Shelter blame B&Bs on private landlords!

A darling of The Guardian!

I am always puzzled as to why holiday lets have remained immune to the government's BTL ravages. Holiday lets actually do a lot of damage, especially in rural communities where second homes have driven up property prices and removed availability for low paid workers.

Works carried out without Landlords consent?

Sadly, you are stuck with having bought a leasehold property, and it is likely your solicitor did not advise you of the implications. Those in the freehold 'lobby' argue you should have read your lease, but you pay a solicitor for their expertise and to advise you correctly. Unfortunately, it rarely happens. Less so when the solicitor is recommended by the developer.
It may feel like you are alone in this, but you will gain support by joining the National Leasehold Campaign on Facebook. Together with the Leasehold Knowledge Partnership and the All Party Parliamentary Group, they are driving leasehold reform.... Read More
