Theresa May announces she will ban section 21

Reply to the comment left by Appalled Landlord at 15/04/2019 - 17:04
What sort of evidence of wishing to sell might be accepted? I written statement from the LL? A contract to sell with an Estate Agency? Photo of a For Sale sign outside the property? What happens if the property doesn't sell because the market is flooded with everyone else flogging off their dead horses? Will there be a minimum length of time the property needs to be for sale (empty and costing us money) before we can choose to re-let it?... Read More

Theresa May announces she will ban section 21

We need to get some real stats to support our cause that could hopefully dispel the misinformation being touted by the various factions. I know there are bits and pieces out there but it is is now becoming urgent if we want to get the truth across before the government bungles another piece of vote-winning, ill-thought-out legislation. Therefore, I call on all the landlord organisations to work together to obtain some concrete figures and propose that research is undertaken that covers: how many properties we each have, with on average how many tenants; how many S8s served; how many S21s served (how many of these were for a breach and how many due to sale or moving back in); average length of AST; how many properties you've sold since S24 and what % was due to the government making changes to the PRS; how many properties are you planning to sell due to government changes in the next 1, 2 and 3-5 years. The results would hopefully rebut rhetoric like "tenancies shorter than gym memberships", "S21 is the main cause of homelessness" and "no fault evictions" and provide real evidence of the unintended consequences of the government's dabbling with an industry they obviously don't understand. I'm going to make this suggestion to RLA (as I'm a member) but would be delighted if colleagues could encourage their organisations to work on this too.... Read More

Paul, our mortgage conditions state the maximum length of a tenancy I can offer is 12 months. The decision is often not down to the landlord. I have assured our tenants that if they do not breach the terms of their AST I'm very happy to renew their tenancy ad infinitum.... Read More

Why do landlords carry the blame for intentionally homeless tenants?
