3 Year Tenancies

Recommended Posts

'Richard Lambert, chief executive of the NLA, said: “This is a policy which the Conservatives derided when it was put forward by their opponents in the past two general election campaigns. It’s hard not to see this as more of a political move aimed at the renter vote than a genuine effort to improve how the rented market works for all those involved.”

NLA research with tenants found that 40% of tenants want longer tenancies, but 40% do not. More than 50% said they are happy with the tenancy length they were offered, and 20% told the NLA that when they asked for a longer tenancy, they got it.'

Oh dear, here we go, more spin.

The proposal is not to force renters into 3 year tenancies, but the landlords.  Deliberately asked the wrong question.

I would take the results to mean 40% want longer tenancies and another 40% may not stay that long in one by using their option to quit early.  So more like 80% ok with it.

The 20% "longer" bit is jibberish, so make that 100% are ok with it.  Which is no effing surprise!

And all that's without any review of the "research". 

The BTL brigade stole these homes from families so they can jolly well give them something similar back.

Sounds like the same argument that was used to support zero hours contracts...and I wasn't convinced by that either!

Surely the tenant in question would like the "option of a 3 year tenancy" if say their child was moving into a new school, it has fuck all to do with percentages.
