Single, silver bullet solutions rarely work, we must look at the bigger picture says Yolande Barnes
Once again an argument is raging (at least on my Twitter feed) around the regulation of private residential tenancies. On the one hand, some landlords’ organisations are arguing that ending no-fault evictions risks depleting supply while other lobby groups deride this argument, saying ”no homes will be demolished, so how can supply be depleted?” The debate is polarised, sides are taken as they have been for centuries along the lines of landlords vs tenants, or the rapacious landowning rentiers vs beleaguered, exploited renters. Both sides are right in their own way and at the same time terribly wrong. It all depends on the prism through which you are viewing the issue.
