New TV series to explore ‘slum landlords’ and ‘rogue tenants’

Channel 5 has announced a new television series which will focus on the UK’s Private Rented Sector.

Nightmare Tenants, Slum Landlords promises to provide an insight into the millions of landlords and tenants across the UK. 

The six one-hour episode series is set to cover numerous horror stories, including those of a flat covered in black mould and a pensioner who had to repossess their property from an abusive tenant.

The series will also follow eviction specialists dealing with difficult tenants and council teams identifying rogue landlords. 

"With 8 million of us renting, it's a huge issue and this dramatic series exposes some shocking tactics on both sides," comments Michelle Chappell, Channel 5 commissioning editor.  

Channel 5 says the series is likely to be broadcast later this year.

    Sounds like a fair, balanced, representative sort of programme :)

  • Jon  Tarrey

    Such a typical Channel 5 programme. Desmond has a lot to answer for.

    Definitely one to avoid.

    Sounds like a cracker!

    I'd expect nothing less from Channel 5. Cheap, sensationalised, divisive, unrepresentative dross!

    The idea that the program represents both landlords and tenants is a good shout. However it would be good to remember not all landlords and tenants should be perceived negatively.
    Might even be quite entertaining!

  • Jamie  Humm

    Sounds like car crash TV at its finest. As Jon says, one to swerve.

    Not really the sort of press coverage the industry needs - then again, hardly anyone watches C5 anyway. So I doubt it'll have a major impact.
