Nottingham council to use landlord review website

Presumably the landlord will have the right of reply. There will be many vexatious reviews from tenants who have been evicted because of non-payment of rent and anti-social behaviour. People in this category often feel furious that they have finally been evicted and now have to pay for accommodation elsewhere (until they stop paying there as well). Obviously no-one will be checking on that side of the equation.... Read More

Here is their website:

https://www.rla.org.uk/join/join.shtml?ref=RLADesktop&msclkid=3aeace7ca6e011e2aca993b76f33e295

It costs just under £80 to join. And here is their most recent case that is relevant to you:

Some of us here made contributions and widely publicised the case. Another group we have - the Landlords Alliance - contributed £500 to the case. We could see how important it is that landlords stick together on this. Here is another article:

And this one in Wales, so the law a bit different:

I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. If you're not a member of the RLA it could be worth you joining, as they are involved in a similar case I believe. As you say, this scenario can be faced already with all the 'traps' they've set for us - the idea that you can't remedy a situation where a piece of paper is missing - and have to keep someone forever is outrageous. We surely must be able to get rid of people who aren't even paying the rent...... Read More

As a Landlord in the General Election I intend to vote for:

Also, as I write I can see that 18% of landlords intend to vote Lib Dem.

I don't know if their manifesto is out yet - but I can guarantee that judging by recent ones it will be vehemently anti-landlord - but it has also said it will introduce a 'wealth tax..

This will hit hard those people who are asset-rich but could have very low incomes - especially the elderly. It will also hit landlords hard, because as is obvious, a wealth tax is not based on ability to pay.

Layla Moran said today that the purpose of the wealth tax will be to create a fund so that people who have recently decided to have children can have 'free' childcare. As this childcare will be paid for by taxpayers, many of whom will have paid a fortune themselves in childcare costs already, many people will be in effect paying twice (while others don't pay at all).

This is similar to the 'free' tuition proposed by Corbyn. With that idea as well, some people would in effect be paying twice.

Overall, a wealth tax would hit millions of people who could not afford to pay it. It would be yet another 'confiscatory' tax. How would an elderly person living on a state pension, but in a house worth a few hundred thousand pounds, pay it? Would they have to take out loans, with their home as collateral until they have nothing left?
