Report Manchester council launch crackdown on rogue landlords in battle on poor quality housing in House prices and the economy Posted December 16, 2016 1 hour ago, EssKay said: Agree that shit holes in crap areas will probably always be shit holes in crap areas, but hopefully measures like this will tip a few more BTL slumlord investors over the edge and cause them to realise that building up a pwoperdee portfolio isn't the sure fire route to untold wealth they thought it would be. Oh, and it *might* just make life a bit more bearable for the unfortunate people forced to rent from them If the idiot-d-heads are moved out then where will they go? There are some people who will always be antisocial nobs and probably need putting somewhere away from the rest of society. But failing that the only way to deal with them is through the courts. Either locking them up (as above) or instructing them they will be locked up unless they behave.
