Government plan rewards rent dodgers

The government seem determined to strip landlords of all their assets. A modern day Robin Hood in order to win over public support. Whatever the legend, Robin Hood was still a thief.

Our lifetime savings, despite long hours renovating to provide decent homes, will be gone. If we are lucky, we may retain a roof over our head. We will not have income to pay taxes on.

We tried to sell one of our properties but as soon as the tenant was aware of this he stopped paying rent and told us he would wait to be evicted. So goodbye to at least 2 years rent with probably no hope of getting it back, yet we still have to pay the mortgage and leasehold fees. We cannot sell with a tenant insitu.

So, no income, no support, no taxes, no hope... Read More

There is no mention here of hardship to landlords? Is the NRLA like the government assuming that the landlords have bottomless pockets?... Read More

Safeguarding of rental income?

If I am left with an empty property I will sell. Cannot afford the risk of getting another bad tenant with no back up from the government. No income, no Section 24 or tax to pay, no tenant hassle, no sleepless nights!... Read More

Legal action against Government's lockdown evictions ban

In response to Northernpleb. I am well aware that I am not the only one in this position. I would envisage it is a fair percentage of landlords. If I am reading the legislation correctly, we cannot evict tenants for non-payment of rent but the banks can during a repossession? LL's loose properties because they cannot evict tenants. I would love to sell but cannot get vacant possession. I tried to sell one property with the knowledge of the tenant who promptly refused to move and stopped paying rent. It is a flat so I am still having to cover the mortgage and management fees. I think we would know where we stood if we had a dictatorship rather than an incompetent government that is making LL's the sacrificial lamb. We are going to the slaughter, both financially and emotionally, with no way out. WE ARE NOT BEING HEARD OR GIVEN ANY HUMAN RIGHTS.... Read More

What other business is penalized in this way? Tesco's could take you to court for stealing a £1 loaf of bread, yet landlords have to endure £1000's of losses all approved of by the government.

If I don't pay for property maintenance or safety certificates for a tenant not paying rent then I am fined. Where is the justice in that?... Read More
