Abolishing S21 without S8 fully 'fit for purpose' will have dire consequences

Reply to the comment left by Mandy Thomson at 20/04/2019 - 11:02
The government press release certainly included reference to adding selling or moving back in to the existing S8. I regularly search for comment from the SDP or Westminster on the operation of the new Scottish tenancy and ending of no reason evictions. There is almost nothing out there, which leads me to conclude that no positive outcomes are being seen. The Housing Tribunal appears to overwhelmed, but apart from that updates are very thin on the ground... Read More

Section 21 - Emergency meeting and joint delegation

I think that's a great idea, because there is so much misinformation out there. You need a thick skin mind. I engage a lot with tenant groups and individuals on social media and the language can get, well a bit flowery, at times:) I'm currently sharing David Smith's video

on tweets and posts from tenant groups in the hope people will view it, learn about why S21 is used, and ask questions. We do need to bear in mind though that the renters union type groups are radicals, their actions can border on the illegal and their anti capitalist stance precludes any balanced debate....

New - National Trading Standards Estate and Letting Agency Team

Rightmove has today published data showing that rental supply is down across the country, Huffington Post saying rents are up in almost every region and The Times reckons that the buy to let crackdown is fuelling a boom in holidays rentals as banks are swooping in to offer mortgages for them. So, its all going swimmingly isn't it!!
On the subject of this new Trading Standards Agency, I'm not convinced tacking lettings agencies and estate agents together is necessary helpful, and how did Bristol Council get to host it?... Read More

Section 21 - Emergency meeting and joint delegation

David, I am actively supporting those individuals and organisations who are working on behalf of landlords. The Alliance isn't one of them. I cannot see how the obsession with Shelter, B&Q, then with the ICO has done landlords any favours at all. Nor how attacking, vilifying and publicly insulting the NLA and RLA has gained the Alliance any credibility. I find it difficult to envisage a meeting with government ministers, where the NLA and RLA introduce themselves and explain their stance and then the Alliance explains that its prime focus has been to tweet daily insults about the biggest homeless charity in the country, call for its 'overpaid' CEO who has 'trousered' a big salary to be sacked and accused the charity of failing the victims of Grenfell by not providing sausage rolls. The NLA and RLA are also happy to publicise how many members they have.
I hope that explains my feelings.... Read More

The NLA and RLA would have to be mad to align themselves with the Alliance. Not going to happen... Read More
