Should landlords have the right to refuse DSS tenants?

Reply to the comment left by Mick Roberts at 23/05/2019 - 07:11
Very good explanation, Mick - the 'wear and tear' angle is clearly a legitimate argument, which can be evidenced. We can therefore say that 'on average' tenants who are likely to be home all day and who have children will incur greater costs for the landlord and the more children, the greater the cost....

Thanks, Monty. That's a very useful example. Shelter will deny the truth of this - probably call it 'prejudice.' You could show them the family's lifestyle and hours spent at home and they would deny the usage of the house was completely different for the two categories of tenant.
It also occurs to me that with larger families this is likely to be exacerbated. Landlords should also have the right to therefore choose a smaller group of tenants if they want to. No doubt this will at some point be a target for their 'taking over' of our private property and our right to choose to whom we want to hand over the keys to our expensive asset.... Read More

I thought I could choose not to work and just receive money from the state ( i.e. from the taxes of those who did work). I was also an anti-nuclear activist. I have different views now. I think anyone is entitled to change their opinions as they get older. In fact, it's a good thing and also rather weird if their views as a twenty something person remain set in stone.... Read More

Explain what the ultra right wing agenda is that you refer to. And why would Claire Fox stand for a party with such an agenda?... Read More

Landlords Alliance - Emergency Euro Elections Statement

Hi Whiteskifreak.
Unfortunately, there are no other alternatives. All of the other parties are against landlords - the Lib Dems, the Greens, the SNP, Plaid Cymru - they're all out to get us and most have extreme anti-landlord policies to match those of the Tories and Labour.... Read More
