Dan Wilson Craw laments the human misery that his demands would increase

Great article. Dan Craw and Shelter ( with more than a little help from George Osborne) have done more to make people homeless than any landlord by constantly attacking the PRS. The homeless chickens are coming home to roost - but they have no roosts to live in.... Read More

No mention of PRS attacks

Shelter only need to look in the mirror to see who has been one of the biggest contributory factors to the housing shortage. Their incessant attacks,along with those of Generation Rent, coupled with an anti- landlord government and portfolio stress testing has decimated supply. Who wants to be a landlord today?...

Charges to tenant on early termination of tenancy?

If entered into before 1st June the admin charge is legally enforceable. In the absence of them paying the £250 perhaps they would like to pay the full cost of the remainder of the tenancy which they are legally liable for? They can't have their cake and eat it. LL has agreed any early termination but with that comes additional lettings costs. Even under the TFB then £50 is allowed - which is a joke - or "reasonable costs". It takes around 17 hours for a new tenancy to be completed with viewings. taking holding deposits, compilation of the tenancy agreement, serving the How To Rent Guide, protecting the deposit and serving the prescribed information, serving the gas and epc certificates, doing a legionella risk assessment, preparing an inventory ( a digital inventory done using something like property inspector on a 2 bed house will take at least 6-8 hours if done properly. So £250 is a bargain.... Read More
