I just hope that Nationwide are ready for the keys coming back from landlords who will lose their properties if there isn’t a way of getting the property back from bad tenants!
Surely it’s the landlords that are getting the extra rent not the agents? At £600 a year given the numbers it is nothing to the agent?
Instead of tinkering around the edges how about lobbying government to rethink the whole deposit and fee set up? The article is right in so much as the higher risk tenants will pay more though, well done…[Read more]
Yet again Westminster look to the private landlords as the scapegoats for years of poor government in the housing sector.
If successive governments had acted rather than using the PRS as a political football and if even 1/2 of the houses that should have been built had made it out of the ground then this would not even be a conversation!

If Shelter did what most people think they do, housing people rather than trying to score points by destroying the private rental sector, then there would be no issue. But they don’t; Polly Neate and the other directors with their bloated salaries and pensions have only one agenda that being the destruction of the PRS.

Good idea, well overdue but why oh why do government have to be so underhand?
Next thing though will be the cost, wait for government to fleece landlords yet again!
Let’s be honest, is anything drafted by government “thought through”?
There are so many trip wires within this Act that it is inevitable that landlords and agents will get it wrong.
We are using an agreement to lease at a future date which tenant signs once references are done and we are ready to offer an agreement; the 15 day period is the…[Read more]
Why complain to the estate agent (and I never support Purplebricks!) when clearly the error is with the buyer?
Anyone who buys a property that “looks nice” without a proper survey needs their head examining!
Only yourself to blame sir!
Are we losing sight as to whose property it is? Does the tenant own the house? – No, the landlord owns the house and as such should have the choices as to who lives there, how long they live there and when they should leave. As a landlord myself for over 25 years I have had 1 tenant go bad on me, the others have stayed as long as they liked…[Read more]
