Things To Do Before I Turn 50

  (also known as my "TA-DA" list as opposed to a "to do" list) It was my 49th birthday a few days ago and this got me thinking. Any birthday that ends with a zero always feels a bit like milestone or a landmark and, when I hit the big "five-o" in 2022, I don't want huge parties or celebrations but I would like to have ticked a few things off my low-effort bucket list.   I see these things as a way to improve my mental and physical health, plus a few slightly off-the-wall experiences that would make for great memories.  Start running again and include the following: Lead a C25K group again  Participate in parkrun EVERY week where possible  < ongoing (now parkrun Run Director too) Visit local landmarks whilst running  Train for a long race - building up from 5k > 10k > 10 miles > half marathon, with a couple of longer trail races mixed in  Lose a lot bit of weight Post more on Instagram or give the blog a bit of a reboot < ongoing Look at

What Are Your Rights In Rented Accommodation?

If you're looking at renting your home it's a good idea to know your rights whether your are a tenant or a landlord.  

As a tenant you have the right to live in a property that's in a decent state of repair, to live in the accommodation undisturbed and to be protected from unfair rent and/or eviction - all of which (and more) will be covered in your tenancy agreement which should be signed by you and your landlord before you move in.

Landlords need to ensure that they are protected from non-payment of rent and expenses incurred by damage to the property but there's no legal requirement for landlords to have insurance (however, the mortgage lender may insist on it and there are some great deals on landlord insurance to be found).

Here's a fabulous infographic from HomeLet which may help answer some of your questions.
