Meet The Landlords

Recommended Posts

This is just anti renting propaganda. Why don't the BBC just drop the pretence and open an chain of estate agents?

Was thinking the same myself.

The BBC: Rentier whores from 1922.

Its interesting though how the private sector is rolling back the centuries and turning what were decent family homes into squalid little "Dickensian" style tenements. Oh well.

And there is enough money flowing into the system for them to really out do social landlords and offer high standards of accomodation. But do they do it? Nope.

Utter total feckless scum landlords.

Don't be so harsh towards those tenants.

There weren't any tenants by that stage.

Jailer Jim with his keys and guard dog cramming people into those broom cupboards he calls bedsits, taking his government subsidy with him.

Turns out running a business has risks. Shocker! A grown adult should assess the potential risks of starting a business and be prepared for difficulties that could arise. Why are they only filming muppets in this?

Those 2 women weren't running a business they were just renting their homes out...

Renting a house (not their home is it) is a business. You just made the same mistake they did.

The programme was better than expected. It showed how ludicrous it is to place vunerable people in the hands of private landlords. The chief scumlord Jim forecasts property to double in value in 10 years. I hope he is wrong, but I am sure Osborne is doing everything possible to help Jim's dream come true.

Bankers you mean? Never met Jim, but I am sure he is a complete fanny, sounds like it with his valuation dreams anyway :lol:

The worst of programming - scum of all descriptions make car crash and cheap television. The BBC has done us all proud, taking whoring to an all time low.

Well it might backfire and put people off becoming "reluctant landlords."

As for the scumlord. well it seems a lot of his tenants are falling behind due to a shortfall between LHA rate and rent. He's charging too much basically and its pointless trying to collect a shortfall from such people. He's wasting his own time and the Courts basically and they must be sick of him too.

These people are paying £90 a week for a squalid kind of studio/bedsit you wouldn't keep an animal in. OK bills are included. I currently pay £65 a week exclusive for social housing - a large spacious one bed 60's flat with gch and seperate kitchen and bathroom.

You might say "oh but you are subsidised Mr Secure Tenant" but even so social rents are supposedly 80% of market rents, so there is basically no need to kennel people like this.

Its not so much the tenants being ripped off, but the taxpayers who are getting p*ss poor value from the billions being blown on housing benefit to landlords. Yes there is squalor, but you would manage a HMO properly. Send someone into clean the communal areas, report, repair and clean accordingly. The landlords are totally unprofessional.

Sooner or later one of these HMO's will go up in flames, people will get killed and there will be a major scandal and clampdown. Shame its got to get that far.

Yes, this is a big concern, the complete impunity that some of these people operate under. If you are minded to cut corners to stick it straight in the back pocket, then that's what you'll do, and I don't doubt these types are attracted to being a LL for this very reason. I am interested by the news that big insurance companies are set to increase their involvement in the private rental markets. They will at least have done the sums and likely not scabble around trying to save a tenner a week for a stair cleaning etc.

*If* they start building their own blocks to increase supply it could work out well. Maybe they'll take some portfolios from slumlords and bring them up to scratch too.
