Also according to BDRC Continental, around a year ago 34% of private landlords were suffering high arrears particularly in the case of tenants in receipt of LHA.
It is hardly surprising, to see the equivalent of 94% of those landlords now looking to target a different market.
This is not snubbing - this is landlords trying to safeguard their earnings (profit).
At least if tenants are not renting privately, the HB bill will go down...
The emphasis should now be firmly focused on underoccupation of social housing - as underoccupiers are the ones forcing people onto the streets.
