RLA welcome Zoopla 'No DSS' ban

Is the RLA trying to lose members? Makes me wonder if it has been taken over by Shelter. This is utterly false. Please tell me what protected category under the anti-discrimination legislation this falls under. You won't be able to because it there isn't one. It isn't discrimination.

While the public perception of landlords that has been created is negative, that does absolve Shelter from it, actually would be evidence against them. If you replaced 'landlord' with any other group in some of their statements, they would be seriously questioned and their would be outcry. Why is it ok to do it to landlords, could it not be construed as "hate speech"?... Read More

Is Shelter liable for criminal activities?
