The flawed Call for Evidence over Tenancy Deposits

Reply to the comment left by Luke P at 09/07/2019 - 13:26
This part of the legislation is already ridiculous. Surely the most important thing is that a gas safety certificate is in place; not that a copy was given to each tenant on a particular day. Paperwork has become more important or as important as the substantive issue. That is so wrong.... Read More

The flawed Call for Evidence over Tenancy Deposits

Yes, Ian. Bringing over the obstacles/loopholes the Government has incrementally introduced into the way of serving Section 21 to Section 8 could mean non-paying criminal tenants gain the right to remain in your property forever without paying the rent, because you gave them the EPC a day late or even gave it to them, but didn't get them to initial that they had received it. In fact, any tenant who knew of a small administrative error in their tenancy could do this.
It makes a mockery of the justice system in the UK, which already now contains ridiculous conditions for private landlords.
Such a farcical move would have to be the subject of an urgent application for Judicial Review. This time though we would need lawyers who can win for us and the landlord organisations had better put their hands in their pockets more speedily and willingly than they did with the failed application for Judicial Review on s24. They should be getting their thinking caps on now and leading the way on this, given their resources and their ostensible aim of supporting landlords.... Read More

The Dirty Dozen

I would add that although I appreciate we landlords are famously frugal it is important that people pay the £100 to join the Alliance. Larry and others in the Alliance have some great ideas re getting publicity and putting a strong case against central and local Government interference and some of this costs. Even if you feel you're doing okay and somehow may be immune to these attacks, we should stick together.
So do the best thing you can do today or this week and join the only landlord group which is 100 percent for landlords (and not affected or infected by other commercial interests).... Read More

The Alliance Housing Policy

This is an excellent, balanced and rational housing policy. I am looking forward to it being endorsed by the other landlord bodies and also to it being presented to the Conservative Party and the Brexit Party for their consideration.

There is no point showing it to Labour (although it should be sent to them anyway) - they have welcomed a Marxist report (they call it 'independent') at the moment which would take away private property rights and attempt to crash the housing market and the wider economy with it.

In that context, it is even more essential that we have clear messages like the one above.... Read More
