  • I am feed up with landlords being tared with the same brush. The vast majority of us are professional and manage are investments responsibly. We either let properties as a business, pension or income supliment. It is not sustainable to act in a irresponsible manor.

    Miliband’s controls are laughable. Any sensible landlord will be doing already what he suggests. Shawly we want long term responsible tenants who pay their rent. To do this the rent is competitive and only goes up by inflation. It is not rocket science. The type of landlord Milibabd wants to legislate against are very few and do not last long.

  • I have been a landlord since 1997. Over the years I got good at it and consider most tenants to be my guests. Unfortunately that’s dull reading.

    I moved to a new city in December 14 and have put together a very nice place at a reasonable price. Because I am no longer allowed to ask things like occupation, pets, etc. every self-entitled welfare recipient is telling me when to be available for them and in one case to provide haven against their violent baby daddies.

    And they want the government to pay for their plosh new place along with their kids.

    This landlord has PTSD. Don’t I have a right to peace of mind?
