John McDonnell back-pedals on Right to Buy

McDonnell just trots out the usual shameful Marxist rubbish,youd think 150million deaths in the 20th century would make them rethink,or maybe they think its worth another try.Anyway private landlords appear to be the modern day kulaks,because obviously anyone who has a crumb more than someone else is clearly a greedy tyrant exploiting the poor for personal gain...

Council threaten after uncorroborated nuisance complaint?

Thanks for your advice.I bought the house 6 years ago off the sons of the lady who'd lived there many years.I introduced myself to the neighbours as I had become aware of the type of estate I overlooked and the old lady ( I guess about 65,not ancient) next door kindly offered to keep an eye open and text me with any concerns,which she did.Having completed the renovations I let the house to a young family.The old lady had various issues with them, and those that followed, and now this one.I told her she would need to make her complaints official as I couldn't take action on her say so even though I was sympathetic. I naively believed the council would conduct an impartial investigation.The properties in the immediate locality are privately owned and council properties occupied mainly by older people and as mine is a three bed semi, families are the likely tenants and I wonder if this is the root cause of the problem. Future tenants are also likely to be families and if this tenant is evicted,it could be the start of repeat actions until I let to a quiet elderly lady who satisfies the locals requirements.That may take a while...

Council threaten after uncorroborated nuisance complaint?

first of all,thank you for the helpful advice.I emailed a response to the council saying both sides appear to have grounds for complaint and I want a solution which is fair to both sides. If following investigation my tenant is shown to be at fault,i will take action,but im not comfortable evicting her without it,I also said I had cautioned the tenant,which involved making her aware of the complaints and suggesting mediation..I forward all the emails from the council to the tenant and also my replies.Today I received a written response from the council.They say that the fact I issued a caution and acknowledge there is a problem is proof I accept my tenant is at fault and neeed to take steps and the letter concludes by repeating the previous threats.In conversation with the council woman previously when I mentioned the neighbours dogs she said its her job to act for council tenants and dogs barking don't constitute a nuisance. when I questioned whether there may be some exaggeration over the complaints,one complaint was that my tenant noisily got out of a taxi,she said council tenants don't tell lies.I feel their actions is designed to bully me to evict the tenant and save them the need to prove the allegations.This particular house is difficult to let.it overlooks a notorious council estate,whenever its empty it gets broken into and the last tenant moved because her children were bullied constantly by the local thugs.This tenant likes the house,keeps it spotless and pays her rent.unfortunately shes doesn't fit in,having said that I will evict her if shes making life difficult for others,but I must have the evidence...
