Welsh Eviction Ban extended to end of June

Matt Hancock has warned the EU of the severe consequences of breaking contract law, in relation to the vaccine orders the UK has with private companies in the EU.
This is sheer hypocrisy from the Government as it has interfered with private landlords' contracts with tenants for the last year, forcing landlords to house non-paying tenants for far longer than contracts specify. Surely there should have been a legal challenge of this.... Read More

Shelter - Private renters are twice as likely to feel depressed

Yes, the remit of the research appears to have been 'let's look at tenants' mental ill health.' No acknowledgment of the mental ill health of landlords with rogue/abusive/non-paying tenants - and of the effect of the Government's permissive legislation towards the latter. Many tenants are causing their landlords terrible stress and anxiety and are completely blase about it and not suffering any worries themselves as they live rent-free for lengthy periods. Where is that put into the equation? - i.e. 'what mental ill health do tenants cause others?' This could also include co-tenants and neighbours as their victims.
It is very poor research practice to only look at one side of things and not put it into any kind of wider context either, but this of course fits Shelter's agenda of demonising landlords and infantilising tenants.... Read More

Eviction ban extended to 31st May

Yes, it is a disgrace how they are treating decent landlords often with deliberately non-paying tenants. They are very generous with other people's money. As Conservatives, they should hang their heads in shame.
Incidentally, there was a Conservative MP on Politics Live a few days ago who actually said he believed in 'rent forgiveness.' That is, that landlords should let tenants off the huge arrears they have in some cases built up. It's fine if he wants to put his hand in his own pocket and pay off someone's debt, but to think he is being kind and caring in suggesting landlords should is despicable. This was previously a demand of the far-left and even the previous Shadow Labour Housing Minister actually pointed out this was a non-starter, legally.... Read More

Telegraph requesting landlord feedback on Budget corporation tax increases

Reply to the comment left by Harry at 06/03/2021 - 14:27
Hi Harry
I'm sure the Telegraph journalist would allow you to okay it first. But I understand how some journalists twist things. The Guardian is terrible for it. I co-operated with them on an article and they made sure they put a 'flash' landlord in front of a posh house and a Bentley - so the photo did more damage to our reputation than any words could do....
