Shelter again with latest TV advert!

I've contacted the NRLA to see what they are going to do about it - after investigations and confirmation, if a lodger in an owner occupiers house, they need to take Shelter to hand, or provide correct information to various media sources to squash the mistrust and fear that Shelter are creating in an already unprecedented crisis!

Welcome all landlords who are members of the RLA or NLA to contact NRLA.... Read More

As a decent landlord and along with majority we do follow the letter of the law, treat our tenants well and have a mutual beneficial arrangement.

We therefore do not worry about shelter offering legit advice to tenants, in fact we welcome that to help those tenants fight against dodgy landlords who sadly give the PRS a bad name and create mistrust between landlord and tenant relationship.

We do however take issue with Shelters approach and champagnes as they also harm the PRS and create a negative affect on the mutual beneficial relations between decent landlord and decent tenant.

Their campaigns are very negative towards the whole of the PRS and so likely viewed that way by the Gen population including sadly a lot of renters in the PRS. Breeding mistrust and resentment where there is no reason to be any.

This latest TV is clearly an example of this – they should have made it clear the NHS worked was a lodger in the owner occupiers home and NOT a more formal and very different Landlord & Tenant scenario, which in reality I suspects includes 99% of the PRS.... Read More

Thanks for clarifying - so as someone else posted am I right in saying that this is the case that is used in the Shelter Advert?

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/health/coronavirus-latest-nhs-doctor-evicted-covid-19-oxford-a9425166.html

I haven’t got the Shelter advert to hand, but pretty sure it’s says or strongly suggested the word Landlord and/or Tenant, when in reality a lodger living in someone else’s home is quite a different arrangement, from a social and also a contractual legal way.

Whilst I don’t condone this sort of behaviour (in fact find it pretty disgusting) , especially during a crisis I do strongly feel that Shelter should have made the lodger arrangements clear in the advert as fundamentally I don’t see this as fair example and the word Landlord & Tenant would strongly suggest this refers to the mainstream PRS....

Reading this article, was the “tenant” actually a lodger – so likely to be very different?

If this is in fact true, surely Decent landlords need to start a campaign to have Shelter reported to the advertising standards – they are just creating more un trust between tenant and landlord and fuelling the scaremonger?

"The charity said an NHS hospital worker anonymously contacted its web chat service on March 11. They told the housing adviser their live-in landlord was scared of contracting the virus from tenants and said "they've all got to go" unless a cure is found in weeks".

I’ve got some HMO that I’m considering apply for CLU - have you done this, was it complicated?

Sorry not sure I understand regarding the other properties - they have been rented as HMO but only since Article 4 changes?... Read More
