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

Thank heavens for landlords

Good post Mick, certainly highlights the viability and issues of being a landlord any longer and I suspect there's further draconian measures in the pipeline that are aimed directly at us. As I've mentioned before on this forum, due to the governments expert policy makers, I shall soon have no option but to sell up, meaning some 120 individuals will lose their rental homes. I guess this will however help further support the local B&B's and Hotels during the scramble to re house so many families all from one area!... Read More
