The S21s issue could be reduced, if Councils simply paid the rent direct to landlords. If a tenant cannot afford to pay the rent, landlord takes tenant to court, the eviction happens and the council finds housing sometimes via a more expensive B&B. By the council simply paying the rent then all of the above upheaval, angst of all parties, judicial process costs are avoided. The tenant remains where they are so little upheaval to their lives; the landlord is paid the rent and can pay their mortgage; extra judicial process costs are avoided. Seems like a win-win in the majority of cases. There will be a minority of really bad tenants and possibly some rogue landlords left in a bad place, but these can go down the current route. When the tenant leaves, in due course, perhaps when a council house has been located, then the council funds the refurb back to the original condition. Social housing is the responsibility of the council. We all pay taxes to fund the social care. Currently landlords are paying their taxes and also having to fund the mortgage payments, the judicial process fees and the refurbishment costs as well. The councils are trying to avoid their social housing duties, and costs, by delaying the eviction until due process has been performed. However this action leads to increased costs due to the judicial process costs and eventual unnecessary emergency housing costs. Additionally the landlord has a void whilst the refurbishment takes place and a new tenant found, which puts the landlord under further financial hardship. So the silo approach by the council means that the local council social housing cost is reduced, but the central government costs go up by more. So overall the current approach to the issue seems to be wasting public money, causing social distress and general unrest.
