NLA accuse Government of 'not being bothered' to help Landlords

Don't think this is an oversight by this government. It is waging a war on landlords, presumably thinking that we have nowhere else to go (Corbyn's Labour, Libdems, Monster Raving Loonies?) and hoping to pick up some cheap credit with the BBC and the like. Even the NLA (of which I am a member) has managed to express strong criticism in public.
Do councils, housing associations, etc. face the same requirements?... Read More

Estate agents trying to steamroll busy students?

Rubber Roofing system - Lender & Insurer views?

I have used a PVC material on two flat roofs -- one a shed attached to my garage and the other on a flat area of roof on a holiday cottage.

Both roofs came with a 20-year guarantee and both were fitted well over 20 years ago and have given absolutely no problems.

New Landlord Association seeking pledges

Please count me in. I am a member of NLA. It does a good job at disseminating information, landlord training, and I accept that it has access to senior civil servants and occasionally ministers to work for us behind the scenes; but Shelter seems to have convinced this government that it is a bone fide housing charity and the government is increasingly taking its line. So there is a pressing need for a more vocal high profile organisation to make our case. We work our socks off and put our personal wealth at risk to provide homes for about 20% of all households in the country and we are persecuted rather than thanked. Of course there are some "rogue" landlords, just as there are "rogue" ministers, "rogue" MPs, "rogue"civil servants (lots of them if my experience is typical), "rogue" local councillors, etc , etc....
