found.Linley & Simpson, an independent agency with 16 branches across North and West Yorkshire, has told The Negotiator that the first three months of the legislation triggered an average rent increase of 4-5% on new lets.While the rise was no surprise to Chief Executive and founder, Will Linley (picture, above), the scale and speed of the increase certainly did, “The fee ban is in its infancy but our data, which mirrors research by Belvoir and others, exposes the shortcomings in the Government’s thinking,” he said.“We now see a picture, rapidly emerging across England that, for evidences the scale and pace of the impact on tenants’ pockets. After 30 years in the sector, I’d say this uplift is unprecedented.“Agents like us warned the Government about the unintended consequences of its approach, yet our voice and suggested alternatives were ignored.“Our fears are now being borne out with tenants facing higher rents almost overnight. With rising demand and a shortage of new buy-to-let activity – another far-reaching result of the ban – the upward trend in monthly rents is only going to accelerate.”tenant fees ban“The Government’s anti-landlord tax regime is supressing supply as some landlords off-load their portfolios.“Supply and demand is increasingly out of kilter, we are striving hard to redress this imbalance. Meanwhile, there is added pressure on landlords to increase returns, in the face of rising tax liabilities and higher agency costs post the fee ban.“These complex dynamics look set to deliver a poor deal for tenants. Like many agencies, I look forward to our sector sharing its collective concerns about this impact of the ban with Number 10, MPs, the Treasury and the Ministry of Justice.”Read more about rising rents and the tenant fees ban.Linley & Simpson tenant fees ban Will Linley September 6, 2019Nigel LewisOne commentJulian Blackmore, BNE BNE 6th September 2019 at 10:54 amI predicted it along with others; I even had an official meeting with the Housing Minister and handed over my letter stating such.

Another attempt to breach the University’s email network had been made, according to an online notice posted Wednesday by the Oxford University Computing Services (OUCS). A notice posted on Oxford’s Webmail site on Wednesday morning warned users to ‘NOT click any web links in emails’ and to ‘NEVER reply to such emails.’Brasenose ICT officer Peter Bushnell names David Ford as the first to be aware of the so-called ‘phishing’ attempt.Ford, a member of OUCS’s Network Security Team, sent a personal alert to various college IT officers, informing them that the fraudulent email is one “claiming to be an announcement of scheduled maintenance and asking the user to reply immediately with their password.”“I don’t know what the details are but I just thought I’d warn everybody and forward the email from David, since he’s the person to ask,” said Bushnell.It is unknown how many people gave up their details as a result the email, and whether any measures have been taken to stop the phisher.OUCS refused to comment. The email’s sender poses as an administrator of the University’s official email network, using the address Webmail @ Subscriber.net, to trick users into revealing their Webmail username and password.The emails have “SUBSCRIBERS GET BACK” in the subject line, and have been sent to University email account holders as part of a so-called ‘phishing’ attack.

NAFCU has actively worked with the FCC on efforts to modernize the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) for more than three years, and will continue to work to ensure credit unions can contact their members regarding important, time-sensitive information, without fear of frivolous litigation.NAFCU President and CEO Dan Berger attended the meeting alongside NAFCU Executive Vice President and General Counsel Carrie Hunt, Director of Regulatory Affairs Ann Kossachev, and Regulatory Affairs Counsel Mahlet Makonnen.Earlier this year, 51 attorneys general and 12 of the largest telephone companies in the U.S. signed a pledge to combat illegal robocalls by implementing the SHAKEN/STIR call-blocking technology at no cost to consumers. NAFCU hadpreviously joined with several other trade groups to recommend that the FCC direct voice service providers to notify callers and consumers of blocked calls and remove erroneous blocks expeditiously in order to receive safe harbor protection.
Sale of the century “We’re also seeing clients forego the traditional formal dining area and replace it with a cinema room or even a rumpus. That’s the best thing about building from new, you can personalise your home to suit your needs both now and into the future.”Hotondo Homes specialises in single and double storey homes, split level homes for sloping blocks, duplex designs and acreage properties. FOLLOW US ON FACEBOOK There’s big demand for open-plan living, dining and kitchen areas.Mr Linton said many clients opted to build double storey homes on small blocks because they were more cost effective and provided a solution to mutigenerational families with split zoned living.“We’re certainly seeing more and more people going up. Given the size of blocks are getting smaller, the demand for homes that can cleverly utilise space is increasing,” he said.A growing trend in Queensland also includes the rise of the outside lifestyle, with more and more homeowners choosing to bring the outdoors in.“It’s all about the indoor-outdoor area, we’re seeing a lot of open-plan living, dining and kitchen areas which seamlessly blend into the alfresco, providing the perfect spot for all year round entertainment,” he said. A fresh new bathroom is on the wishlist of many rebuilders.“We’re also selling many house and land packages in the Rochedale, Greenbank, Calamvale areas, as well as Wynnum West and Bridgeman Downs,” Mr Linton said.The Tarkine 238 is a popular choice for many homeowners, according to Mr Linton who said it easily fits on narrow block with a 12.5 metre frontage.“It’s still a big home and features four large bedrooms and two bathrooms. It also recently won a HIA Display Home of the Year award in the $300,000-$400,000 category,” he said.In Brisbane’s western suburbs, a home at Graceville was knocked down on Magee St with the owners choosing to build their dream home in its place.
