What a completely pointless article, thought it was Daily Mail at first, can't believe the DT pays "journalists" to pull sh*t like that together. It would also appear to be mainly anecdotal, I've heard that fish story hundreds of times, think it's more of an urban myth than anything else.

And the underlying pretence is that Landlords are beyond reproach and tenants are scumbags....what a bunch of crap!!

Okay, I'll start :)

Have now been forced to move house twice in the space of 9 months. Two young children have had there lives turned upside down because:

- "Accidental Landlord" No. 1 decided not to renew tenancy (had been there without issue for 5 years) and sell up.

- "Accidental Landlord" No. 2 applied pressure on us to leave 6 months into 2 year tenancy due to change in their circumstances, which required them to have the house back. I know we could've stayed longer, but we knew that we were on borrowed time and that whatever happened LL would trigger break clause at 12 month point. As this would mean looking for new home around Xmas, we decided we had little choice to move as soon as we found somewhere.

I know most of the talk on here is about bringing down BTL, but hopefully the above highlights that we need some kind of legislation to consider the tenant in these situations. If you're lucky enough to be able to afford to service multiple properties, then that should come with more rights for ordinary tenants.
