My Open Letter to Shelter who are calling for Section 21 to be banned & prosecuting Landlords who don't take Benefit tenants

If you google, read the 2019 public consultation, the FAQ's covered a lot of items like that. Although it might of changed, think that’s the bets reference we have at present. Think it said something like, if wanting to sell within 2 years, you had to have previously given the tenant notice of this prior to them moving in.

The NRLA CEO has also gone on public record saying that lack of S21 wont make any difference - totally selling its members down the river.

Clearly they are getting on board the political train – looking to tender for ‘Rent Smart England” we suspect – shame on you!!

Any NRLA members be wary – this is YOUR CEO!!!!???

Any member of the concerned about Section 21 being scrapped. Here is the CEO of NRLA says it’s fine, will be no different 😱

Please jump to 16.03 mins of video to see the NRLA representation of scrapping Section 21.

Full video here from the recent public accounts committee

After that Video, plus things like partnering to places like B&Q, who then in turn donate money to shelter I can’t see how we as members are not being sold down the river and when you call out the NRLA - National Residential Landlords Association on it they just give lip service responses or choose to ignore the difficult questions...

I would 100% agree on that too. My comment was more to highlight that the serious lacking on the past consultation and the need for another that clearly recognises and describes correctly the PRS landscape and ALL its subsectors....otherwise these consultations are just lip service!... Read More

Wil there be another formal government consultation for the general public?
The one a few years ago was very flawed (likely rushed out) and nowhere mentioned the word HMO!?
Having spoken to the lady involved in the consultation publication, she suggested HMO landlords “just use the OTHER box” to feedback their comments and said "the consultation document was more aimed at the single occupier rental market, not HMO".
Unless the Governments proposal was to exclude ALL HMOs from the scrapping of S21 (could have been suggested for student rentals?) then it’s clearly a very flawed public consultation and considering the size of the HMO market very short sighted.
HMO rentals are a very different animal to a single occupancy rentasl and S21 (or equivalent) is a vital tool for honest landlords to provide safe and well managed HMO, as without decent tenants and their landlords will carry considerable more risk from bad and antisocial tenants living in shared HMOs...
