      The ban on evictions is not solving the root cause of the problem its a knee-jerk reaction to the perceived problem - what some call 'kicking the can down the road'. What is really worrying is not the delay in evictions but the thought that nobody in a position of power has a grasp of the big picture and the rot has set in for generations

        It would make me feel a little better if this was true, i think they have a very good grasp of what is going and what they are doing, the destruction of the PRS is a great vote winner, by making LL's the bogey man it diverts attention from the total lack of social house building this (and previous) govt's have presided over. We cannot win this one i am afraid, i see nothing but a slow decline in BTL

          Agree (sort of) - getting rid of private landlords is not indicative of seeing the bigger picture and vote grabbing is not solving the root cause of the problem

            by spicelord
            Hi all, sorry if this has been asked before. I'm renovating following a huge fire in the property and I'm additionally going to install Google Nest Smoke alarms to send a remote alert to my phone as well as ring an alarm for any occupants. Unfortunately this needs wifi which is the responsibility...

            by boletus
            The last full blown bailiff eviction I did was well before Covid. Using section 21 to evict a non paying, ASB, violent, drug dealing tenant's new boyfriend who made the neighbours' lives hell.

            Even so, with calm hindsight, the timescale was fairly reasonable.

            Section 8 on the...

            I thought I’d start a new topic, rather than hijacking others as I’ve probably been guilty of that in the past.

            Nearly 20 months ago we issues an S21 to our tenants. It got close to Christmas and our tenants pleaded that they ‘just needed another week or two’ and like fools we issued...

            by Praky
            Hi,
            I am relatively a new landlord and complete novice in the court system and legal dispute. Can anyone please suggest me on my current situation?
            I am a landlord for HMO property, 4 tenants are staying the house and they have one guarantor in the rental agreement. They are not paying the...

            by boletus
            That's a very good point. Shades of debtors' prisons.

            But it works both ways. I was summonsed for non payment of council tax on a rental property. Out of 250 rubber stamped hearings I was the only defendant to turn up in person.

            The council legal team agreed it had been settled...

            Hi, thanks for the advice Hudson. Part of the problem is that one of the couple is a solicitor (but not in conveyancing) and seems to know what they can get away with so I feel like I am always fighting a losing battle. I also feel that if I start with solicitors letters they will involve all the neighbours...

            by goodgirldulwich
            Hello, could I get some advice because I bought a flat with a share of the freehold 11 years ago. A couple bought the other flat in the house about 5 years ago and I was unable to consent to their plans for building an extension before they moved in and they have been annoyed since that happened. A...

            The solicitor you spoke with i think was right, at the moment you are seen as the weaker party in this dispute and i see no reason why they would change their ways in the future, in fact i can see them taking even more liberties It may make the flat more difficult to sell with legal action taking place,...

            Yes you can appeal but need to look at the specific grounds. Buy a copy of CPAG Welfare Benefits Handbook, it's all in there.
