Hi Ian,

Indeed fingers crossed!

Are yes good point, if I do get another direct reply from the MOH I will amend my comment.

Thanks for the link – I will have a read of the report when I get chance.

Sadly finding government change after change and poorly actioned consultations are so time consuming to a Landlord who genuinely cares about his rental business and his tenants... Read More

Lib Dems vote for Section 21 ban

Previously I’d been in correspondence direct with the Ministry of Housing

Feel other HMO landlords should also be questioning why so many HMO’s and landlords have been “overlooked”?

NO RECOGNISITION OF HMO IN S21 CONSULATION DOCUMENT – FLAWED CONSULTATION?

My question on 2nd August:- Can the Q&A support document be updated to encompass shared HMO (licenced in particular), ensuring that this large sector’s feedback can be encouraged to be gathered and also easily analysed on receipt?

Ministry response on 4th September - We are exploring updating the document so to explain how the changes will interplay with joint tenancies, to help landlords understand how this will affect them, including landlords of HMOs.

Extract of my final response to Section 21 consultation:-

- Despite your response on the 4th Sept, as far as I can see no updates have bene undertaken? (nothing listed on the revision page) – so basically HMO and shared rentals have been completely ignored in this consultation?

- In the following government document, there were an estimated 497,000 HMOs in England and Wales at the end of March 2018. http://researchbriefings.files.parliament.uk/documents/SN00708/SN00708.pdf How is it possible that this ½ a million rentals have not been recognised, or their landlords even encouraged to reply to the consultation?

- When we spoke you suggested that the consultation document had been targeted towards “single household rentals” and HMO landlords could just use the “other” free text boxes.

- Other landlords I have spoken to and I would question the validly of this consultation process when HMO and shared rentals have been excluded and it is very difficult to understand how it will be possible to accurately analyse the “other” free text boxes that HMO landlords have had to use?

- Whist we hope sincerely hope that scrapping S21 is not a foregone conclusion, considering the above, we do question if it has just been rushed out in an incomplete form, somehow looking to win political votes with Generation Rent and supporting charities such a Shelter?... Read More
