Shelter again with latest TV advert!

Your story is at odds with the actual report

The other case involved a paramedic.
Shelter's ad is at the very least disingenuous as it deliberately seeks to use a less than truthful soundbite to vilify landlords. If the ad explained that this was a case of a landlady sharing facilities with a lodger I suspect the public reaction would be more considered. Many, many people would see both points of view....

Government have created chaos in the PRS

To be fair, did they have any choice? Social landlords aren't able to evict either and lenders aren't allowed to take possession for 3 months. How would it have looked if the PRS landlords body bleated that we wanted the right to literally put men, women and children on the streets in the middle of the worst crisis to hit for generations? Viewings not possible, agents only working from home, removal firms have closed etc. How could evicted tenants possibly find somewhere else to live? Its just the harsh reality. It would be better to lobby the government to fast track the evictions that had been started prior to the crisis, as soon as the lockdown ends.... Read More

No Rent For Buy To Let Landlords

I understand your frustration. All landlords are being adversely affected in way or another, However, I think it would be naive to assume that the current state of play is the final word from Government. Importantly, while a significant number of small landlords have sold up, the number of rental properties available has apparently stayed broadly the same because larger landlords are buying up the properties at a discount. There was a report on this quite recently, though I can't remember who did it. What we are seeing is more and more lower income families and benefit tenants being unable to find accommodation because the neither small nor big landlords are prepared to take the risk.
Also, my take would be that a) the lockdown will extend way past the initial 3 weeks, b) the ban on evictions will very soon go to 6 months (as is already the case in Scotland) and c) Government will continue to push initiatives to increase the number of owner occupiers and aim to further reduce the size of the PRS...

Martin Lewis, on his show last night, said that students had a contract with their landlords, and if students left the accommodation early, to go home, it didn't release them from their responsibility to pay the rent.... Read More
