Mandatory HMO licensing to be extended

Hi Rob
It was the only option avaialble to me mainly due to the lack of anything else being available when I needed a room. Good point about a small but nice room in a good house. The rent was low which enabled me to save for a deposit to buy a house. It took two years of saving every penny I could. Worth it though as my wife and I now have four houses, three of which are let.... Read More

Mandatory HMO licensing to be extended

I'm not against a statutory minimum room size. I have lived in a very small room in the past and it's not a nice thing. That said, why are LA's allowed to put vunerable families into tiny rooms just because it's called a bedsit! Perhaps a change.org partition is needed to force the government to change social housing regulation as well........dream on!... Read More

Landlords Union Slams BBC Panorama Report

Here is the pointles reply I have received from the BBC following my complaint. I'm not dissapointed as didn't expect anything else!

Dear Mr pearce
Thank you for contacting us regarding Evicted for no Reason: Panorama, which was broadcast on Wednesday 21st February. We understand you feel the programme was biased against private landlords and was misleading about Section 21 evictions.
The programme featured the stories of three people who were in the process of being evicted, or who had already been evicted, from their homes under the no-fault Section 21 process, which allows landlords to evict tenants, without declaring a reason, at the end of an assured shorthold tenancy.
The programme’s main focus was tenants and not landlords. This is because the private rented sector now houses one in five people in Britain, whereas landlords represent a much smaller proportion of the population.
We felt it was important to include landlords’ views and explain that most British landlords only let out one or two properties, and that many landlords feel section 21 is an important protection.
This is why as well as featuring tenants’ experiences we also followed the story of a private landlord who was having difficulty evicting a late-paying tenant, and visited landlord Landlord Action, a company which helps landlords evict troublesome tenants. Landlord Action explained the different reasons why a landlord may wish to issue a Section 21 eviction, that most tenancies go well, and that there will typically be a reason that a no-fault eviction notice is used, such as rent arrears or antisocial behaviour.
We spoke to the landlords / letting agents of tenants featured in the programme, as well as neighbours, and looked at documentary evidence in order to establish the background to the cases we included. Where landlords told us the reason they were evicting their tenants, this was included in the programme.
As an impartial broadcaster, the BBC aims to carry a range of views on the issues on which it reports. In doing so, we hope to be able to help our audiences to make up their own minds on the subjects we examine. The views expressed by contributors to our news programmes are their own, but we would always aim to question them appropriately. We believe that our programme showed both sides of the story, and the consequences of a Section 21 eviction for both tenants and landlords. However we’re sorry you feel this isn’t the case. Please be assured that your comments have been passed along to the programme team.

Kind Regards
BBC Complaints Team... Read More
