As far as I know, such a party doesn't exist, but if you want to launch one I'm sure there will be plenty of support for it here.... Read More

As a Landlord in the General Election I intend to vote for:

I voted Conservative in 2017, and have done in every General Election since 2001. This time however, I am switching to the Brexit Party for several reasons.
Firstly, we live in a 'safe' Labour constituency, and Conservative are not getting in round here. If there is to be any chance at all of getting Andrew Gwynne out, the Brexit Party will have to be strong, very strong. Being a 61% leave constituency may help.
Secondly, I don't support Boris Johnson's deal on Brexit as I don't think it delivers what he says it does.
Thirdly, I am clinging on to any scant hope we may have of saving section 21, though I think that may be fading now. All 3 main parties are supporting its abolition, and just because it's happening, doesn't mean we have to embrace it.
I think the best scenario we can hope for is a Conservative and Brexit Party coalition. If Conservative get a majority, they will march on with their policies. At least if the Brexit Party are also in government, there is always hope we could put the brakes on at least for a time.... Read More

Section 8 hearing adjourned due to hospitalisation?

Yes I've had this on more than one occasion.
I never cease to be amazed at what a terrible effect rent arrears seems to have on a tenant's health. I had one tenant who was using this excuse on a monthly basis for about 4 years to delay paying rent, until finally she left when I ran out of patience.... Read More

Selective Licensing costs used for Nottingham Carnival?

This is absolutely despicable. I seriously cannot believe I have just read this. The whole basis of licensing is to improve housing for tenants. Landlords are paying, in some cases quite a high cost for a license which is not meant to benefit the landlord in any way shape or form, but is supposed to be firstly a way of holding landlords accountable in some way to keep their houses in good order, with all the rules and regulations that are contained within the licences, and also for the money to be used for extra housing. In a time of the most serious housing shortage nationwide, for a Council to behave in this manner, frittering money away which landlords have paid to them to improve housing, by doing this is just beyond words. This is absolute theft of landlords' money, gained by deception.
Many Nottingham Landlords have been opposed to licensing in any case with good reason, as the necessity of the scheme has never been proven, indeed it hasn't been proven ANYWHERE it has been introduced, and now we see what they have been up to all along. Can we now expect to find out other Councils are doing the same? I wouldn't be at all surprised. This could become a massive nationwide issue. The police need to be involved in this as this is a theft of people's money and the person(s) responsible should be arrested and jailed. Sorry, but this is seriously an absolutely disgusting crime and I hope the people responsible will get their comeuppance.... Read More

Should she stay or go?

Yes I can see the trickiness of your situation. Of course, had this been the start of the tenancy you wouldn't touch a tenant like this with a barge pole, however with an established tenant it could be different.
There is a lot to think about, and I suppose it at least partly depends on your plan for when section 21 is banned, whether you would then be selling up or have another plan for the property.
For now though, in normal circumstances, I wouldn't evict a tenant on a 'might default' basis. That would be like a security guard in a shop saying 'that person looks dodgy, I'm going to arrest them in case they nick something.'
In the end though, like the rest of us, the scrapping of section 21 will bring down the curtain on any possibility of most tenants staying in any property.... Read More
