One Response to Property Tribes interview Fergus Wilson and John Paul

  1. I have had a message from Fergus Wilson about this post. He says:

    Dear Tessa,

    I saw your bit about myself and John Paul who seems a very nice chap. I do not know where he comes from but in my part of the world Landlords are not taking HB tenants in the top of the range houses.

    There is often a top up of up to £300. If the tenant is able to pay that figure it raises the question of where did the £300 come from? By formula if the tenant has £300 available her HB should be reduced by £300.

    John Paul makes various points about LHA delivery but Landlords in this area simply do not want tenants on HB. In the credit crisis most said NO DSS.

    We have the worst housing crisis since the war. It is a case of supply and demand. The supply is outstriped by demand due to immigration and in part people living longer.

    Fergus Wilson
