Even more worrying requests by the Select Committee

I think the 'Shelter as Guarantor' message is a fantastic idea. I have cut and pasted this from Shelter's website re Guarantors ..

"Some councils and charities have rent deposit, bond and guarantee schemes that:

give cash to help with rent in advance and a deposit
act as a guarantor service and cover unpaid rent or damage up to a certain amount ..."

... yes Shelter, and some charities DO NOT!

I reckon if all landlords take up this suggestion via their agents and respective websites it might cause a stir!... Read More

Shelter ask for Landlords views

I suspect this 'Approach' from Shelter is a guarded response to the National Landlord Alliance being formed and making it publicly known that Shelter are in their sights.

Call me sceptical but just as Larry n the rest of us are making headway with certain issues, Shelter now want to engage with us ... yeah right!... Read More

Should landlords have the right to refuse DSS tenants?

I don't see how we can be forced to offer anything to anybody once we have carried out our risk assessment/tennant enquiry!

If I went into my local BS or Bank for a mortgage they would carry out an affordability check. We, as PRS landlords are only doing the same thing. I can't go to Shelter et al. and complain that ABC Bank Ltd won't offer me a mortgage because I am on benefits!... Read More

Section 21 Ban - Government Consultation and Press Release

I can't believe this paragraph towards the end of the article ...

"Court processes will also be expedited so landlords are able to swiftly and smoothly regain their property in the rare event of tenants falling into rent arrears or damaging the property – meaning landlords have the security of knowing disputes will be resolved quickly."

... the rare event .. it's not so rare as politicians speaking the truth and keeping their promises!... Read More
