LHA direct payment e-petition

After my earlier post giving details of an e-petition against the governments licensing plans, I have now learned of another one here requesting Local Housing Allowance be paid direct to landlords.

Petitions seem to be taking off - it is a shame therefore that the government is no longer supporting them, according to this report on the blog.

This government is doing all it can to destroy the morale of any private landlord, for the 3rd time in 5 years I have been left out of pocket by another professional bad tenant who has received LHA payments, not paid her rent and done a bunk when she was rumbled... I have 10 properties... and I run a business... yes, it is my fault that I didn't catch this earlier on but why oh why does the government think its so great to expose landlords to this massive risk - people on benefits are (generally) not cash rich... if they get a cheque for several hundred pounds many of them have it spent before they've even given their landlord a thought!

Stupid, stupid, stupid idiots who run this country!
