The myth that landlords can evict at a moment’s notice

Reply to the comment left by The Forever Tenant at 14/11/2019 - 12:06
I agree with Luke P. - your first suggestion would be welcomed by most landlords. However it would need some modification to obviate the risk of tenants gaming the system by entering into an initial six-month tenancy, when the landlord cannot serve notice to quit until four months have passed, then never paying any rent beyond their first month in advance. Quite a few landlords of mortgaged properties could be bankrupted by losing eight or more months' rent plus bailiff charges and probable repairs and cleaning costs followed by a void period before a new tenant moves in....

Conservative Right to Buy test?

Reply to the comment left by Kathy Evans at 11/11/2019 - 13:09So far, Kathy, you have been the only one to point out that many of us outside London don't have any capital gains or at least our gains don't exceed the CGT allowance. This inconvenient fact never seems to enter the consciousness of those who dream up housing policy. And, as SM points out, many of us need the income from our rental properties to supplement state pensions now or in the future. My total pension is £5,700 (state) plus £1,350 (personally funded, not employer subsidised) yet all I hear from Generation Rent is how privileged I am at their expense, and pensioners have stolen their future! It always seems to be that those who make sacrifices to provide for their own future are penalised to subsidise those who spend every penny they get.... Read More

The spending pattern you describe for what you describe as the lower class is not one I recognise in our tenants. Without exception the contents of their homes are newer, bigger, better than anything in ours; not to mention frequency of holidays and eating out.... Read More

Manifesto from Generation Rent Et al

Reply to the comment left by AP at 09/11/2019 - 08:45
When I read this Express article I understood it to mean that they were paying interest to the Labour Party as the lenders for the initial purchase of the properties, which of course is a tax-deductible expense for limited companies. The whole set-up is by the Labour Party, through the Labour Party and for the benefit of the Labour Party and exploits every tax allowance available without breaking any laws.... Read More

Reply to the comment left by Kathy Evans at 09/11/2019 - 17:50These days many youngsters start school at four (the "rising fives") and tens of thousands of quite mediocre students have dumbed down the university intake, courses and degree grades. I don't know your age, but you seem to be comparing today with a very different time when higher education was for the brightest few and not the masses who had to earn their living from fifteen or sixteen. We are all paying for this change, and not just in NI conributions. It started, I recall, under Labour, as a good wheeze to bring down the horrendous youth unemployment figures.... Read More
