Home » News » Housing Market » Every eviction costs landlords £7000 Every eviction costs landlords £700027th September 20160658 Views The average cost to a landlord of their tenant being advised to ignore an eviction notice stands at nearly £7,000, according to a recent survey of landlords across the UK.Private tenants who become unable to pay their rent to a private landlord are often advised by local councils and agencies including Shelter to ignore the eviction notices that are served by their landlords – and to wait until evicted by bailiffs – in order to qualify as homeless and thus become eligible for rehousing.The National Landlords Association’s (NLA) research reveals that the mean total cost of a tenant being advised to remain in a property is £6763. In addition, half (47 per cent) of tenants who have been served a section 21 eviction notice by their landlord say they have been told to ignore it by their local council or an advice agency such as Shelter or the Citizen’s Advice Bureau (CAB).Richard Lambert, Chief Executive Officer at the NLA, said, “We have consistently campaigned on this issue, but despite many warnings to councils and agencies, this damaging advice is still being given out to tenants.“Possession cases can take a very long time to resolve, and aside from putting an unnecessary strain on everyone involved, not to mention the Courts, these findings demonstrate just how costly the advice can be.“Bad, or incorrect, advice hinders rather than helps landlords and tenants who are often already in a desperate situation. It will inevitably damage landlords’ confidence in the local authority and tenants may be put at much greater risk of having nowhere to live.“We hope that the new Homelessness Reduction Bill will achieve its aims of reducing homelessness by giving tenants the support they need while incentivising the good work that landlords already do in communities across the country.” Homelessness Reduction Bill homeless eviction 2016-09-27Sheila Manchester Related articles City dwellers most satisfied with where they live30th April 2021 First-time buyers, not Stamp Duty, now driving market says leading agency29th April 2021 Lettings market booms as millions seek new homes after lockdown29th April 2021What’s your opinion?

The statement on Keble Noticeboard continued that “College is aware of who has turned up unannounced” and that such students “will be removed from college… you cannot retrospectively say that exemptions apply. If you do not decide to leave, there are measures in place to ensure your removal.” Students have been reportedly arriving at night and asking for keys from the Porter’s Lodge or using room keys that they held over the Christmas vacation. While the statement did not confirm how many students had returned by this method, it did give some idea of who: “it will come as no surprise that freshers have been specifically mentioned as coming back without permission”. The Domestic Bursar further made clear that “communal spaces within College will only remain open if social distancing is adhered to, any transgressions and these areas will be shut, this also applies to communal kitchens.” An email from Keble College’s Domestic Bursar stated that “those of you who have arrived back in College without permission… have been reported to the Dean.” It further mentioned that the lodge will now turn away any students who simply arrive without having received prior permission. However, the email from the Domestic Bursar mentioned that any students’ requests to return would have to wait for further information from the University: “as soon as we have guidance from the University as to when and how you can come back we will be in touch.” They have also stated that university guidelines and further college information will follow later this week. They have urged for people to take the current situation in the UK seriously and follow the rules of contacting the accommodation office and asking for permission to return if there is a legitimate reason to do so: “There have been many people who have done so and college has had absolutely no problem with people returning under these circumstances”. Students from Keble College have been “turning up to the college without any permission or having informed the accommodation office”, according to a post on their student noticeboard. Cherwell has contacted Keble College for comment. Image Credit: Nikos D. Karabelas. Licence: CC BY 4.0.

Spiritual Rez have released a new album called Setting In The West. The ten-song effort showcases the band’s musical diversity and relatable lyrics while maintaining the quintessential reggae vibes that they’ve come to be known for.Check out the full album stream here, and follow along with our recap of some of the album’s highlights.Setting In The West kicks off with “Sober”, a slow and plodding tune that showcases the mind of a drunk party-goer who meets the girl of his dreams. The lyrics openly wonder whether this love will last in the morning, once both parties have sobered up, showcasing a reflective attitude that permeates through the EP. “Red Room” is an uplifting tune that features typical, stress-free reggae vibes, advising the listener to “do it right you can’t rewind”. Life is short, and “Red Room” acts as the ultimate reminder to live life to the fullest and happiest. A guest verse by Duddy B of the Dirty Heads rounds things out with a spot-on guest appearance on the track.“Together Always” is a more personal love song, with vocalist Toft Willingham lamenting the stress of going on tour and leaving a jealous significant other at home. The song acts as a reassurance to the jealous lover, discussing the trials and tribulations of being in a relationship while on tour. The lyrics express the strong feelings that the protagonist has for his true love, the girl with a “golden heart” who is waiting for him at home. Vocalist HIRIE adds to the track by playing the role of the lonely girlfriend, providing harmonies and reciprocating the dedication that is on display in the song’s earlier verses.“Square Grouper” is a funky song about finding a large quantity of marijuana in the waters of Florida and profiting from this lucky discovery. For the uninitiated, a “Square Grouper” is a bale of Marijuana that has fallen overboard from a smuggling ship or thrown out of a smuggling plane (the term was coined by the US Coast Guard). In the end, the song tells a tale of wishful thinking, with Willingham singing about taking the risk to search for a “square grouper”, and the hope of becoming a rich man by selling the bounty. While the lyrics are playful, the song tells a vivid tale of desire and fantasy.In the end, this album accomplishes exactly what Spiritual Rez has set out to achieve. Setting In The West is a funky album that tells introspective tales about the search for love, peace, success, and tranquility, all while managing to make these topics fun, relatable, and danceable.
