Channel 5 show to follow yet more difficult tenants

Channel 5 will continue to provide an insight into a number of tenants and landlords across the UK, as feuds between them get out of control.

Extreme Nightmare Tenants, a companion series to ‘Nightmare Tenants, Slum Landlords’, delves further into the dark side of the housing crisis.

The observational documentary highlights alarming tales from all sides of the buy-to-let system, drawing attention to stories of unruly tenants who refuse to pay their dues and rogue landlords who have failed to live up to their responsibilities. 


The latest episode, which will be aired on Channel 5 at 10pm, will feature a case of landlords with nightmare tenants and the difficulties they had in evicting them, including Yossi Harel, who rented out his family home in north London to take a job in Israel. 

He thought he had the perfect tenants - a teacher and his family - but before long they stopped paying rent.

Plus, a builder who came up against his tenant and her aggressive boyfriend and a lawyer tasked with evicting an anti-social tenant in Blackpool.

Eviction specialist Paul Shamplina, founder of Landlord Action, stars in today’s show. 

He commented: “This episode features the extreme cases of evictions from the previous five series of Nightmare Tenants, Slum Landlords.

“Evicting a tenant for a landlord is a last resort, especially now in the midst of Covid 19. These episodes see three stories I had, where tempers get frayed by tenants and landlords.  

“Sometimes I feel like I need a UN Helmet to keep the peace, especially if the tenant is still present on the final day on Eviction D Day, and if they owe thousands of pounds  of rent and the property is damaged.  

“I had a tenant spit at me recently, which wasn’t nice. There is always a reason why a tenant stops paying or refuses to pay. 

“The new sixth series [of Nightmare Tenants, Slum Landlords] will be out very soon. I filmed that prior March.”

    The program seems to inform dodgy tenants that there is no point in paying rent as it now takes even longer to get them evicted !

    I think we can safely say that the blood pressure of every LL watching increases!!

    The poor old TV surely get mightily abused by LL!!



    At least you get to see them being evicted within an hour of being made aware of the problems. If only real life were like that!

    I'm also not allowed to watch such programmes and since my wife cut back on going out to the shops, gum etc. I'm finding opportunities to catch up on such programmes pretty limited - but probably better for my blood pressure!
