If Landlord Farts, Burps or Snores, property should be repossessed?

My friend and I had a meeting yesterday, both of us have been landlords for around 20 years. We exchanged our grievances of current government policies against landlords. In particular, my friend suggested that, he is concerned that, if Shelter or any other organisation suggested to government that any landlord caught farting, burping or snoring should have their properties repossessed.

My friend bets his bottom dollar that, government will go through a normal consultation process with preconceived idea and eventually it will pass through parliament and will receive “Royal Ascent”.

We are so worried about this notion that, we are contemplating selling all our properties.

Moral? Government seems to be passing as Law each and everything put before them.

Given that in some Selective Licence areas a landlords can receive up to a £30,000 if their tenant is guilty of anti-social behavior I think it is fair to say the world has truly gone mad and the hypothesis behind the above article isn't that far far removed from the current reality!

It is almost a far fetched as disallowing finance costs as a legitimate business expense for private landlords, but for not any other business of any kind.

Oh! ..... hang on .... that's already happened hasn't it?

" landlords can receive up to a £30,000 if their tenant is guilty of anti-social behavior " - WTF ? WTF ? say what ? Pardon my language Mark but WTF does a landlord have to do with the behaviour of the tenant ?

Exactly, that’s why I went crazy and published an article about it.

I’m out for dinner now but if the wine doesn’t make me forget I will post a link when I get home if I can find the article

Do I get a new wife under these proposals?
Is it a trade-in or an additional one?

There is nothing wrong with two wives - provided they return to their respective husbands during the day.

I have been trying to get the police to do something about the over drug dealing in my area for the last three decades. No action is ever taken, how can a landlord be held responsible when the police refuse to act?
