Should landlords have the right to refuse DSS tenants?

Reply to the comment left by Dylan Morris at 23/05/2019 - 08:34Well put Dylan, the key word in PRS is ' Private '
Similarly, political comments or suggestions about interfering with Rent controls has your same analogy.
When Sainsbury's costs in fuel or any regulatory compliance increases, the price we pay for a loaf of bread increases.
If anyone suggested imposing limits on what supermarkets could charge for a loaf of bread, we'd think they were 'half-baked' or else if enforced, pretty soon there would be shortages of bread. Or else, build state-owned bakeries (Houses )
Replace Supermarkets and bread, with Landlords and rent - and keep the word 'Private' in mind.
Above is a free tip for Government, as they seem to be sorely lacking in business acumen.... Read More

Where is the 'Coercion'- I haven't seen it ?
This is an open forum where anyone can post their views. Obviously someone's point of view is more valid if they give reasons for their opinions, but I can't see that as in any way ' coercive '... Read More

Landlords Alliance - Emergency Euro Elections Statement

I would say that there is a ( limited range ) of political opinion amongst Landlords, and ordinarily, I would agree with Mark's point in that Landlords representatives should be a-political.

However, given the onslaught landlords have seen from this Tory Govt in the past 4 years or so, I've not heard a single landlord come to or be able to defend them. In fact, quite the contrary. I've heard of Stalwart Conservative supporters distance themselves in the strongest possible terms. The only worse thing we could imagine is Labour. That has brought landlords to really consider their strategic voting. Its not so much about Remaining or Leaving, but for very many landlords - 'Surviving' ( unless we join Mark of course, and that's been a topic of debate also ) So my view, and everyone has their own, is that I don't know what the details of Brexit party policy are, but I'm drawn to them as Farage is a businessman and their better than the other options.

Of course we're talking about the EU elections and before the Bx party formulate detailed policies that allow more consideration of supporting them in a G.E.
I read a wide section of 'industry ' blogs, Property Industry Eye, Landlord Today, Letting Agent Today, Property Reporter as well as numerous other sources. There is a great consistency in comments with the argument put up in this post.

Renting isn't the only consideration in voting, but if you think its the activity in which the majority of your finances are committed ( which I suggest it is for most landlords ) then it will form an over-riding factor.... Read More

Understand your comments Mark, and don't disagree, BUT, tomorrow - Landlords will be voting for someone and a vote for a party other than Tory or Labour HAS to be the ONLY way for landlords. ( I don't think there's any disagreement from Landlords about that. )
Farage is a businessman, which is more than can be said for the rest of them - not forgetting BoJo's recent comment ' F**k Business.'... Read More
