Record response to new survey on Section 21

A record number of landlords have responded to the Residential Landlord Association’s (RLA) survey asking what a post-Section 21 private rented sector should look like.

The survey, which went live just days after the government announced plans to axe Section 21 repossessions – so-called ‘no fault’ evictions – last month, has already attracted more than 6,000 respondents.

The RLA is inviting landlords to share their experiences of regaining possession of properties – and asking what assurances they need to continue to stay in the sector and provide the homes to rent that are so desperately needed.

The responses will be used by the RLA as the basis for its response to the government’s formal consultation when it is launched.

David Smith, policy director for the RLA, said: “The scale of responses to this important survey shows the strength of feeling in the sector.

“The RLA argues that it is vital landlords are confident that they can swiftly and easily repossess a property for legitimate reasons such as rent arrears, anti-social behaviour and needing to sell the property.”

Smith added: “The survey closes Monday, and we would encourage all those who want the opportunity to have their say and shape the future of the sector to take the time to respond.”

    Unable to sell a property in the current market and with minimal knowledge of the letting world we turned to Gregory and his team at Let Me Properties to be our guides through the process. Our initial meeting with Gregory was not only productive in terms of identifying a way forward but he gave us confidence that in his hands the venture would be a success. Following discussions regarding the optimum layout it soon became apparent that significant investment would be required to bring the property up to a standard necessary for rental and we had no hesitation in allowing Gregory to project manage this on our behalf. The structural modifications carried out made best use of the space available and the suggestions regarding fixtures and fittings made perfect sense and obviously complied with all legal obligations. I am confident that the cost of this management service was repaid many times over in the savings made by using a tried and trusted team of contractors. With any project of this nature there will undoubtedly be unforeseen incidents along the way but they were all dealt with in a prompt and professional manner that removed all burden from ourselves. Once work was complete there was no delay in marketing the property and within days there were a number of offers to rent. The information provided to establish a preferred candidate was thorough allowing an informed choice to be made which appears to have been to everybody's benefit. A few months down the line and communication from Let Me has remained of a high standard and minor teething issues with the property have been dealt with promptly and with little fuss. We would definitely recommend both the letting and project management services offered by Let Me Properties. Read more Read lessJon YoungOctober 16, 2019
