Both landlords and tenants have rights.
At Property118 we provide FREE help for landlords and tenants in dispute. Perhaps more importantly though, our impartial mediation seeks win/win solutions for both landlords and tenants. Please don’t risk cutting off your nose to spite your face – read on.
Very few landlords are outright criminals but sadly, crooks can be found operating in every sector.
We want to help YOU!
To find out why and how please keep reading.
Coming from somebody like me, a landlord myself, the above probably sounds a bit strange or even far fetched. However, like most GOOD Landlords, I am frustrated at how landlords in general are so often demonised by media and propaganda organisations. Some of the worst offenders have been housing charities!
Worse still, I despise organisations who promote and relish in conflict, and profit off the backs of other peoples misery.
Neither landlords nor tenants want legal battles, so why do so many organisations strive to build a “them and us” culture?
Surely it’s better to be solution conscious?
No tenant deserves to be robbed of their deposit or illegally evicted, I think that’s a fair starting point for us all.
By the same token, no GOOD Landlord wants their hard work and investments to be governed by unnecessary additional red tape and bureaucracy.
Sadly, when extremist organisations get their way, and when more legislation is introduced, this results in rent rises to fund the additional costs of compliance. In extreme cases this can lead to less availability of quality rental property, e.g. landlords choosing not to invest further, or even disinvest in some areas (Newham in London is a classic example).
Tenants don’t want more red tape, bureaucracy and costs any more than landlords do, hence we must look for solutions together.
GOOD Landlords like me are happy to help tenants who have been unjustly victimised. Together we have an opportunity to put things right and perhaps even put some of the bad guys and the criminals out of business, and of course teach those who are naive and/or greedy their responsibilities.
Wherever possible, we prefer to help landlords and tenants to patch up their differences amicably. Only in the most extreme cases will we recommend legal action.
Here at Property118, landlords who subscribe to our forums have helped several tenants by providing them with free advice and, where appropriate, we have even introduced tenants to specialist solicitors, some of which will even consider taking on cases on a no-win-no-fee basis.
Property118 was created to facilitate the sharing of best practice amongst UK landlords, tenants and letting agents. The GOOD Landlords Campaign was created to raise the necessary funding to pursue this mission.
So here’s my proposal …..
Tell me your story by completing the form below and I will personally look into your case and do all that I can to help you.
I ask just three things of you by way of return:-
1) That you give me permission to publish your story on a no names basis
2) That if I provide you with assistance you let me know how you get on
3) That you will consider making a donation to Property118. This will help us to continue to provide this service for others in your position – see >>> http://www.property118.com/donations/43590/
