The Landlords Union intends to carry out research in the form of a survey into the public’s awareness for the causes of Rent increases.
Don’t all shout out at once, because landlords already know the answer: “It’s the Extra Tax burden of Section 24 along with Licensing and all the other costs that the government loads onto Landlords.”
The object of the survey is to prove the public know it as well and the only people left to be convinced (aided by the results of the survey) are the government and maybe some tenant groups who know it, but strategically choose to ignore it.
The survey would benefit from the input of academia. If any members know of a student who might wish to help with the survey as part of their studies – please let us know.
A Prize of a full evening’s fine dining for two at a National restaurant chain could be included (maybe part-sponsored by the chain for the publicity). If any readers have suggestions or contacts with management of such a chain this would be very useful.
Publicity around this survey and its results could result in a major boost for Landlords, alleviating and re-directing some unfair criticism that’s leveled at us by various organisations and the media for some time.
None of the ‘proprietary landlords groups’ have been able to step up to the plate and successfully defend Landlords from the parasitic, greedy rent-grabbing propaganda and press coverage.
The proposed methodology to combat these perceptions is a practical and media-rich campaign.
