If you can believe them - and also assuming the Marxists don't get in.... Read More

Tenant Reform not to be retrospective?

I have also been in communication with Mark Lambert and am pressing him for reassurances that an error by the landlord which precludes them from gaining legal possession under the souped-up s8 will not enable non-paying and/or abusive tenants from being able to stay forever rent-free in our properties. So far I have just been thanked for 'sharing' this point. I have asked him now to take this back to his team and work out how to avoid this as it would be an outrage to natural justice and likely spark a legal challenge against the Government. It would be good if others could write to him with the same point so that mine is not a lone message.... Read More

Scrapping Section 21 will trigger a rise in homelessness

I would add that the new RLA/NLA organisation has to change sharpish and come out unequivocally against the scrapping of Section 21. This week they have published an article on their site by a Liberal Democrat peer, calling for the abolition of Section 21 and even a 'first right to buy' in the PRS - which could mean anything and is dangerous in its vagueness (it could mean for example the tenant's right to buy at a reduced price). To post this article on a landlord site, with no critique as though it is RLA policy is wrong on so many levels. Please get your act together. You are supposed to advocate for and work on behalf of landlords; not against us.... Read More

NRLA merger vote passed

Earlier on today, I gave my opinion on the piece on the RLA website by the Liberal Democrat peer, Lord Shipley. For some reason it hasn't appeared/has been deleted. I wonder if the RLA is only happy to leave comments which are uncritical. My comment for the record was:

'Why is the RLA posting an article which argues for the abolition of Section 21 and also a vague 'first right to buy' policy? The abolition of Section 21 is going to be catastrophic and is a severe attack on landlords having control over their own private property and what they do with it. It is the thin end of the wedge. And what would the 'first right to buy' mean? Tenants are already free to put in an offer to buy any house they want. They have this right. Would the Lib Dem version be like the Labour one - that the landlord has to sell the house at a discount? This is an outrageous attack on private property rights. I really don't think that the RLA should be posting the arguments from the 'other side', however nicely and politely they're dressed up.'... Read More

Section 21 abolition stinks!

That's a very unsympathetic response. Presumably when you face difficulties you enjoy that kind of reaction from others - telling you you've made your bed etc. Luckily most of us are not like that and we are supportive - otherwise being a landlord would be completely intolerable given the issues we face and the additional war on us from the Government....
