Rogue landlord who glued tenant's locks and cut off utilities banned from renting out properties


Recommended Posts

"...A rogue landlord who illegally rented out an overcrowded bedsit before waging a campaign of harassment against the tenants when they complained has been banned from renting out properties again."

Even more scum-like than normal BTL scum.

A couple of things:

1) Whilst not all BTL scumlords are complete psycho's (well, not quite as pschotic as this anyway) this shows the "type" of person/personality that gets involved in BTL HMO/illegal HMO game. I.e. people farming, greed is good, the "who cares about other people, I'm doing alright jack" mentality.

2) How is it possible to so easily become a landlord and rent out a property? Are they no checks at all by councils?

Does anyone seriously think that's the last we'll hear of this guy? He'll switch to an adjacent town, put everything in a relative's name or whatever and carry on.

Yes, this is the last we will hear about him, BTL is effectively over.

 If you pay for a hole, the price reflects that. Should you really be able to moan and refuse to pay? 

There is a market for holes. Of course they're sub standard, but the price reflects that. 

It's all very well the great and the good imposing standards, but all that does is increase the pool of people who can't afford it. They have to find a place to sleep in the cheaper informal/illegal market.

Holes can be quite expensive, beggars can't be choosers and all that.

Well he did avoid a rather large inheritance tax bill.

The rich in the US are IT innovators, Germany and Europe industrialists,  UK landowners...just like in 1066.

This has a lot to do with it.

Despite all the shortcomings of the USA, at least it's a republic. Saying that, the top 1% of the US population probably own more....
