North West Authorities Desperately Need Btl Landlords’ Help

Recommended Posts

http://www.e1buytoletmortgages.co.uk/news/...-help-2669.html

It has been announced recently that landlords can provide great help for social housing needs in the North West of Great Britain as the situation is becoming more desperate.

One of the newest BBC reports suggests that the waiting list for social housing in Great Manchester currently holds 110,000 people, with 19 people for 1 property. Even though the number of Brits on the waiting list in other towns, such as Bolton, Salford, and Oldham is not shocking (22,083, 19,700 and 6,667 accordingly), they will have to wait longer than Great Manchester residents simply because the number of available properties is close to zero (254 in Bolton and 177 in Salford).

Representative of the National Landlords Association in the North West, Mr. Tom Reynolds, claimed that the organisation and local authorities are currently actively cooperating with regional landlords in an effort to persuade them meet the social housing needs. He highlighted, however, that the negotiations are only held with accredited landlords since authorities can be sure in those landlords’ premises and management systems.

Moreover, according to Mr. Reynolds, local landlords and councils have created an organisation specialising in social housing problems a few years ago. The “A-List†organisation - Authorities and Landlords Improving Standards Together – seeks to resolve housing problems by means of landlords’ and authorities’ powers. In the framework of the organisation’s work, local authorities of Tong Ward, which is in Bolton, have introduced free licensing to landlords who join the accreditation scheme. Of course, free licensing provides a significant financial relief for landlords with multiple properties.

Commenting on its introduction, the councillor of Bolton, Mr. Nick Peel, said that local authorities notice a trend of people turning to local landlords in search of housing opportunities. According to Mr. Peel, that is the reason why authorities are now closely working with local landlords, which also includes the certifying issue.

Don't let Si1 see this, as he doesn't believe I'm getting 450pm on a 3bed terraced house to a single mum.

There are a lot of similar cases out there with mums with kids needing housing.

Bolton Salford and Oldham ARE in "Great Manchester" (sic). Or they were when it existed. The IQ level of this article does not give me confidence in its factual correctness.

the problem a lot of LL's have here is that many councils are now paying housing benefits direct to the claimant and guess what they spend it on (tip - it's not rent)?

I didn't say that at all. You are obfuscating and straw-man-ing. Please do not argue with things I didn't say.

The problem the general community has had is that some people have monoplised housing and land and have been using the cartel to gouge everyone else.

*checks local council's HB form* there's still an option to send the money to the landlord directly...
