Rent Dodgers

How do get maximum exposure from just 2 estate agent boards.

Whilst down South councils are thinking of banning estate agent boards because they don't look good, a clever agent in Liverpool had the idea to name and shame tenants who were refusing to pay rent and resisting attempts at communication. The shaming tactic is to nail a sign board on the house as below:

The media have lept all over this and you can see footage of it at the BBC and the lawyers are following, but at the end of the day, this agent is working hard for his client, the landlord and should be applauded.

PS. If Councils have the gall to advise on advertising and marketing in the property industry, perhaps they would accept some advice about where to keep their money. I know a very good Ugandan online bank I have just set up offering great rates of interest. Any takers?!
