Anyone in this group belong to a landlord association? Question for NRLA why are they not more vocal in the lack of furlough support by the government for landlords. Landlords get no support whatsoever!

No support at a time we cannot evict and have to pay more tax it’s so unjust. Why aren’t they shouting about this it’s not the government that’s supporting renters its private landlords.

I can’t help but feel landlords are just too scared to speak out given the anti-landlord propaganda by this government.

Your silence is deafening. It’s time to speak out at your injustice.

Yes, I'd been with them from almost day one, until recently. I then realised that I was wasting my money. I get all that I want from Property 118 and as for forms, you can get those from the Law Society or many other places on the net.

Back on the original subject, there's a simple solution to using money set aside for furlough purposes. Help those that can't pay rent for legitimate reasons by paying their rent directly to landlords. By legitimate, I mean because the pandemic has damaged their income sufficiently. For the rest, the won't pay brigade, the chancers & the downright nasty, let's bring back a no time limit evictions situation. Hmm, maybe streamline the court process to make it cost less too. Oh & it'll be quicker, that's good. Oh, that solves another problem too. I've been banging on about this for ages. I'm not alone I know. If people aren't happy with the NRLA as a lobbying organisation, is anyone prepared to organise one that's dedicated to landlord causes? It's no use just whining that our interests aren't represented. If any of you feel strongly enough, go for it. You'll plenty of support from the PRS.

Oh 1 other thing, where are these reduced price properties that have been mentioned in here? I'm oop north & the market is bonkers here. I'd love to buy like I could way back in 2009 but those heady days of a flat costing less than a posh car seem over.

NRLA has only existed for less than a year so 3 years ago you must have belonged to one of the former associations. Whatever anyone thinks of the activities of the association and the way in which it operates, landlords have no other collective voice and complaining on internet forums will make no impression on government.

If everyone thought like this they would have no members and no voice. Why would anyone listen to an organisation that is not supported by its natural constituency?
You are cutting off your nose to spite your face.

Why would anyone want to be a member of an organisation which will not use it's voice. It deserves to die out.

Why are you guys wasting your time complaining about the NRLA. The reason they are not voicing your concerns is they know it is falling on deaf ears. The government have indicated that they want a large proportion of LL to sell out, they are even oiling the wheels with the stamp duty break and the announcment today that they're gonna underight FTB mortgages so that anyone selling in the next 6 months exits with their gains. If you are unmortgaged or lowerly geared and can last the next couple of years with sparadic income then buckle up, if highly geared and can't handle voids in income, take the gift the government is giving you.

And if it dies out what will replace it? Nothing zilch zero there is no other organisation that can take its place.
Have you actually taken the trouble to check what the association has been doing in recent months or are you speaking from a position of ignorance?
What exactly do you think they should be doing that is not already happening?
