1,000 a day contact Shelter

I imagine the help received goes along these lines:

Client: I desperately need somewhere to live.
Shelter: I'm very sorry to hear that.
Client: Can I stay in one of your hostels?
Shelter: We don't have any.
Client: Well can you sort me other accommodation?

What do changing EPC and heat pump requirements mean for the PRS?

Hi Melissa
A big question is how will landlords be able to definitively work out what work will bring their energy rating to a C. This is by no means clear. They could spend a lot of money only to miss the C rating by a point or more. Also, who on earth will do all this work? Where are the tradespeople to do this and how will they sort out 3 million homes in a short space of time? What will they charge - since they will know they have landlords over a barrel? If landlords can't do the work in time then what will they do? Evict their tenants or face huge fines? What if they can't get possession of their properties and the tenants out in time - especially given all the additional obstacles the UK governments have put in their way? One could have a rogue tenant who won't leave putting the landlord in the position of facing a huge fine for housing them without a C rating. I'm sure others can add to this huge range of problems that the Westminster Government seems to be oblivious about or frankly, just don't care about.... Read More

If you own a second or holiday home Wales is coming for you

In cases where the landlord tries to gain possession of the property, but the various UK governments are preventing them through long notices, closure of courts and long waiting lists etc., then perhaps if the tenants are still in situ at the given date - despite the landlords' best efforts - and the EPC isn't at C, the governments can fine themselves £30,000 per property as it will be their fault that properties are occupied when they shouldn't be. They can also congratulate themselves on huge B& B bills, as landlords evict en masse.... Read More

Hi Luke
I've not seen that anywhere. As far as I know, the leap is straight from E to C.... Read More
