10% report same problem 10 times in social homes!

That sounds like a long overdue reform. What is also long overdue is a wholesale revision of our building regs. They are not fit for purpose in a high fuel cost environment. Grenfell Tower was inspected 16 times when the cladding was installed and passed building regs.
Build to modern standards like Passiv House and the need to heat a house is removed. Retrofit properly and you can get near that goal.
If a house is fully insulated, draft-proof, and has heat recovery in the ventilation system you don't need to add heat except in extreme weather.... Read More

Any takers to help Liverpool City Council get it right?

It's like voting ... if you don't vote you can't complain about the result of an election.
If you won't get involved in a consultation then don't winge afterwards that you weren't heard. Get involved and if it is a sham you can say so with evidence to back your view.... Read More

The Times: Misery of families forced to live on industrial estate

Me again
Yes the Journalism is shoddy, that is often the norm (even on BBC News the different between a percentage and a percentage point is often not perceived by the journalist) but analysing a tenant's alleged sense of entitlement on the basis of a shoddy piece is unwarranted. The journalist didn't report the full facts so any conclusions about the actions of the tenant are pure conjecture. Assuming there is a real story here then a real person is being slagged off. Not good! Stick to criticising the journo, the systems and the politics.... Read More

The Times: Misery of families forced to live on industrial estate

Steady on .. a bit over sensitive? Surely the point is the state of Connect House. Whether the Landlord threw them out or waved them off reluctantly with tears in his/her eyes, they ended up in bad circumstances. All those questions will have answers but no reading of what you quote would conclude that this is the previous landlord's fault. This is just some background on 1 of 86 families all of whom will have back stories. The housing market is working badly for many. The family and the landlord are not there to be criticised without a lot more information.... Read More

Serving Section 5 to Long leaseholders

Hi
I had this problem. I wanted to sell the Freehold of a house with 14 flats. Many of the occupiers were the tenants of BTL landlords and had no interest in buying and I felt that the likelihood of the Lease owners putting in a joint bid was very low. I also felt that the threat of them being able to "trump" any bid at auction would discourage other bidders. I therefore split the title so that the area most attractive to others ( a derelict garden flat ) was sold at Auction and I am left with the Freehold and a basement storage area which perhaps the Lease owners would like for a more nominal sum.
cheers
Geoff... Read More
