Landlords Alliance under laughing stock ICO investigation!

Re the National Landlords Alliance and local authority licensing schemes. Just in case anyone is unaware and so that it might be our suggestion for the way forward, I am a registered landlady in Scotland and it costs £50 every 3 years (up from £30). All Scottish landlords have to be registered to comply with the law so that means that apart from the rogue landlords (who are not registered) the Scottish authorities can find out the contact details for any let property and get on with the business of telling them off (or whatever). If this were to be adopted in England it would be cheap for the landlords, the cost would cover keeping the register and any fines upon landlords go back to the local authority and would bring in the money for them to deal with more rogue landlords. Simples! Let's adopt this approach!... Read More

Shelter Social Housing Commission calls for 3m new homes over 20 years

This is attributed to housing minister James Brokenshire in this article:-
“Our ambitious £9bn affordable homes programme will deliver 250,000 homes by 2022, INCLUDING HOMES FOR SOCIAL RENT. A further £2bn of long term funding has already been committed beyond that as part of a ten year home building programme through to 2028."

So! In addition to not being a sufficient number of homes, it doesn't tell us HOW MANY SOCIAL RENT HOMES are going to be built. It also doesn't tell us how many more are going to be built and the proportion of those which will be at social rent going on to 2028.
Another thing it doesn't tell us is whether the "affordable homes" that are going to be built for people to buy can actually be afforded by them because I have seen articles about "affordable homes" not being affordable to most of the target audience.

Now I could say I don't care - but I do. The other aspect is that I am a landlady and I am sick of this government (and everybody else in the mix) trying to make things right by causing me a lot of pain and grief.

The government could actually achieve quite a lot by educating tenants about damp, cold, condensation, ventilation, buildings breathing and all that sort of stuff and then maybe not so many tenants would move out "because it is damp"

They could also actually get a joined up plan on a nice slow timescale that landlords and other people (councils) can actually achieve, with a provision for feedback so they can give it a nice tweak when needed and AND MAKE THE WHOLE DAMN THING WORK!

As it is - I give up!... Read More
