I read the RLA’s response to the JRF report on evictions and went on to read the full JRF report.
Given it is built on interviews with 145 tenants who were Shelter clients it was never going to be unbiased was it?
This is just one example of the spin in the report:
Reasons reported by tenants for tenancies ending:-
This suggests that just under a quarter of moves from private rented properties in England were forced in some way – not simply because the tenant wanted to move.
So, the statistics show that only 8% of the tenants were asked to leave by their landlord, but JRF manages to turn this into ‘just under a quarter of moves from privately rented accommodation were “forced” in some way.’ The intimation is, of course, that the landlord ‘forced’ the tenant out without using a S21 or S8.
How can these organisations (Joseph Rowntree Foundation, Shelter) hope to maintain credibility when they spin better than Alastair Cambell did?
When will someone have the courage and confidence to interview tenants AND landlords, to produce a balanced, unbiased, and ultimately far more helpful report?
