Well, that got your attention didn’t it!
But is it such a crazy idea? What if landlords got together and started a charity that helped the same people that Shelter and Crisis claim to. Fundraise the same way, from the public.
But a charity that underwrites rent and deposits for those that we wouldn’t normally consider. Those that have ended up on the street through no fault of their own, the ex-service person, the unemployed, the homeless with nobody to turn to.
Help those already in our properties that hit hard times, help them get the financial support they need, so they can pay us.
But instead of being aggressive towards landlords, working with them, covering the shortfalls until benefits kick in. Having advisors on hand to solve and push through their benefit claims issues.
Go on, discuss!
