There is increased media coverage of “no-fault evictions” with councils telling tenants to stay put and not move because there is nowhere for the tenants to go. This of course is against current case law, but rental supply has dropped so low that councils have little alternative.
It’s always the landlord at fault in every article, for wanting to sell or convert to holiday lets.
There is never any mention of why the landlord wants to sell or convert from their long-established quality residential letting.
No mention of the toxic attitude from the government removing landlord rights, increased taxation and licencing costs. The recent white paper in England and legislative changes in Wales add to the burden on the landlord.
It’s always the landlord’s fault, never the government for not fulfilling housing targets, and no mention of the government being to blame for selling their council housing stock.
And now the government is wanting tenants to be able to buy their social housing property.
The rental stock will be eroded further, rents will increase and tenants will refuse to move when the landlord wants houses back to sell or live in.
Sorry needed to vent
