    A reasonable point -- but diversity is supposed to hedge against vagaries of markets (which might result to some extent from legislation) - not outright theft or appropriation by a jackbooted thug.

    Eh...? How does
    a) Stealing from landlords
    "balance"
    b) The original theft from the taxpayer.

    Apart from the fact that a small number of those landlords might have been beneficiaries of the original theft (for certain types of properties in certain areas only). In most cases the same people are being stolen from twice - hardly balancing anything (expect the books of a a soon-to-be-bankrupt country)

    Makes no sense whatever

    Not that that means that I would approve of forcing sale below market price, but then isn't covered by the human rights courts, which are in Europe....

    Feeling a bit cornered where a labour government could effectively steal my pension! In the article by the independent they were talking about forced sale below market value.

    With the removal of s21 I was waiting until my tenant leaves before selling, but maybe this needs to be accelerated! 😐

    Unlike sellers of other investments, estate agents aren't regulated to give investment advice.

    If all this Brexit madness brings along a Labour govt then we as landlords truly are stuffed, i read an article on this and watched McDonnell i think it was who see's nothing whatsoever wrong with taking someone else's asset and giving it (well at a discount) to the poor and down trodden, i can see a real sell off of rentals if they do come into power which will make the recent tax changes etc look like child's play. I will be keeping my options open on this but for me there is no god damm way that some lefty toe rag is going to dictate if and whom i sell my properties too.

    Just get a precautionary possession order if you are concerned guys. Then you can evict tenant any time in the next six years.

    Exactly.. Will soon be time to have a word with my tenant I think.

    We are seeing a lot of it at the moment, would you believe anything said today by any politician or political commentator? It will probably be different tomorrow.

    I personally, (from the work I used to do) know that the BBC put out a false news story yesterday, I'm guessing as a political distraction.
    And I'm not talking about the 2-headed snake or the 73 year old woman giving birth to twins. (Yes, both on the BBC yesterday).

    Wait until something happens before shouting about speculation.
    I don't believe anything at the moment, but I want to have a plan B. 2 headed animals are born from time to time. It might well be that a 73 year old woman gave birth to twins (in India, by IVF). Her husband apparently had a heart attack on the day they were born. The world's going bonkers.

    I'm going to put my rents up as much as possible, and thinking about S21 to all working tenants who might be able to buy, selling better quality properties, buying lower quality ones (with yards not gardens) and letting to unemployed who can't buy. Just waiting to see if labour get in. Forget being a good landlord with slightly below going rents and doing more than required repairs and upkeep. I'm going to have to get as much £££ as I can before being forced out of business.
