End of the Road

It was suggested at outset of this post that Mark & Neil might care to set up a proper landlords' representative organisation via Property118 to do the job the NLA etc patently don't perform. Mark has explained quite reasonably why he would not be part of it as anyone who knows him would expect and completely understand. I posted earlier that it was unfair to put him on the spot after what he has already achieved for us. Yet urging the establishment of a new body continues without any of the urgers volunteering at least to do some donkey work. This is not uncommon, sadly, in most walks of life. "My idea now somebody else do it!"... Read More

Larry's post is spot on in all respects. As to Property 118 taking over from NLA/RLA to represent all landlords effectively it would be great if it happened but a truly massive undertaking for Mark & Neil. Bear that in mind please. When this forum was set up post the West Brom splendid victory some of us lobbed in a tidy sum to form a fund for fighting similar actions. Mark reminded me recently two such actions have been successfully won hence the funds used were regained via costs awarded. There is therefore some money in the pot but how it is used is really up to Mark. I've no idea how the numbers of members of this forum have grown since its inception. Those who wish to post are invited to donate but it is not mandatory otherwise I believe membership is 100% FOC. I wonder how many Property 118 members who use and benefit from Property 118 have never lobbed in any money at all? Maybe everybody should as a start base for any change in what Property 118 does and achieves like being a representative body for all landlords?... Read More

Granting an ordinary lease?

I am truly grateful for the wise advice received. I was most certainly not aware of some of points mentioned although believing what I suggested would likely be possible. Particularly well worth being aware, as I was not, that a tenancy of over seven years absolves the landlord of his repairing obligations. I wonder how many landlords & tenants know that? This forum proves the old adage that it is not what you know but who you know that often counts these days. Thank you.... Read More

Discrimination in the rental sector

Reply to the comment left by Whiteskifreak Surrey at 22/08/2018 - 09:05
The reply to Whiteskifreak from Shelter contained the comment "we’d encourage landlords to shop around to choose a lender who doesn’t unfairly restrict who they can let to". So they expect landlords currently with lenders who do not allow lettings to HB tenants to effectively re mortgage with all the cost and hassle involved so they can let to HB tenants who will then possibly not pay rent owing anyway. I'm pinching myself that even Shelter could suggest something like this.... Read More