It will be a year since his passing on January 10th, 2016, though the legacy of David Bowie will live on forever. While the tributes have been going on for years, to celebrate the longstanding impression his timeless music has provided, this year has certainly been the year of Bowie. To memorialize the one year anniversary of his death, his closest collaborators will join forces for a tribute show on January 10th at Terminal 5 in New York City.This will be a show from the heart, featuring Mike Garson, Adrian Belew, Earl Slick, Gail Ann Dorsey, Sterling Campbell, and more for “a very special David Bowie concert with Bowie people playing Bowie music Bowie style.” The press release adds, “Individually these former Bowie band members performed, wrote and recorded together with David through several decades including the 1973’s Ziggy Stardust tour, the Diamond Dogs tour, Isolar II (Heroes) tour, to the hugely successful Serious Moonlight tour, the Sound And Vision greatest hits tour to Glastonbury 2000, Heathen, his final A Reality Tour and many of them appeared on Bowie’s triumphant comeback album, The Next Day.” Tickets go on-sale Friday, December 9th at 12PM local time.
Creating a more welcoming climate for all. Recruiting and retaining a more diverse group of students, staff, research appointees, and faculty. Fostering stronger connections with the surrounding Mission Hill community.These were some of the issues addressed at a Town Hall on diversity and inclusion at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health on October 28, 2015. The event, held in Kresge Cafeteria, was open to the Harvard Chan community.Acting Dean David Hunter and Associate Dean for Diversity Meredith Rosenthal spoke at the event, outlining steps that had been taken in recent months, as well as plans for the future, to boost discussion and action on diversity and inclusion.Hunter said that a recent survey by an outside firm suggests that both the financial challenges of coming to Harvard Chan and the overall climate of the School and Boston can serve as barriers to recruiting underrepresented minorities as well as students from other marginalized groups. So the School is working hard to raise money for student financial aid and to address issues of climate, Hunter said. “We know Boston is not perceived as the most hospitable city in America to people of color. But the culture of our own community is something that we can absolutely… improve,” he said. Read Full Story
With the rise of emerging technology, unforeseen security challenges can appear. As 5G becomes ubiquitous, it’s the machines that need to be protected from human beings. That’s because cybercriminals, hacktivists and industrial spies have set their sights on IoT devices as a massive attack surface for denial-of-service (DoS) strikes, data theft and even global disruption.If you’re a communications service provider reading this, maybe you’re thinking “I’m glad that I’m not responsible for securing all those IoT devices.” But you are. If service providers wish to monetize IoT communications, they’ll need to wrap security around those communications. It’s a big task, compounded by the fact that most IoT devices will be so small that they’ll have no built-in security of their own. The stakes for service providers, however, are too high to ignore: personal data, mission-critical applications and even national security are all at risk from IoT-based attacks.Okay, now take a deep breath: You don’t need to solve all these problems today — the IoT revolution isn’t here yet. But you do need to be thinking about IoT security right now, studying the potential attack surface of new applications (e.g., telehealth services, connected cars) and developing strategies to mitigate the unknown unknowns that will invariably arise as new IoT applications are created and launched.What will this new attack surface look like? Let’s dig deeper into a few high-profile IoT applications to understand the potential security risks.eHealthTelehealth use has taken off in 2020, but it was already becoming a popular alternative to in-person healthcare, particularly in areas where healthcare services weren’t readily available. One risk of telehealth, however, is the transmission of highly personal information that could be subjected to a man-in-the-middle attack. This risk becomes even more serious when you consider the number of connected medical devices that are expected to be activated on 5G networks. For example, what happens when a remote heart monitor is compromised or real-time emergency services are disrupted by a DoS attack? And who underwrites that risk: the communications provider, the healthcare provider or the device manufacturer?Energy providersIt goes without saying that energy services are mission-critical applications. One of the more interesting 5G applications is the use of connected devices to manage smart grids, power plants and municipal energy services such as water and electricity. But what happens if cybercriminals seize control of wireless water meters? Or if a regional smart grid is disrupted? As for safety sensors in nuclear power plants that might manage heating and cooling—well, let’s not even go there.Those scenarios may sound unlikely, but attacks like that have already happened and been highly successful. The Mirai botnet is a classic example. It compromised a massive field of 4G IoT devices that nearly brought down the Internet. An interesting caveat: that malicious code was quickly shared on the Internet for other cyber criminals as well. Yes, cybercrime as a service is a now a thing, and a lucrative one at that.Connected vehiclesThe concept of an Internet-connected vehicle may seem futuristic, but almost every modern vehicle is already a connected device. There are GPS connections, digital satellite radio connections, roadside service connections and collision radar connections. Then there are Bluetooth connections to our smartphones, which are themselves connected to a radio access network. And that’s before we even get into self-driving vehicles.Beyond the safety risks of turning our car into a two-ton IoT device, personal data is also at risk in our car. We can log on the Internet right now and track where our family members are located through their GPS device. Going forward, in-car email and streaming video will be packaged with cars for a monthly fee, creating an even greater need for secure, encrypted communications. When vehicle-to-vehicle communications arrive, new security mechanisms will need to be put in place for that too.Ultimately, service providers will need to extend their view of security to not only address subscribers but the millions of connected devices that ride alongside their network in massive Machine Type Communications (mMTC) slices or support enterprise applications at the network’s edge. This will require the ability weigh risk appetite against opportunity, anticipate the unknown and react to new threats in real time. In other words, 5G will be a very different world for service providers from a security perspective.ConclusionFor a better perspective of IoT security in a 5G world, talk to Dell Technologies. We’re committed to providing service providers with end-to-end security solutions that can effectively monetize 5G opportunities while mitigating risk. At Dell Technologies, we believe the world is better when machines and human beings are working together for a common good.
