Petition against Shelter CEO receiving CBE

This is an example of what is wrong with the system. This individual pockets a huge salary 4xtimes national average. Shelter has a £60m turnover but houses nobody. Furthermore this charity had trustees who were directly involved with the companies who supplied the death trap cladding for Grenfell. To add insult to injury Shelter not alone failed to provide accomodation for Grenfell survivors but also failed to assist them financially unlike other excellent charities. This is all a matter of record.... Read More

Politics and the Alliance

Yes Mick. Shelter will have nothing constructive to say to any landlord. The Alliance approached Shelter when we first set up in order to explore the possibility of them stopping their hate campaign against landlords and supporting delinquent tenants in the courts. Shelter need the bad landlord narrative because without that they would struggle for cash. Every landlord in the UK needs to write to their MP to get Shelter scrapped and their funds directed to front line housing issues.... Read More

Politics and the Alliance

To Forever tenant. Firstly all responsible landlords will sympathise with you if you have suffered as a result of the minority of bad landlords. Shelter are the problem not the solution. Shelter frustrate the court process thus delaying landlords evicting rent defaulters and asb tenants who make others lives miserable. These tenants are eventually binned anyway and all shelter do is to delay the inevitable while costing landlords money they can ill afford to lose and forcing them in many cases to default on mortgages. Shelter are a £60m organisation. Imagine if that cash was directed to front line housing services instead of going into the pockets of Shelter lawyers. The Head Honchos at shelter pocket £720k pa. That would purchase over 10 terraces every year in northern towns which could be used to provide accomodation. Shelters £60m could be put to real use. Instead we have a quasi political set up which mouths off constantly promoting the 'rogue landlord narrative' .Shelter need this narrative to keep sucking cash from Government, local authorities and the public. Shelter promote discord between landlords and tenants. Most Landlords just like most tenants are not rogues. Enough of Shelter. There is a better way to address the homeless problem and one thing for sure, Shelter are not part of the solution. We call upon every landlord nationwide to write to their MP and call for Shelter to be disbanded. Do this now as a matter of urgency. Lets get Shelters cash directed to the needy .... Read More

RLA welcome government crackdown on criminal landlords

The Criminal landlord narrative has been flogged to death. The RLA by bleating about criminal landlords is giving succor to organisations like Shelter the housing charity which houses nobody. Perhaps the RLA/NLA might shout a little louder about criminal tenants. Tenants who live of the tax payer, tenants who wreck property, tenants who use rental properties for criminal activities and tenants who cause ASB. Let me be clear however, unlike the haters who villify landlords non stop , we in the Alliance state that the majority of tenants like most landlords are honest decent hardworking taxpayers. That narrative might not suit everyone.
Finally congratulations to top management at Shelter who trousered over £700k . Nice earner.... Read More
