Fergus Wilson's response to BBC Panorama

Sorry, this may not be the right place to post this - just in from 38 degrees.
Dear friends,

I just signed the petition "No one moving onto Universal Credit should be left worse off" and wanted to ask if you could add your name too.

This campaign means a lot to me and the more support we can get behind it, the better chance we have of succeeding. You can read more and sign the petition here:

Can you also take a moment to share the petition with others? It's really easy – all you need to do is forward this email or click these links:

BEST PRACTICE - letter template to go with eviction notices

Its a great pity that all that information and guidance is largely ignored by local authorities and furthermore the Judges that make the situation even worse with their unbelievable judgements which together lead to it taking at least 7 months to repossess a property using the miss-named Accelerated process i.e Section 21..
This sad outcome is costing Landlords £1,000 's and leading landlords to leave the PRS and others to not take on Housing benefit applicants (or at least those without a home-owner guarantor)... Read More

HS2 Compulsory Purchase - Have you received your payment?

'They went against their word' : 'Didn't even get the price they promise us' : '3 months from sale (completion ?) and no payment'
Something really wrong here, surely completion should only happen when cleared funds are made available ?? You did use a solicitor- didn't you ?
I think that the buyer would normally be liable to pay interest if payment is delayed . Sounds like a bit of a mess. Hope you can get it sorted.... Read More

UNFIT - Fitness For Human Habitation Act 2018

Wow ! Thats a good start to the New Year.
Seriously, what can we as 'good' landlords do to make sure we don't suffer any problems with this ?
I would suggest that, as usual, we keep a regular eye on our properties. respond in writing to any issues raised by our tenants and get the remedial work carried out promptly. I guess the question most of us face is the 'damp, mould' issue. Various ways to tackle this. Advising use of ventilation, not drying clothes on radiators etc. etc. Also it seems that some councils have a booklet on the subject that is available (they give this to their own tenants). I'm sure there are many other suggestions . How about at regular check visits we get our tenants to sign to the effect that they are happy with the condition of the property.. ?
Happy New Year !... Read More
