Shelter again with latest TV advert!

Reply to the comment left by Shelter at 02/04/2020 - 16:58Whilst Shelter is on here, Greg Beales said he was ringing me a year ago, still waiting. This was also in a public post with Paul Shamplina on Twitter this week. And again still waiting.
And I don't really want to call Shelter as I REALLY REALLY like to help HB tenants having housed thousands of homeless over the years. However my HB UC tenants can no longer leave me cause of policies that Shelter has endorsed & supported. I'm sure if they worked with good landlords, we can together tell Govt & Councils & DWP & UC & Licensing etc., Look tnis really ain't helping tenants, all u doing is pushing costs up to get at 200 bad Landlords & help 200 tenants, 19800 tenants have suffered & are now paying more rent (an example I have)....

Landlords need to understand Universal Credit as tenants sign on

Reply to the comment left by Clint at 03/04/2020 - 17:41
I don't believe so Clint. As daft as it is, the DWP & Govt would just like to keep wasting money instead of paying the Housing Element rent part of UC direct to Landlord so this Taxpayers money can be used for what it is intended for, shelter for the tenant.
Quite often, 3 months arrears can build up.

I was one of the fortunate few who are in the Online trial which Sherrelle so kindly first told me about. It is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. It's an online version of UC47 if u didn't know. It takes about 96 seconds start to finish, no doing that terrible UC47 form that gets lost that u can't email in to an email address without going on English course to decipher the instructions to decide which email address u can use.

So Clint, keep pushing DWP for all Landlords to get on that. And have u any idea when that can happen Sherrelle?

Here was UC47 instructions till I got this changed:

Thank you for your enquiry.

Is the stage for a strong rebound once the shock passes?

Yes, that's what they all saying, when this is all over, we could in for good growth.
So me not being an economist, but know a little bit, I'd say to Landlords Don't get carried away with these low interest rates we have if u on a tracker. Either overpay to bring the balance down, so subsequently, the interest £'s amount they require will be lower next year, or save the money elsewhere just in case.
Don't blow it on a Ferrari or Lamborghini.

Look after your tenants, they look after u. And u can buy the Lamborghini in years to come when you've paid your mortgages off cause you've been loyal to your tenants & they've been loyal to u.... Read More
