Tenants own business supplying lighting to large scale events?

We are going to deal with each individual tenant on a case by case basis. If they have no history of late payments or arrears then our approach would be to offer them a rent reduction of their choice with the balance to be repaid over the next 6 / 12 months.
We are also offering a tenancy surrender under certain circumstances but we are fortunate enough to have had the discussion with our main bank who have offered to extend our overdraft by 3 months rent income. Obviously this will be a last resort for us.
We will have to wait and see how this develops but we will have to try and work together with our tenants.
Our thoughts extend to all of you in these very difficult times, hope your families are well. Try and distance yourselves as much as possible!... Read More

Project to reduce the reluctance to rent to tenants on benefits

Shelter and The Nationwide Foundation should offer Private Landlords a guarantor agreement that they will cover all damages to the property and all rent arrears. As a company we would be more than happy to let to tenants with this security in place. Although after some research into both organisations neither one has ever actually housed anybody so truthfully how can they have any valid opinions on housing matters.
Its similar to asking someone who has never driven a car or used public transport to advise the transport minister on future policy on transportation.
If it wasn't real life it would be comedy.... Read More

Join Shelter's Facebook page and be polite?

I joined the Facebook group for Shelter in wales and when ever I ask questions that are polite but difficult to face I usually get lambasted and attacked personally ( even though none of the commentators know me personally).
However it is interesting to read the posts and certainly worth knowing another point of view even if its not comfortable to read.... Read More

Welsh Housing Minister to speak at RLA Wales conference

This will be very interesting as privately this housing minister is super left wing and positively dislikes private landlords- this minister is still of the opinion that the council housing of the 60s and 70s was the nirvana of housing in the UK
I wonder how challenging the hosts will be to the minister especially as she will say things like
‘Wanting to work hand in hand with private landlords to improve the sector’
Speaking with forked tongue I suspect
More politics in play and we will be the fall guys... Read More

I have the utmost respect for most of your posts to but state that you have shared photos of somebody's private home ( whatever the state) on twitter is disappointing.
This is not a personal observation, all I am saying is take a professional approach and deal with the issue at hand- arrange to get the bathroom cleared, arrange to get the toilet unblocked and all under the eyes of the private sector housing officer . We have no idea what drives a person to conduct themselves in this manner however when you choose to become a landlord you must face the consequences good or bad. As we all know its a difficult job but rewarding otherwise we would have all left.... Read More
