Commercial Rent (Coronavirus) Act 2022 ends government interventions

Thanks, team for sharing this article.
My plan is to continue including a 3-month break clause whilst issuing leases contracted outside of the LL & Tenant Act 1954 (as amended). That way if the tenant(s) stop paying the rent in any future pandemic-as mine did in this one, whilst doing very nicely with their internet sales - the threat of not renewing or being given 3-months notice might help them realise their obligations.
Notwithstanding, of course, that there will always be genuine cases of hardship.... Read More

Shortage of rental properties so extreme tenants are refusing to leave?

Reply to the comment left by Darren Peters at 25/04/2022 - 12:28
If you want it to get scarier, Google the following. Labour's plans for the private rented sector.
Here's a little taster.
The Conservatives have turned a blind
eye to the pressures England’s rapidly
growing number of private renters
are facing. They voted against Labour
plans for longer tenancies and secure
rents, scrapped Labour’s plan for
a register of landlords, watered
down legislation for councils to
license private landlords in their area
and rejected Labour amendments
to their legislation to bring in legal
minimum standards for private
rented properties.
If Labour ever get voted in, we're in bigger trouble than we could ever imagine. Look back in history.... Read More

You'll never be left with a dead duck. Sooner rather than later all cars will be EV s - I have three in my household already.
Nevertheless, generally, you don't need to have a specific charge point installed. We've been using a 13 amp point for the last 2.5 years - plug in at night, full tank in the morning. So just get an outside power point installed.... Read More

Yes, the government is trying to cull the private rented sector, and IMO for good reason.
Of course, given the opportunity, Labour will remove it altogether.
Robert Mellors says that higher rents will need to be charged; that's where rent control will kick in. Flashback to the late 60's when I started off. I was quite happy to have a lower rental income with good capital growth even though interest rates were super high.
Landlords currently have high rental income, historically low-interest rates, and substantial capital growth.
Talk about cake and eat it.... Read More
