Why the Shelter 5 year rental contract proposals will not workMake Text Bigger
Housing Charity Shelter is proposing 5 year rental agreements but this is not viable as most landlords would be in breach of their buy to let mortgage conditions if they were to offer anything other than 6 or 12 month Assured Shorthold Tenancies.
However, I believe I’ve found a solution.
Some landlords want long term tenants as much as some tenants want long term security.
I would be delighted to talk to Shelter and any other interested parties about my solution which I plan to launch within the next few weeks. Look out for “The GOOD Landlords Campaign”, details of which will first be released on the Property118 forum and then shared via Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and other social networks.
We are also a Google News feed so if you want to get the news within minutes of it being published just set up a Google Alert for “GOOD Landlords Campaign” or follow me on Twitter @iAmAlandlord
Details of the Shelter proposals were first revealed by the Guardian Newspaper’s website at 09:45 am this morning – LINK
