The National Landlords Alliance does not advocate contravening legislation so where the law says that ‘No Dss’ ads contravene equality legislation we must not use the terminology.
Now for some straight talk. Shelter have campaigned for the abolition of S21, in effect eroding property owners rights. Shelter with their Million pound budget have time and again refused to bond benefit tenants preferring instead to attack landlords by calling for the scrapping of Section 21.
Here is our advice to Landlords:
Landlords start being very careful about selecting tenants. Lets let Councils and Shelter look after DSS tenants. Lets see how concerned they really are. In the meantime we have mortgages to pay, families to feed.
We don’t discriminate, we must be careful not to be seen to discriminate, but landlords see our advise above and make decisions based on commercial reality. If they remove section 21 against our wishes and our advice fine, but the vulnerable will pay a very high price.
Don’t blame us. Blame Shelter.
