I think Shelter ought to try building some bridges with landlords.
Shelter only usually get to hear about bad landlords and that’s not healthy for their perspective.
Their constant drum bashing about “rogue landlords” doesn’t do Shelter many favours in terms of the perceptions of GOOD Landlords towards Shelter either.
If I was in charge of PR at Shelter I would hold a GOOD Landlords competition whereby tenants could vote for the UK’s best landlord and explain why. That way, Shelter’s perspective of landlords might change and they would have a blueprint of what makes a good landlord from a tenants perspective. Better to be able to have a clear target in the sight before taking a shot.
What do you think?
