Heads up about a TV programme due to hit our screens next Monday. BBC "Panorama" are featuring controversial and outspoken landlord, Fergus Wilson.I sincerely hope I am wrong, but I can't see this being positive for the wider landlord community or the image of landlords in general.SEE ALSO - Fergus Wilson - "bell-wether" for landlords?UP NEXT - Fergus courting headlines: Help or hindrance?DON'T MISS - Fergus Wilson bans tenants from cooking curryNOW WATCH:

Finally a straight talking guy who admits he is doing this for money (doesn’t everyone?) doesn’t beat around the bush. Refreshing.
As refreshing as a glass of out of date milk.
All businesses do it for the money, but being respectful to your clients and having an ethical approach is what separates us. All LLs will get lumped in as being the same as this oaf as he perpetuates the stereotype, which isn't necessarily true of the majority of LLs.
Not, of course, that I am suggesting fergus is a rogue, but the more done to expose and boot out rogue landlords, the better. Ditto agents, tenants, MPs.....
I wonder if Panorama will get to the bottom of how many houses he actually owns? He keeps saying he's sold to investors, and every newspaper article mentioned a different number. Very odd.
Who's to say Shamarama's stats are accurate?!
Perhaps they’ll do an expose of the conditions and standards within the less desirable parts of the social sector as well for a bit of balance, but i won’t hold my breath.
English Housing Survey 2017 flagged higher tenant satisfaction in PRS v SRS.
Wait for all the anti landlord brigade to have a field day. They know this man is not in the least representative of the landlord community, but it suits their narrative to pretend that he is. I hope Panorama has done the right thing and included interviews from decent, ethical landlords
