The Perfect Storm?

The Welfare Reforms are going to create challenging times for both landlords and their tenants.

The changes to Welfare Benefits, at the same time that funding has been reduced to council services and other support agencies, has been described as the perfect storm.

Specialist advice will reduce the impact these changes will undoubtedly have on rent collection. As well as protecting income streams, our specialist advice can help a business reduce the cost and time constraints associated with evictions.

As the proposed changes come into force, they are going to change the way rent is collected, especially once benefit payments begin to be paid directly into a tenant’s bank account. Whilst we believe that a sustainable tenancy will provide security for both a landlord and their tenants. There are many reasons why a landlord may need to evict a tenant. These can include a failure to pay rent, damaging the property, causing a nuisance or breaching any other aspects of the tenancy agreement
