Fergus Wilson Panorama documentary - now available on iPlayer

When I heard Fergus was going to be on Panorama I expected it to be a hatchet job and it was.

Shelters agenda was played out in full with Fergus cast in the role of the bogeyman. Jeremy Corbyn tweeting he is going to come to the rescue to save poor tenants.

In his newspaper article following the programme it would appear that Fergus thought his view of the problems facing landlords would be shown but they were cut out.

At the end of the day he can’t win if he keeps his properties he is criticised and if he sells he gets criticised.

Shame on the BBC for dancing to Shelters tune and fanning the flames of the current anti landlord rhetoric.... Read More

Shelter's Income and expenditure figures highlighted

Vincent Company is setting up a homeless charity.

He probably doesn’t know there is already one receiving £20 million of government money.

The reason that he doesn’t know is because rather than help the homeless Shelter prefer to pay Champagne Socialist large salaries to slag off the PRS.... Read More

Hi Yvonne I think that for most student landlords it will still be business as usual.

The first point is their is no exemption for Student landlords. Annoyingly purpose built student accommodation and university accommodation is exempt. There is the option for landlords to let to the University who can still do fixed leases.

So far the amount of student properties that have ended early are very low but they do prove a real problem to relet.

This will be the first year with the new legislation for student accommodation and whilst before we used to know about this time what students were leaving this year we haven’t really heard back from them.

I do though think the market will adjust and it will be ok.... Read More

That’s correct before government interference rents were rising below inflation now they have skyrocketed especially in Edinburgh.

I have a friend who rents a property from their mums friend she doesn’t comply with any regulation and lets them do whatever they like with the place and doesn’t put their rent up.

When my friend tells other tenants about this they are all like wow I wish we had that. At the end of the day what tenants want is somewhere safe, convenient and affordable. By over regulation the properties are safe but not affordable which means people might then have to commute do they aren’t convenient either.

The anti landlord lobby in Scotland have really made life a lot harder for tenants.... Read More
