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. Amelia, I'm sure you have a balanced view but there is plenty of evidence of Shelter publicly vilifying landlords and tarring us all with the same brush because of a minority of toe rags within our sector. 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

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

Landlords Alliance progress report

I agreed with Larry from the outset. We have nothing to lose, not even £100 as once that is given, it's offset in your tax return - more than your mortgage payment is!
Larry may not tick all the boxes and his approach may be a little unconventional but ...what are you doing about it? ... no, I thought as much, so come on give him a little help and if he (we) doesn't achieve everything then at least YOU did something!
Of course there's always apathy ... how's that working out for you?... Read More
