    I don't know if it applies here but there seems to be a push to accomodate the homeless who were housed during lockdown and PRS was mentioned. Some will be foreign nationals not entitled to housing benefit, others will have been on the streets because they're drug addicts or alcoholics.

    Ok thanks for that section I will see what the council are actually offering and take it from there. most tenants stay a year with 18 months being the longest with voids of a few months in between each lease probably because of my caution towards potential tenants, so far I have been lucky and they...

    I think that would depend on your deal, boilers are indeed excluded on mine and they insist on GCH cover but they guarantee to return property in same condition so I assume they replace kitchen if needed.
    I do know they fully redecorated one of mine last year between tenants but to be honest...

    Best advice is don’t get yourself into something you can’t get yourself out of. If you want rid of the responsibility, get an estate agent to market for sale, let the looming landlords buy it if they’re so sure what they’re selling you is such a good deal.

    When you say all repairs are we talking big ticket items like boilers etc with no cost to me, is It effectively run as One of there own social housing stock then, would the council replace the kitchen say in ten years as they would with there own properties, There’s nothing To dislike about Rent...

    Several local councils do that in my area.

    I have known 3 landlords that used it and they had no problems with it

    Our local council also buy homes back for about market value under certain circumstances.

    Remember there is no right to buy in Scotland any more.
