How do you reconcile S24 causing homelessness with this thread highlighting an increasing number of empty properties due to lack of demand.
The increase in landlords refusing to take LHA tenants is probably more to do with UC.
Why don't you ask Jonathan Clarke. His section 21s are primarily driven by section 24. He is not alone. I am doing the same.
JC is not alone I have done the same
and in hindsight its the best days work I did ? DHSS is just not worth the effort

If you have replaced the evicted tenant then the property is neutral in terms of homelessness.
I expect he will read this thread so can add his comments.
Most of JCs post I have read refers to re-letting the properties at a higher rent - that would suggest that they are neutral in terms of homelessness as one tenant has replaced another.
The government figures are that S24 affects one in five landlords, IMLA have just released figures – another thread on PT – that investment in BTL is down 80%, the problems are much wider than S24.
My area is seeing an oversupply of properties to rent with rents falling, others have made similar comments, S24 is an issue but not the only one.
The poorest tenants are being swapped for richer ones
That I acknowledge, therefore there are still the same number of people being housed and as far as homeless figures are concerned nothing has changed. The new tenants may have been sofa surfing and the evicted tenants may need to go into temporary accomodation but the government will look at the total figure and will not be concerned how that figure is made up.
The public will not like the rise in homelessness for the poorest as they have no resources and will suffer.It's not so easy to brush under the carpet.
