Government says it will 'end injustice' with new deal Renters Reform Bill

Reply to the comment left by Anne Nixon at 11/05/2022 - 20:41I have rented from corporate landlords when I lived in America and can say they are a no nonsense, strictly business, money making operation. For tenants everyone will be credit checked and referenced, there will be zero tolerance for late rent, zero tolerance for ASB, zero tolerance for breaking any rules, nothing will be negotiable, there will be no breaks for a tenant, everything done by the book. Tenants are going to find it a different world.Tenants without a solid credit history will out of luck
Although BTR is popular with the younger crowd it is not for everyone, especially older tenants or families. Im hoping the traditional landlords will still attract those who want to live in a normal property and perhaps a traditional double bay Victorian terrace with period features in a nice part of town will become trendy or even exclusive!!
Our future will be to offer what the BTR does not, ie something different, more personal not corporate, more privacy, less crowded living experience, period features and with your own back garden etc.

I think the reason the anti landlord rhetoric seems to be universal is because it must have been a high level Tory Govt policy decision. The decision being to push out the traditional BTL landlords in favour of the corporate BTR landlords. There has been a continuous Tory Govt since David Cameron in 2005, therefore it has been easy to develop and maintain this particular policy. The official, but secret, policy then would have been a full spectrum effort, ie MPs, HMRC, Local Government, Main Stream Media, tenants groups such as Shelter & Gen Rent, increased energy efficiency etc.
It is a well coordinated War on Landlords with a defined and intended goal of a drastic reduction in private landlords. This is intended to hand the corporate landords millions of desperate customers with nowhere else to go.
Anyone who makes comments such "when is the Govt going to listen to us" or "does the Govt understand the damage they are doing" etc is completely missing the point. The Govt will never listen to BTL landlords and fully understands the damage they are doing to the PRS. The Govt does not care one bit about either landlords or tenants, we are just collateral damage in their war on the PRS to make it corporate friendly.... Read More

The governments hidden agenda is to turn the existing PRS landlords into social housing providers with the worst tenants and for the new build corporate owned Build to Rent housing to take on the better behaved and more affluent tenants.
This is a project the government has been working on since at least 2014. The first shot fired in the project was in the 2015 budget which changed the S24 tax rule into disallowing mortgage interest to be tax deductible for private landlords but not for a CORPORATION. Every other attack on landlords since has been in support of that government hidden agenda.
Shelter and Gen Rent are simply undercover government propaganda outlets designed to whip the country’s media and renters into an anti landlord frenzy.
Ask yourself a simple question, when have you ever known the government to take such zeal and interest in aiding the welfare of a particular group of ordinary citizens, such as tenants, and at the same time attacking another group of citizens, such as landlords, without some hidden benefit to themselves the government?
Now that the government hidden agenda is crystal clear, the question every landlord should be asking themselves is how bad does it have to get before they sell up?... Read More

My Open Letter to Shelter who are calling for Section 21 to be banned & prosecuting Landlords who don't take Benefit tenants

Reply to the comment left by Mick Roberts at 11/03/2022 - 10:26Dear Mick, did you not get the email?
There is upcoming government legislation to make it illegal for a Landlord to retire.
Landlord has to work until age of 90, unless Alzheimer’s Disease or Heart Attack gets him first. Eldest child of Landlord then has to continue the business. If no child available then Landlord is considered to have committed a civil offence and will be sued by Shelter, Gen Rent and LA for failure to provide services to future unidentified potential tenants who have been deprived of a future potential home.
Sentence could be an unlimited fine.
Also potential criminal charges of defrauding the future unknown tenants out of a home.
Sentence could 10 years imprisonment and unlimited fine.
If Landlord can’t pay, after guaranteed loss in Court, then his properties are confiscated and legal ownership transferred to the Local Authority.
So there you have it, the future predicted.
Even George Orwell never thought of this.... Read More

Our city is facing a rent crisis

Reply to the comment left by Jessie Jones at 03/03/2022 - 07:42Agreed, the benefits of rent caps are only to the relatively few tenants who are already in a rent capped property. As with Berlin the same effect was found in San Francisco plus non rent capped tenants had to pay more rent to compensate for the reduced amount of available properties as the “lucky” tenants became hoarders and would never move out.
If we combine rent capping with the abolishment of S21 evictions then the Bristol PRS, for both landlords and tenants, will really be in a pickle.
Really the only sensible solution to a shortage of homes is to build more of them. First start with allowing LAs to build their own housing.
