The Landlords Alliance campaign to stop B&Q supporting anti-private landlord charity Shelter and to get them to instead support a homelessness charity which provides actual shelter has gathered pace this week. Landlords and other property professionals have been hugely supportive of the campaign. As one commentator said about Shelter on Property Industry Eye:
“It constantly posts pictures of mould etc and always blames the landlord. Never does It mention how a tenant might be contributing to condensation by their lifestyle.
It supports taxing landlords to bankruptcy via SECTION 24.
It supports tenants from hell remaining in the property.
It encourages tenants to wait for the bailiffs.
It refuses to work with the PRS for the good of tenants.”
Today, a letting agent has told her story of how a landlord has had a terrible time, not only because of some dreadful, anti-social, non-paying tenants, but also because of Shelter’s support for these, which has made their awful predicament so much worse. Agent tells supporter B&Q how Shelter has allowed ‘tenants from hell’ to stay in property
People who support and donate to Shelter need to know that this is how they operate ‘on the front line’, in addition to their national campaigning against the private rented sector. And Shelter think they’re the good guys?
