EPC inaccuracies could leave properties let illegally

There is no value. No one wants them - Just government! but as usual we just sat on our hands and watched it coming. The government should have spent the time and money on incentives and grants etc to raise efficiency. In other words ‘carrot’ not ‘stick’.... Read More

EPC inaccuracies could leave properties let illegally

Its also the farcical conclusions EPCs come to. I have flats which EPCs state by doing XY&Z - bills will reduce by X amount. This potential saving is more than the actual typical bills! The maths and assumptions used in working out ratings is miles out and not fit for purpose. Yet we are all still legally required to pay for them and Tenants ignore them. As the requirements over time get hiked up this will all become an even bigger headache. I wonder what the net value is of all this when you take into account things like offices and all the training centres and hundreds of EPC experts driving around all over the country?... Read More

S21 ban: Should straightforward possession cases be decided out of court?

One scenario never mentioned is when a property is a holiday let during summer and offered as a winter AST for 6 months. A common idea in tourist coastal areas. This kind of arrangement works well for tenants who like to travel / live in vehicles / boats during summer but want a warmer home for winter. It also suits people who just want somewhere short term for a variety of reasons. Winter only rent is usually much less. Presumably this will end. Landlords will just leave empty. The coastal villages / towns often moan about so many empty holiday homes to the detriment of village life and services (pubs / shops). There are so many reasons why a property owner should be able to control who if anyone is in their property.... Read More

Labour would end Permitted Development

42000 more badly needed dwellings then. Thats 42000 more than Labour would allow? Oh hang on, they would rather spend our (tax payers) money to build high quality luxury pads to give out for free to all those doler / waste of space dossers who have never done a days work in their lives. - Because they are ‘entitled’ to a nice place to live. Meanwhile all those office space building would be left empty. Who the hell will vote for that? Oh yes - the work shy dossers!... Read More
