"Do you think that landlords should be incentivised to continue providing good quality affordable housing to those who need it?"

Recommended Posts

 

Poll: Given that the PRS now makes up 20% of the housing market, do you think that landlords should be incentivised to continue providing good quality affordable housing to those who need it?

LOL. What do you think, guys?

I think they should be incentivised to get out - by way of stricter regulation.

Also on that site is this:

Quote

In fact, just 5% of landlords are professionals

I keep hearing about clueless landlords placing their victims at risk, letting people in without tenant's permission, not protecting the deposit, generally being a nuance etc and this is why. Oh and even though only 5% are professional:

Quote

With 53% of landlords owning one single property

So 47% own more than 1 property and yet most are amateurs? Do we really want to encourage this?

How can a landlord be amateur?  If you get paid for it you are professional.  (They might not do it full time and they might not have a professional approach).

No we don't need to incentivise anymore people buying more houses than they need. Isn't the rent and profit enough, I don't get bonuses for doing my job I get them for going above what's expected of me in my contract- something landlords don't seem to understand

No, I think they should be all locked up for extortion and slavery. Do I think they should start to provide good quality affordable housing? No, they will never be able to because it's not possible to profit out of housing without causing misery, and they are all in it for the profit. No monetary value is created by landlordism, just monetary extraction.

Housing Benefit rentals for BTL scum landlord does not incentivised  anymore, in fact the opposite. I was watching a "weepy" on BBC2 Newsnight a few days ago with this obese heavily tattooed young non working  mother explained how unfair the world was because she could no longer afford the £1600 per month property she once lived in and now had to come down a peg or two.

As much as I hate this Tory Government these are the type of people that Corbyn will be taking care of first wth their rental reforms, the old property where she lived and wept and outside with the interviewer was the type of home that people I know on joint £50,000 hard earner wages can just dream about, the real victims in my eyes in the UK today

+1

it is slavery.. 

send people to work while they sit on their bums.. end of the month take most of their money off them for the privilege of a roof over their heads.. 

slavery.. 

Landlords are the least useful, least productive people in our country.. if they all disappeared tomorrow they would not be missed.. 

maybe we could have a party! 🎉

Except landlords aren’t providing anyone with anything, let alone a roof.

What landlords do is threaten people with eviction for money.  

Everything else is just a cover for a particularly insidious form of extortion.

if they want that all important YES vote they need to subtly reword the question to something along the lines of

 

Do you think DEBTjunkies should be offered free entry into compulsory euthanasia trials?
