Guardian accuses Landlords of 'ripping off' Councils

Reply to the comment left by Mark Alexander at 02/01/2019 - 17:50
I certainly agree Mark. It also put a lot of money, albeit borrowed, into the economy by those "lucky" people who utilised their new found equity to have a spending binge. Can't say I blame them though, why not, my kitchen, bedroom and bathroom business did very well from it.... Read More

Guardian accuses Landlords of 'ripping off' Councils

An annoying offshoot of selling off councils houses is that a few years ago someone I knew purchased their council house in a sort after area for peanuts. They mortgaged and remortgaged to buy nice cars, have expensive holidays etc. and within 5 years the house was repossessed and guess what, they were rehoused straight away in another council house in the same village which I know upset a lot of people on the housing list there. They still live there today paying less than £400 per month rent and how many times has that happened elsewhere, lots I guess. Good old Maggie!!!!... Read More

And the landlord vote goes to - Please vote again

I would vote Conservative but only to keep out Mr Corbyn who obviously lives on a different planet with only 20% confidence from his own party. At this point there is no-one worth voting for and you certainly can't base it on a manifesto as they all lie. I just don't get what's going on in politics anymore, are the people running our country really that stupid or just in it for themselves like most people. We've really been conned on this Brexit no matter what side your on, huge amounts of money wasted that could have been given to Shelter to home people, oh sorry, I forgot they don't actually home anybody just beat up decent Landlords to help scumbags that don't pay their rent. I rarely get angry but every day I get a little more p****d off about everything to do with Government, they think we were all born yesterday or they are totally ignorant of the economics of real life. I've had my daily rant thankyou but don't feel any better for it!!!!!!! Agh. where's the bottle.... Read More

I worked there for 6 months a few years ago due to a sudden change in circumstances, in the kitchens section and could not believe how badly run the whole place was especially with stock losses. I agree about abusive behavior to staff, it was terrible. They certainly are not the cheapest.... Read More

B&Q Responds!

Join the club
Dear Mr Leverett,

Thank you for your recent email to Veronique Laury and for sharing your concerns about our partnership with Shelter, which we have raised with them.

At Kingfisher we believe everyone should have a home that they can feel good about and recognise that this is not the case for many people. As a business, we are supporting charities which support this ambition and focus on those most in need of our help. As the leading UK wide charity tackling poor housing and homelessness, we believe that Shelter is the right national organisation for us to work with.

Although Shelter doesn’t provide housing directly, their expert advice can stop a family becoming homeless in the first place - and is also vital in helping people get back on their feet, if the worst happens and they lose their home. Shelter helps millions of people through their expert advice and support.

From our discussions with them, we know that Shelter recognises that the vast majority of landlords are good landlords. They actively work with landlords and the professional landlord bodies to come up with solutions which work for landlords and tenants – for example, giving advice to tenants on how to look after a property so they get their deposits back or in campaigning to unfreeze the local housing allowance.

Our support of Shelter funds a team of DIY Skills Advisers. By offering guidance on basic DIY skills, they support families to settle into a new property after a period of homelessness and help those at risk of homelessness to stay in their current home. So far, they have supported over 500 families to be safer and secure in their homes. Our funding also supports Shelter’s frontline services. We regularly review the impact our partnership is having and are happy with how Shelter is using the funds that we donate.

We hope you will reconsider your decision not to shop in B&Q anymore. Thank you for your custom so far.

Yours sincerely

Jane Walker, B&Q Executive Customer Care Manager... Read More
