Another blow for DSS Landlords

Nationwide pulls plug on mortgages for housing association tenants

The Nationwide has announced that it is pulling mortgages for buy to let landlords who intend letting to housing association tenants.

With maximum rents being reduced to 350 a week (500 for tenants with children), the squeeze is certainly on for those landlords who have previously made a living by making tenancy agreements with housing associations.

This blow does not affect only landlords, of course, it will reduce the number of properties in which housing associations can place tenants, thus making the current housing shortage even worse (The Government is already considering implementing proposals to force council tenants who have vacant bedrooms to downsize - with due consideration to pensioners and the disabled)

For those landlords who do have tenancy agreements with housing associations, our landlord insurance is probably the cheapest on the market, with only two rates, one for outside outer London and one for outer or Inner London. With discounts for excesses and a generous no claims bonus, insurance premiums can be very competitive.
