No Rent For Buy To Let Landlords

What these people do not understand is that the lenders will need a 100% proof that the rent is not being paid due to COVID and that the landlord has exhausted all ways to get a mortgage (including guarantors, who may well be part of the 80% salary governmental scheme). If that is not provided there will be no mortgage holidays. The banks will repossess and the tenants will have to go anyway.... Read More

Hi JJ,
whilst not disputing your excellent comment at all, I wanted to ask one question: What is your source/proof of the statement "It's also quite hard to over-eat"?
As far as everyone on social media / friends / co-workers from home etc are concerned - 'over-eating' is absolutely the easiest thing to do in the current situation. I am talking from experience too... Any proof of that statement will be highly appreciated and I will spread the word/tips around.... Read More

Thanks for that. We have our insurance via P118. I did not have time to check the T&C though. We just cannot let the students go and stop paying rent. They have their stuff in the house. How are they supposed to do the final cleaning? No sane provider will come to do over and window cleaning! We maintain the property, installed timers, pass it every other day to check if it is OK, attend to the bins. The Uni is just crazy to compare themselves and shareholder LLs with very small ones like us.... Read More

You are so right Jessie, I have already mentioned that to student as that is going to be our additional cost. BTW we already lowered the rent 20% for them, but they want more.... Read More

No Rent For Buy To Let Landlords

This is the University of Surrey plea to Landlords. They assume all landlords will have a free mortgage holidays...
==quote==
The pandemic, which is currently touching all our lives, has caused huge turmoil for all sections of society. A University, by its very nature is a family of academics, researchers, professional support staff, alumni and of course students.

The University of Surrey family has been tested to its limit, and will no doubt have to endure much more over the coming weeks and months as this virus continues to spread. Families do of course come together in times of crisis to support each other, and the University is no different. Over the last few weeks, there has been a tremendous effort from all to continue the endeavours and academic mission of the institution, as well as provide scientific and practical support to our local NHS.

However, the effect of a national lockdown is severe, and many of our students have left to be safe with their own families either at home or abroad. This was not a circumstance that anyone could foresee when embarking on a new academic year. In these exceptional circumstances, the University of Surrey has recognised that it is entirely understandable that our students wished to leave their accommodation early and will not be able to return this academic year.

The University has therefore cancelled all rent payments due for term 3 for over five thousand students in University managed accommodation who have chosen to leave early.

Not all students are able to be accommodated by the University however, and there are private landlords and providers who have not yet taken the same action to cancel rents for students who have left. It is indeed disappointing to see that many private providers have chosen to prioritise their shareholders over their student occupants, especially in light of the support being given by the government in the form of mortgage breaks.

We are today calling for all providers of student accommodation to follow our lead; do the right thing and relieve Guildford’s students of the obligation to pay rent for empty rooms.
