Amongst all this negative publicity about uncaring, money grabbing landlords – here’s a photo to prove that some landlords really do want to support the homeless. This is Mr Hmolandlady having just completed his run in the New Forest Half Marathon in aid of Centrepoint. He began supporting the charity a year ago when his wife accused him of being uncaring and showed no empathy to the waifs and strays passing through our houses. Unable to get in on the action with Room Rental (as hmolandlady is such a control freak), he decided to contribute to Centrepoint’s campaign to provide rooms for vulnerable teenagers. From what I’ve seen, it’s a worthwhile charity who could do with as much support as possible and, if you’re considering letting HMOs and have your doubts, give to Centrepoint instead – much the same thing but the support workers are better qualified!
