Take boards down

First published in Letters by

IT IS the time of year when ‘to let’ signs appear in residential areas around the University of York. I know students are moving on and the landlords need new tenants but why, once a new agreement has been made, must ‘let agreed’ signs go up and blight the streets even longer than necessary?

The landlord has his money for the next year and that should be the end of it, apart from them telling the new tenants to keep waste bins out of sight until collection day and landlords to hire gardeners to keep front and back gardens tidy, as there are still privately owned homes in these areas.

Mrs M Robinson, Broadway, York.

Maybe the boards are there to show that the house is a student rental property and any students who are still looking can make a note of the address for the following year.... Why indeed do houses have "Sold" boards up?

The boards are there simply because it's free advertising for estate agents.
It's licence to have the brand name on public display without paying billboard fees.

Nothing more, nothing less.
