One should not have to be a lawyer to be a landlord and the system should not be so complicated.  The government has made the system as complicated as possible so as to deter landlords, why I do not know except perhaps to favour their corporate friends.

I have been a landlord for more than 30 years and am still caught out by the increasingly complex rules associated with section 21.  Except for rent arrears section 8 evictions are near impossible to prove making them almost useless.

Antisocial behaviour could be stopped at the stroke of a government pen by making evictions easier.  This would not affect the stability of solvent, well behaved families for no sane landlord evicts a tenant who causes no trouble.
