Home building Stand-off with Government as BTL falls

Is it not like some sort of bad joke.
The £80 billion pound question that should be asked regarding homelessness or inadequate property availability is
How could this government be instrumental in the continuous assault on the PRS sector to the tune of a £80 billion or a 80% reduction of investment over a scant two year period and not expect some repercussions in the system.
In just 24 months investment in BTL has dropped by a jaw dropping £80 billion !
Mainly down to section 24 plus a raft of unexplainable attacks on private landlords
Thank you Gideon Osborne... Read More

550 Zonks a month for a decent 2 bedder in a nice area seems very reasonable.

Reply to the comment left by Mark Alexander at 27/02/2018 - 07:44Thank you Mark, I was unaware of such a system.
Being in the letting business has meant that many hurdles have had to be overcome.
It follows that connecting with a responsible person to take on the responsibility of managing the rent each month should follow suit.
“DSS” payments can be claimed back too of course, if someone has not signed on or worked or worked additional hours etc.
Data protection is often cited by local councils fair enough but as a Landlord trying to chase up non payment of rents doesn’t help.
99% “DSS” ? Check your lender T&Cs you’re probably in contravention of some or part of them.
Btw far be it being greedy Landlords. It’s about equal respect and meeting commitments.... Read More

There are a group of people that take advantage of the system. We all suffer either directly or pay for there lifestyle some other way. It affects everyone and everything eventually. TV programmes quick to jump on the bandwagon have made popular shows about them.

A Landlord database similar to the DVLA where a tenants credit file and history could be called up needs to be put into place pronto
It really is the only way to go.
A star rating would help.
Insurance companies could come on board.
Essentially “if you ain’t on the list you ain’t comin in” 5 star tenants could be like a 999 score on Experian or whatever... Read More
