And the landlord vote goes to - Please vote again

None of the current mob of politicians deserve a vote. However, as Mark has already mentioned Corbyn is a real and present danger. So I too will be casting my non resident vote for the Con’s, but only in the hope of keeping Corbyn out.... Read More

The Alliance is Launched

Previous comment by John Dance is the way forward.
Targeted, Robust, incisive, well reasoned comment is what is needed whilst also pointing up the value and contribution of the PRS to UK plc. This needs well briefed, media savvy, and professionally presentable people. How the cause is presented really matters, forget judicial reviews, and endless costly interventions, spend the money getting the best media people , and most agile and analytical minds advocating for us.

Final call for members

Given the onslaught of misinformation against the PRS, something has to be done if you value all those years of hard work and commitment that has gone into your rental business.
We cannot expect to turn the tide if we do not support some kind of NEW initiative. The existing players NLA/RLA/SLA have failed across the board to influence political thinking. Forget ‘ a stronger voice through merger’ these associations have been around for many years and it’s never really happened, probably for reasons of self interest and ego politics. If a merger were possible where is the evidence that bigger is always better? Bigger is not always better, what really counts is effectiveness.

The Landlord Alliance is a new option for landlords, perhaps the last option. It may also prove to be a turning point, if it can grow, learn and act decisively in the political areana. We therefore must support the best PR training, use the best media gurus, the best research analysis, and get the best PRS minds in business behind this. That’s certainly where I would like to see my pledge spent. It may not be perfect yet or even close, but that is no reason to fall shy of making a commitment and actively helping to improve the concept, quite the reverse. So, time to step up and get Larry’s new machine polished, primed, ready and determined to set the record straight for landlords..... Read More

Proposal to make BTL a time limited offer - Feedback request

Another ill conceived idea, with insufficient incentive after bottom line calculations. Even if it were a good deal which it isn’t, I wouldn’t sell for reasons previously mentioned ie a potential market reaction following rush to sell. I will wait it out thankyou.
So, it will reduce Rental Stock still further, not exactly a bright idea, when there’s already a huge supply and demand imbalance. And no, a building boom won’t sort it anytime soon and even then the so called ‘affordable housing’ will still be way way beyond the pocket of many.
And, of course we can expect the usual bias in favour of Social Housing sales who will of course get the best deals at the tax payers expense, and all at a time when the Gov is crying out for more social housing! To quote a line from a previous post, ‘begging us to help whist stabbing us in the back’ no way to treat a vital sector which houses some 3 million households.... Read More
