Shelter ask for Landlords views

Two Property118 members have pointed out that Shelter are actually asking for views from Landlords and have produced a survey to complete: Click Here.

The request from Shelter states: “Take our survey to help us understand what’s important to you and how we can best work together towards developing a better private rental sector. Answers are completely anonymised.”

Questions include:

  • What were your motivations for becoming a landlord?
  • What are the best things about being a landlord?
  • What are the main challenges you face as a landlord?
  • How would you describe your relationship with your tenants?
  • How do you think Shelter can work better with landlords?
  • What has been your experience of Shelter?

We all hope this can be used as a positive step for Shelter and the PRS to start working together as opposed to against each other to the benefit of tenants.

Yes, I did realise that I forgot to mention UC and how it is causing more homelessness by Landlords refusing to take benefit tenants due to the associated high risk however, I do believe that if the structure I mentioned is followed there would be more properties built and less homelessness. It was written in haste so everything has not been fine tuned and what I had written was the general idea and I believe it would work if not improve the situation substantially.

Benefit levels i.e. LHA rates are not sufficient to cover the rent in many areas at present where at present there are no rent restrictions so what I had written should not be additionally effected.

Homelessness is also caused by overcrowding issues. Surely it is better to have a roof over one’s head rather than have to live in the streets.

I do believe if housing was left as it was before around 2015, there would be far less homeless. There is at present so much to drive the suppliers of housing i.e. Landlords out of the market and less conducive for those that wish to enter the market that I do believe most of the homelessness is caused by the policies introduced after 2015.
