Usual nonsense from the Residential Landlords Association
I actually submitted evidence about this to a Government paper on the Private Rental Sector a few years ago. Some of the other evidence was very similar to this article - Kids having to move every six months at the whim of the Landlords. The Residential Landlords Association nonsense that I refer to is that if life is made more difficult for them there will be a shortage of Rental Properties. If there is a shortage of anything it is of affordable properties to buy. My first house, bought in 1986 was an almost new two bedroom "Starter House" in a road of about 30 similar houses. They were all owner occupied. Nowadays, most have probably been bought by Landlords.
