    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

    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

    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

    That's easy, banks are big business so supported by the government, private landlords are scum who can be trampled underfoot. Far easier for them to make us pay for the pandemic.

    It's explained in this old film from the 70's:

    Well, that will just give them the excuse to repossess.

    My point is that TPTB have wrecked thousands of jobs with their lockdowns. Those people will inevitably end up on benefits, which will make it difficult to pay the rent. At the same time, they are making it impossible for landlords to evict them, while giving the okay on repossessions.

    I think I begin to see a motive in their madness.

    Not in England.
    That would have to be a conventional section 21 notice.

    My tenants will NOT lose their home due to the pandemic. I was already evicting them before anyone had heard of Covid. I wonder whether that will be taken into consideration!

    The documents referred to in the links in my original post are only discussion reports from the select committee to the government.
    (The gov. can, and frequently do, ignore select committee reports).

    They just give an idea of what may be being considered.

    I spoke to bailiffs and they reckon the ban will be extended.

    'Coherent' and this govt in the same sentence is somewhat amusing. I fear we will have another form of restriction to our rights so it can follow the current ban..... this is never ending.
