Action not words needed from landlords

Action not words needed from landlords

Hello, So it has come to pass!  I have finally decided we must collectively and actively respond to the bludgeoning government policy against landlords where it hurts most – their voter base.

I will be starting a campaign which, if it reaches 10,000 signatures, will be debated in Parliament. This should be easy to reach as there over 400,000 PRS landlords who have not been represented well by many of our landlord associations.

We must speak up for ourselves!

It is because the pendulum of voices are weighted high for tenants that landlords voices are drowned out.

So, by having a call to arms, so to speak, and getting all landlords to spread the word about the petition – to repeal section 24 immediately – we can begin to reclaim our purpose back to provide a housing sector fit for both tenants and housing providers, as opposed to the insanity prevailing with a tenant’s blindsided view of the real world.

Keep an eye out for further details.

I have many good tenants that I would not necessarily want to evict however, it would be a good gesture to the government that we have had enough.

I wrote to all my tenants when we had to put rents up and asked them to lobby their M.P.'s I am not sure if any actually did.

This is the first suggestion of real action landlords can easily take, without costing more than a piece of paper and a stamp. Even if nothing happens, there are plenty of renters desperate for good quality properties, and would inevitably pay more rent. Yes, this would cause so much grief for existing tenants, but what about the grief for landlords. It's our property and our lives. It's our stress and the impact that has on our health and our families. It's our choice!

I have just issued a S13. Not a massive increase, but I know it will be a problem for my tenant. However, I want to exit the PRS in any case, so a S21 will follow.

`After 10,000 signatures, petitions get a response from the government. After 100,000 signatures, petitions are considered for debate in Parliament.` as I discovered when I instigated a petition on another matter.
Whatever, L/L`s & those involved with PRS need to do this, It`s become clear to me that HMG & big plc`s are angling to control rental properties because HMG simply cannot solve the housing problems & will conive with large plc`s to take over, tax incentives etc, the precise opposite of the current regime offers. Start the petition, sign & encourage everybody you know ( & trust) to sign it. We are being burgled before our eyes.

When will this petition start. It can’t start quick enough for me. If the government go ahead with their plans it’s going to be very detrimental to landlords and renters

Shouldn't the NRLA start it?

Maybe we should protest everyone else does it

I wrote to my M.P. about changing the way that improvements where taxed by allowing landlords to off set improvements to properties against income rather than capital gains as I felt that it would encourage landlords to upgrade properties.

I received a letter back basically about tax and raising money.

He clearly had not read my letter properly and was certainly not interested in Landlords apart from how much tax they could be screwed for.

I would love to see this succeed. Landlords seem to be voiceless. The thing I find most frustrating is the NLA. I hear nothing from them.Why are they not insisting on representation on BBC programmes dealing with housing? Why are they not trying to remove licensing schemes? Why are they not bombarding the media every day with pro-landlord material? They seem to have decided that they can make more money by providing training schemes for landlords and advice on the ludicrous amount of pointless housing legislation.
