By the govt Not addressing the Criminal tenants, they are blighting the rental conditions for the majority of good tenants ( but can’t see that ! ) The equivalent is not funding a Police service and letting everyone sort their own problems out. We’ve not quite got anarchy in the rental sector at present, although we do have a significant number of Tenants defaulting on Rent and other tenancy conditions.
We can see the result of this in the reducing number [ circa 20% only ] of landlords prepared to rent to tenants in receipt of benefit. ( okay, I admit U.C hasn’t helped that )
Its a case of when does Private debt impact upon the majority of law abiding tenants, and Landlords are seeing that but the government ( and Tenant groups ) are not.
