Another TV Programme!

Perhaps Fergus, insist on seeing the edited version before they air it this time. Hopefully you could highlight the two opposing forces at play, with local gov desperate for social housing to the point of some Councils having to offer cash incentives to the PSL, whom in turn many are looking to exit the business because of the onslaught of anti landlord policies by central gov, such as Rosalind's point with S-24 plus the whole shopping list of other policies which are causing rents to now increase, leaving vulnerable and HIB people with less and less homes available. Giving tax incentives to holiday homes whilst placing vulnerable people in bed and breakfast is strangely something the media of course don't highlight. Instead of taxing and red taping PSL's into the ground, tax incentives should be made to those landlords providing quality homes and even those able to build new homes for rental.

Ever since George Osbourne launched his 'moving goal posts' policy of S24 on existing BTL mortgage commitments (rather than applying to new BTL finance after that date) I like many landlords have lost both faith and trust in gov and unless Boris makes serious urgent change will likely end up evicting my own vulnerable tenants, some of which have disabilities and mental health issues in order to sell up.

Good luck Fergus.... Read More

Selective Licensing review shows unwillingness to listen to Landlords

Isn't it strange how schools, the NHS and care authorities have for quite some time been reporting how they've been virtually abandoned due to Gov Brexit distractions, yet the Gov 'Steer private landlords into the ground dept' continues at full tilt! What it's really about is short term stealth taxes and perceived Tory votes!... Read More
