Next they’ll be insisting that you can’t charge your tenants any fees, have to accept pets and benefits tenants, making all tenancies assured and allowing tenants to walk away and cancel their tenancy agreements after 2 months from start of tenancy. Hang on a minute……the first one they already have and the others are in the White Paper. Won’t be long and you won’t be able to claim any expenses at all. Why should a landlord get tax relief on a new boiler, new carpets and a kitchen refurb whereas owners don’t ? Labour will win the next election with a landslide then it’s goodbye to your 20% interest tax credit and welcome RTB to the PRS.

Reply to the comment left by Dylan Morris at 01/08/2022 - 09:53What PRS? By the time all those measures are in place I doubt there will be anything but corporate-owned Build to Let and protected purpose-built student blocks left for aspiring tenants to choose from. The individual private landlord will have been "professionalised" out of exitence and all but the cream of the renters will be back in the parental home, sofa surfing or on the streets. .

You should have been a prophet!!! 🙂

But you missed the one about paying tenants moving costs, their eletricity/gas bills and the killer of paying the tenant for the privilege of occupying your hovel for you. Oops forget about wiping their a**e for them.

"Landlords have been warned they risk fixed penalty notices and the loss of HMO licences if students leave rubbish in public areas when they check out."
"Landlords have been told by the council that they “should immediately remove any accumulated waste, including discarded belongings, from the premises.”
If that does not happen, they have been warned they could receive a fixed penalty notice or be prosecuted under section 46 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 (Domestic Waste)."
Landlords to be responsible for tenants' waste? When oh when will tenants be required to be accountable for their own actions or comply with the terms of their agreements, rather than blaming everything on and punishing landlords?

all a load of twaddle,. The councils have not got enough people or time to follow this up. Just send regular emails to student tenants telling them to clear up, and take photos each time you see stuff. Create a file and if it EVER went to a fine contest it. Inevitably students have a parent address so tell the Council that's where they live. Let them chase it up.

Surely this report is the legacy of the anti-landlord policies of Campbell Robb who moved from CEO of Shelter in 2017 to become CEO of the Joseph Rowntree Foundation until 2019. He is now CEO of 'national social justice charity' Nacro. At least he is now working for an organisation which does provide some housing and which, according to their website, works with private landlords. In fact they are appealing for help from them... https://www.nacro.org.uk/housing/for-landlords/
