Shelter again with latest TV advert!

Marie - had the advert by Shelter been honest in describing the doctor as a lodger this thread would not have been created. It is the manipulation of the facts which is the gripe.... Read More

Marie. Not disputing what now is clarified that the case portrayed relates to a lodger. The point is that the advert implies the doctor was a tenant being illegally evicted, thus vilifying landlords. This is very different to the arrangements with a lodger. The advert obscured the full facts and is thus considered immoral.... Read More

Delay to Energy Efficiency regulations in Scotland

The plan was for regulations to come into force 01 April 2020, but due to late "approval" by Scottish Government the implementation date was recently set as 01 Oct 2020.

Shelter again with latest TV advert!

Extract of response from Shelter in response to complaint:
"Please be assured that the case study of the person featured on the advert is genuine and we wouldn’t want to rouse any anger or disgust against genuinely good landlords.

They contacted us via our advice services and we helped to advise them. We advised the doctor of their rights in this matter and what the law says. Many people have been calling us worried about being evicted and we are able to support them by letting them know what their legal position is and how they can respond to their landlord(s)".
So as noted on a previous comment, it relates to a Lodger but not clear that the doctor had actually been asked to move out.... Read More

Shelter again with latest TV advert!

Looked at GOV.UK website for Complaining against Charity and this refers back to ASA. Perhaps need to complaint direct to Shelter by email at info@shelter.org.uk or if in Scotland shelterscot@shelter.org.uk... Read More
