Golden Handcuffs?

Thanks for all the helpful comments. I'm most grateful.

I've been wondering what my best argument could be. I came across the
Consumer Rights Act 2015 and EU Directive on Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts. To me these seem to point clearly in my favour, but perhaps I'm missing something?

Have you any experience in using these arguments perhaps?

Get your question answered by Iain Duncan Smith

Hi Tracey,

You'll have lots of data regarding Clause 24, so here's something else for you.............................from what I can tell, there seems an increasing trend among local councils to introduce some type of licencing scheme for landlords. The benefit is advertised as reducing problem tenants. However, while the councils receive fees, there are few positive impacts for any other involved party. Landlords who pay the fees, for example, have not reported any support from councils for the problem tenants and associated actions.

Surely there must be more efficient ways to achieve the goal ?

For example, we already have a ARMA, ARLA, which should be professionally run agencies with a wealth of experience. Would it not be more efficient to merely ensure that any landlord who receives rents from vunerable tenants (ie where the tenants do not pay the rent themselves) also employs either ARLA or ARMA?

I'm sure that any experienced landlord would be able to come up with a number of excellent ideas of how to tackle this issue. The current trend of licencing, in my opinion, is ridiculous and almost any other idea generated would be an improvement for all interested parties.

Good luck!... Read More
