The Alliance position on Section 21

My apologies Ian for the "rand" reference. I am South African so occasionally default. All stats stated are in GBP. But as the ZAR is over ZAR18.00 to the pound you can imagine how huge my losses are in my currency! Add my compounded two year eviction period and my subsequent no rental due to my adamantine refusal to house another tenant and you may begin to appreciate why I am exiting the PRS in the UK.
MoodyMolls kindly replied to your further request for substantiating my referral to the PRS's collective losses. This amount is referred to on many news sites.... Read More

The Alliance position on Section 21

The unethical "gatekeeping" that Shelter, CAB and local Councils consider mandatory to prolong a tenant's freeloading stay in a property whilst withholding rent also needs serious intervention. Landlords lost over GBP 9 billion rand in unpaid rental last year and I can testify to being one of them owed over GBP20 000 by a tenant, advised by the above, to willfully and intentionally remain in my property until such time as the bailiffs removed her. I will probably never regain those losses as will neither over 80% of other landlords equally so dismally treated by the present legal system. Defaulting tenants thus pocketed over GBP 9 billion rand last year. The organisations mentioned above saved as much by making the PRS responsible for housing those same tenants.
My unit has now been empty for over a year. I refuse to accept another tenant under the present legislation. I prefer paying my mortgage without a non-paying tenant in situ aided and abetted by biased anti-landlord legislation.
And I am determined to sell my properties without ever housing another tenant.... Read More

Increase housing benefit and build 3 million social homes

Reply to the comment left by Rod at 22/08/2019 - 09:20Yes. Polly Neate, aka Shelter, appears impervious to the mounting social housing shortage they are creating. Alienating landlords as they do by providing "advice" that ensures a tenant becomes homeless and unwanted by the PRS, let alone destroying the credit history of non-paying tenants by encouraging them to have CCJ's granted against them, appears so counter-productive.
But Polly has an agenda. Apply diversionary and divisive tactics to redirect anger towards the PRS so that no-one actually questions Shelter and their egregious role in that mounting shortage. Or why Shelter and their overly paid minions is actually necessary.... Read More

They are an organisation so biased against landlords that anything they claim and "substantiate" with "statistics" should be considered spurious.... Read More

Increase housing benefit and build 3 million social homes

There can be no doubt that Shelter are solely responsible for fomenting the escalating attitude of self entitlement in tenants on benefits. They are also at the forefront of demanding increasingly discriminatory anti-landlord legislation.
The nightmare tenant I had to endure who skillfully hid her benefits status and rental history is a case in point. During the eight months it took to evict her Shelter offered her scurrilous advice on how to remain in situ whilst the eviction process trundled laboriously through the Court. The result was almost a year of no rental, a completely trashed apartment {including all the furniture}, a CCJ awarded against the tenant, the local Council stopping all further benefit payments after I reported her illegal claims and a landlord who has refused to house another tenant. The local Council was made to be financially responsible for the tenant as a minor child was involved.
All of this could have been avoided had Shelter provided sound advice ie pay your rent, look after the property, pay your utilities and foster a good relationship with your private landlord in order to avoid becoming another "homeless" statistic where the options for being housed are limited.
I can think of no other organisation in the UK who deliberately manipulate the truth in order to remain relevant and thus the recipient of vast amounts of money. None of which actually houses the very people they consider the "victims" of "rapacious" landlords.
I have developed an intense antipathy towards anything Shelter claims. It's so far removed from reality as to be delusional.... Read More
