We are running headlong to crisis point I think and I have raised all my rents (20+) last week. Normally I don’t raise rents but some tenants have been in properties for 10+ years so I need to adjust with the times. In London the rate seems to be £900 pm per room!!!

The less legislation, the freer the market, the more competition there is. Whatever happened to the free market economy?? Rent controls next which will obliterate it completely I guess.
