Landlords Revenge

Just for information my portfolio is based in the north east. If anyone has seen our local news lately, since the introduction of universal credits some local authorities here are running rent arrears of £130,000 per week. Before that local authority tenants never had the rent paid directly to them, the local council simply paid themselves. Interesting how they thought it was ok for private sector landlords to wear the pain but not themselves. Look at them squeel like pigs when they have had these measures imposed on them by central government. Don't misunderstand me i take no pleasure in this, i don't want anyone to wear the pain but it is a graphic illustratoin of the bias in favour of people who never have and never will try to do anything with their life but who are happy to take from others (their landlord) who they think has an endless supply of money. Their sense of entitlement is stunning.... Read More

Landlords Revenge

Anthony Endsor / Philip Allen,
Couldn't agree more with your comments. I was a landlord for 10 years before i ran into problems. What, did i suddenly forget what i was doing? It leaves one quite disillusioned. Some people live a charmed life. Others don't. Best wishes guys.... Read More

Landlords Revenge

Dear Andrew,
Thank you for your kind comments. It is not my intention to get into any kind of argument with you or anyone else but having said that i don't need you to point out my mistakes or errors. I am well aware of them myself. I must say you are wrong re the water bills. Nonetheless i wish you well with your business and your life. My comments were not about you personally, but about a type of person who sees kindness and patience as a sign of weekness, so i don't understand why you chose to attack me personally, as there are many sets of circumstances here about which you know nothing and yet you feel free to criticize.This is the only extent to which i will engage in this discourse with you. I will know better than to contribute in the future. Good luck, i wish you well.... Read More

Let's be honest these type of people (tenants) are just rubbish. Debatable whether or not they can even be called human. To make matters worse the law is totally on their side and against the landlord, from biased deposit protection laws through to universal credits and everything in between. There is a simple truth here which is this: people are feeling the pinch financially but they can't, for example, hope to leave the supermarket with their groceries without paying. They can't not pay their gas and electricity bills, not for very long anyway because the utility company in question will simply fit prepayment meters if necessary. So guess who is at the top of the list for not getting paid??? Yes, the landlord. And these people (the tenants) know it takes us months to get rid of them. One final point: does everyone know about the law passed a few months ago which entitles the water supply companies to claim from the landlord water bills left unpaid by the tenant? (someone has obviously been lobbying hard in Parliament) Can you imagine that when this becomes common knowledge which it undoubtably, will how many tenants will pay their water bill? That's right none. Thank god it is only a recent law and not retrospective as i had a tenant just leave a property after five years, no rent arrears, property well maitained, great landlord tenant relatiionship, so all good. Yes, except that on opening the post after he left i discovered he had a water bill outstanding for £4500. Yes you read it right £4500. He had never paid a water bill in all the time he had been there. If that had happened now i would be liable. If that happened at every property i own i guess that alone could near bankrupt me. 24 properties x 4500 = 108,000. Frightening. I have seen it all this past 15 years in this business. Rotten business and rotten people. In case that sounds naive my background was 20 years motortrade, 10 with my own dealership and 5 years with my own Upvc window company, both very successful. What an eye opener.... Read More
