Buy to let owners sign petition to change tenancy law

Buy to let owners sign petition to change tenancy law

Many buy to let property owners have signed a petition to make it easier for them to evict tenants.

Earlier this week, Landlord Action revealed that 2,000 landlords have called for a change to the law, which will give them greater rights over evicting residents.

The petition will close today (November 5th 2010) and will be presented to Downing Street by the campaign group and Mike Weatherley MP.

Speaking on the current campaign, founder of Landlord Action Paul Shamplina said that the response from buy to let property owners is a clear indication that "landlords are unhappy".

He stated that the present process "takes far too long", adding: "2,000 landlords are now asking the government to recognise landlords' concerns and to begin taking steps to improve the situation."

In July, the National Landlords Association reported that one-fifth of landlords have experienced problems with tenants in rent arrears during the previous three months, many of whom could be tempted to sign the petition to get problem residents evicted sooner. ADNFCR-1222-ID-800219821-ADNFCR
