Shelter warn of older people 'stuck in expensive PRS'

Many sides to homelessness but a major one is the shortage of social housing. Councils’ stock of housing has reduced massively due to RTB. Tenants can sell up after 5 years and bank a windfall in cases up to 70% of market value. Why would Councils think building more homes is a good idea when they have to sell them a few years later at knockdown prices (possibly less than the build cost). No wonder there’s very few new council homes being built. Why would you ?... Read More

Removal of Section 21 Housing Act 1988

I have a friend who contacted me over the weekend for some advice as she’s looking to move to another part of the country for work (she’s employed by the NHS) maybe for 12 months. She’s looking to rent her house out on a fixed 12 months tenancy. I’ve told her that in order for her to regain occupancy of her home after 12 months she will need to serve a Section 21 notice as a minimum 10 months into the tenancy, as at least 2 months notice has to be given. We then had a discussion regarding the situation if Section 21 is removed. My take on this is that she would not be able to regain occupancy EVER as without the ability to serve a Section 21 she cannot end the tenancy. Am I correct ? If so this would prohibit somebody like my friend renting her house out in future on a temporary basis if the Government go ahead and remove Sec 21 ?
My friend then raised an interesting point (which I was a little unsure of answering) in that would the tenancy end after the 12 month period if she didn’t service a Sec 21 (or the ability is removed) and the tenant simply complied and left the house on the tenancy end date ?... Read More

Gas boilers to be banned from new builds by 2025

The amount of daylight in winter is half we receive in summer so cannot see solar panels being much use in winter the season where by far we need the most heating. More bonkers policies from politicians who seem to live in a parallel universe.... Read More

Should I sell or risk tenants buying at undervalue price?

Reply to the comment left by Whiteskifreak Surrey at 30/09/2019 - 09:31Sorry for any confusion. I’m replying to Colin saying I don’t know of any mortgage lender at present that will grant a 100% mortgage to a First Time Buyer. As far as I am aware they all demand at least 5% deposit most asking for 10% (assuming Colin wasn’t referring to RTB which is different). Also as far as I am aware Help To Buy only operates where you purchase a brand new property from a developer (min 5% deposit required).... Read More
