Surely I am not the only landlord worried about new EPC requirements?

Having many Victorian properties and running into the same EPC issues, I can see a position unfolding in which many tenants will be evicted and the properties sold - unless of course the government also introduce grants that cover these costs and are workable for insulation companies!... Read More

Surely I am not the only landlord worried about new EPC requirements?

Just as all of the other regulation and general landlord targeting policies, the end result will again be higher rents!... Read More

Private landlords on tenterhooks bracing for yet another attack?

Here we go again....more potential "out of touch" nonsense in the pipeline! Just as the S24 "moving of goal posts" policy demonstrated, it's all about perceived future votes, rather than sound economics. The supporting of holiday lets, at the expense of long-term family housing - further reinforces the fact that the Conservatives clearly could not be trusted with their "making work and business pay" past rhetoric. Time to exit the BTL business I think....!... Read More

S8 eviciton and Notice of claim dilemma?

It comes down to government policy as always. Out of touch polices that aren't fit for purpose, which allow tenants to live for free and without responsibility for anything!... Read More

Landlord Action responds to Government’s further extension of ban on evictions

By extending the eviction ban, it prevents Landlords from giving notice in order to sell during this current buying market window, prior to the March ending of the stamp duty holiday and in turn keeping all tenants in situ - thus reducing the pressures on local Councils struggling to find accommodation - caused by the landlords whom have already exited the business! I could be wrong of course but this is the only reason which makes any sense.

I have a situation in which pre-covid Court possession had been granted and the bailiffs were due to arrive. Then lock-down occurred just a few days before! This was due to worrying anti-social behavior which resulted in the Police breaking down the front door (which I had to pay repairs for) plus severe pre-covid rent arrears running into some thousands. The tenant still remains in situ as of today which is a financial disaster for me and frightening for the neighboring homes, which I'm powerless to do anything about due to the Conservative policy experts!

Good luck those writing to the various ministers, as I found out when having written (pre-covid) to my local local MP, highlighting and warning just how all these new negative policies will eventually impact and very much worsen the UK's housing shortage. A week after writing, I received a response which at first appeared quite positive, with news of it being batted up to the House of Commons.
My hopes were however quickly dashed when a few weeks later I received an update from THC to say they are passing it on to their 'Hot Potato Dept' for review, followed by another letter advising of it being forwarded to their 'Deaf Ears office' and then finally onto their main 'Gone Fishing floor'!! After some four or five weeks of being passed around, a standard letter arrived, answering none of my concerns, but containing nearly two pages about how many new homes the Conservatives have created! This fully restored my faith in the 'making work pay' Conservatives business policy, not!... Read More
