Hey Nonny Nonny
Careful - you are playing with my words. I asked if there was evidence of a landlord using the S21 to intimidate tenants - not if there was evidence of landlords intimidating tenants per se. As apparently you think the S21 is being used as a leash.
What would such an equivalent be Nonny Nonny? Something that takes tenants a short amount of time, doesn't cost much. How about someone comes up with...a Notice To Quit? Oh, too late.
There should be no control by either party over the other Nonny. We are all adults, and need to act like it. Tenants should be free to enjoy their homes in return for keeping to their part of the agreement (you know tenancy agreements do set out obligations on the part of both tenants and landlords), and landlords should enjoy the benefits of permitting you access to live in their home, in return for keeping to their part of the agreement. That's how it should work - no intimidation involved. Is that so foolish?
