September 2020 News


Summer is ending and whilst Covid may still be with us, any suggestion of sitting idly at home waiting for it to end has long since gone. Trades people have never been busier or harder to get hold of (do update our recommended suppliers when you use one), evidence of 'sofa surfing' is increasing – so if you have an uninvited tenant do make sure you are on the right side of the rules (though as a couple of members found this month, at present, eviction is not an option). And if you have experienced abuse of the 'no evictions' government policy, like the landlord with a property in Telephone Rd who has 5 students waiting to move in on 8th Sept, but he cannot get rid of last years students as they have concluded that 'no evictions' gives them carte blanche to stay rent free, then do let us know.

If you sold a property in the area in the last decade, do remember to claim a rebate from Southern Water and, on a more positive note, this month sees the 1st in a series of features on how to get your properties 'carbon neutral'- do read it and let us know what you need to help you become 'greener'. And finally, do please tell us what national issue is of greatest importance to you as a landlord – where should the NRLA be focusing.
