Shelter claim 39% of PRS is dangerous or unhealthy

As Benjamin Disraeli said, "There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics."
Shelter are shameless manipulators of statistics to come up with propaganda.
Would those tenants bothering to respond to the 'survey' be happy tenants in top quality, healthy homes I wonder or those with issues, something to get off their chest?... Read More

UC office assisting housing cost fraud?

This should be the new 'PPI'!
"Are you a landlord who has lost income through the mishandling of UC direct payments by the DWP . . ?"
Perhaps if they were looking at having to compensate affected landlords it might sharpen them up a bit.... Read More

Shelter - Private renters are twice as likely to feel depressed

I wonder what % of landlords have seen their income drop as a result of the pandemic?

Many of us are housing tenants who are paying no rent and yet we are still liable for the mortgages of those properties and we still have our own homes to run and families to feed, with no recourse to furlough despite our drop in income. How many of us are struggling to get by?
Has anyone asked how many of us have felt depressed and anxious about our situation?

Government's so-called protection is damaging decent tenants' prospects

I have had a lovely flat vacant for 2 months now, lots of applications but none as yet able to provide a guarantor unfortunately.
A vacant flat is preferable to having to go through the nightmare of having another long term non payer.
All utilities are included in the rent and I had two jokers living free in my flats for many months while on 100% furlough.
Enough is enough . . .... Read More
