Following the success of the first two series, Channel 5 has commissioned a third series of ‘Nightmare Tenants, Slum Landlords’, with Landlord Action as one of the leading tenant eviction firms featuring throughout the twelve-part series.
As rents spiral ever upwards due to continuing pressure on housing stock, the dramatic observational documentary will continue to follow the conflicts between landlords and tenants. Previous episodes have uncovered sub-letting scams, rent arrears cases and uninhabitable conditions, and the third series will endeavour to uncover even more emerging industry issues.
Working closely with those landlords that have found themselves in extremely distressing situations, we will once again be exposing the most prevalent landlord/tenant issues. These include subletting scams, in particular those relating to the holiday rental market, retaliation eviction and more shocking rent arrears cases.
It is not just battles between landlords and tenants that can end up costing the persecuted party. Throughout more than 160 hours of filming, Landlord Action will also name and shame those unscrupulous letting agents seen to withhold rent from landlords and deposits from tenants. Letting or renting a property can be a complex business and one that is not without risk. For this reason, it is important that we expose the rogue letting agent operators who are tarnishing the reputation of those good, trustworthy agents. The industry will be a better place once Client Money Protection is mandatory for all letting agents, ensuring landlords’ rent and tenants’ deposits are protected.
Those landlords that have kindly agreed to share their story will help educate and prevent others from making the same mistakes.
The third series of ‘Nightmare Tenants Slum Landlords’ is due to air from February 2017.
