David Smith and Giles Peaker appear on BBC commenting on housing issues
David and Giles appear on the popular BBC Two programme with Victoria Derbyshire
Giles comments on the state of rented accommodation up and down the country, the hazards and how revenge landlords law isn’t working. The real life case studies show some of the terrible conditions that people live in and the issues that are ignored by landlords. When the issues were raised with the landlord the tenants were served with section 21 notices. The programme highlights the figures showing how many people have been affected. Revenge evictions are illegal and Giles comments on the law around this.
David’s discussion is around the Government whitepaper which discusses how to tackle the high cost of renting in the private sector and the housing shortage in the UK. The discussion is around affordable housing and the plans on how to progress there. David is the Policy Chief for the Residential Landlord Association and was able to provide comment on behalf of landlords in England and Wales. This discussion involved a number of experts and people who feel they will be renting for the rest of their lives. Full discussion can be watched on their website.
Giles also appeared on the BBC London lunchtime news this month talking about Southwark’s major works charges to leaseholders
