Shelter again with latest TV advert!

I think the latest TV advert for Shelter is disgusting. Once again giving the impression that they provide housing and once again having a pop at landlords.

This time saying a tenant had called and said their landlord had asked them to leave the property in case they got Corona Virus. They really do make me sick.

We are fighting here to keep the country with a roof over their heads and they are spending out on advertising to keep their militant anti-landlord propaganda machine running, because the donations from B & Q and M & S are drying up.

Only 51 complaints is rather disappointing. What we really need is a concerted effort to make complaints to the charity commission ....

Next time a Property118 reader complains, please post the complaint and contact details here so others can do likewise.

That advert!!! my daughter is a frontline nurse, she asked me was that advert right, most of her friends live in shared housing due to poor pay/nursing loans.....could a landlord ask someone to leave because of their employment......my answer was NO!! The only way I could perceive it being correct was if the "tenant" was living in someones spareroom. and even then providing they take precautions, cant see it how it could be right. Otherwise, its the usual. It just sickens me. Landlords provide a vital service, when are these people going to wake up to this.
Ive never yet met a landlord who has evicted someone for the sheer jig of it, maybe thats just me, but Ive worked with tenants who had they had the same level of debt, with a mortgage company, they would have lost their homes.

Your so right Karen. But would Shelter have been there to help the mortgage defaulter ? or pay their legal fees ? or really provide any shelter ? I wonder....
Perhaps Shelter could answer that for us/me.

Shelter have never been around when I've had open and honest communication with my tenants. And I'd imagine there are 10000s of landlords who know this road. Shelter only ever surface when it's the problem tenants who are trying to play the system.
Slightly off piste, these families who end up in hostels, (Domestic Voilence aside) we all know that to get to that point is a long & expensive route, but no mention that the family have more then likely received the housing element and used it elsewhere. My question, why is it not classed as fraud, if you claim the housing element and knowingly use it elsewhere ie. buy little Johnny a 90" inch gaming tv, why is there not something in place to make people more accountable? And if they do run up arrears, it should be deducted and paid to landlords, even previous landlords. The ingrained cavalier attitude towards landlords, not paying your rent and that someone else will pick up the pieces is ridiculous! If tenants were made more accountable, I think we would see a reduction in the homeless crisis but whilst the government insist on paying directly it'll never happen.
