If anyone is interested is seeing some pointless, mind-numbing questions ( and have insomnia ) take a look at the below.  –  my response email to them is ; –

” What a pointless and complex mind-numbing set of questions,

What are you trying to achieve, – certainly not engagement with a significant number of landlords.

Landlords in Wales ( and the rest of the country for that matter ) want some parity and fairness with the way they are treated compared with tenants.

In the main, or rather, without exception, media coverage of landlords is appalling.

What could Wales do differently and set a lead ?

A minority of “Rogue tenants” ( not as common a concept as Rogue Landlords, unfortunately )  are skewing the behaviour of Landlords against providing homes for the vulnerable or those on Benefit. –  This is because a number of the Rogue tenants are to be found here, moving on from one property to another, leaving swathes of rent arrears and damage.

Why not address some balance and facilitate those tenants who make themselves ‘intentionally Homeless’ to also be recorded on a searchable database by Licensed landlords.   This would at least show some return benefit to Welsh licensed landlords.

Do you know, I think it could catch on in other parts of the country and show some leadership in Wales (rather than following media and some Housing association rhetoric ? )  ”
