Don't use the 'L' word

I agree it is now a waste of time since so many comments have been deleted after others have responded to them that any sensible arguments made are now impossible to follow.... Read More

I am glad to hear your business dealings are based on mutual respect and commmunication. May I suggest you extend the courtesy you claim to practise in your business relationships to your communications on this site. When Seething Landlord quoted chapter and verse from the Landlord and Tenant Act to support the legal position you were contradicting you replied accusing him or her of being a weird ignoramus! (At least I think that is what you were trying to convey in your two-line post featuring three spelling mistakes and a ridiculous made up word: "landlordees"! People will draw their own conclusions on who is the more deserving of the epithet Ignoramus.)... Read More

Possession claims could double this year

I think the explanation for the discrepancy you mention is provided in the original Landlord Action post which states that social housing providers have not been evicting for two years. You refer to a recent landlord forum displaying the pie chart so it may well be accurate for current evictions based perhaps on figures for the past year. It does not mean it is accurate for historical evictions rates or a reliable prediction of the coming year's.... Read More

Reply to the comment left by Paul Essex at 05/01/2022 - 11:50Do you not think this would invite jibes about PRS properties being small? The term Small Housing Provider is ambiguous. Social media regularly talks of private landlords making a fortune out of "rabbit hutch rentals".
In the town where we have purpose built one-bed flats with designated parking and either private or communal outside space, bathroom with bath and shower, separate lounge and kitchen or combination of the two fitted out with washer/dryers, fridge-freezers, and full cooking facilities, the same one-bedroom LHA rate they attract is also applicable to studios. This has led to a proliferation of conversions of large rooms in town-centre Victorian houses with the addition of a partition in one corner to house a tiny shower, WC and washbasin while another corner is fitted with a sink and cupboard with worktop over and a freestanding cooker, calling itself a kitchen. Such provision is of course a direct response to government policy (lack of social housing; financial squeezing of landlords and broad LHA divisions), but gets all landlords a bad reputation as providers of "small housing". The same applies I know to many commercial to residential conversions.... Read More
