The article is wrong in that it says the letter comes jointly from the Northampton Student Landlords Network, it does not. NSLN has given the following statement to Northampton Union:- “Private landlords in Northampton appreciate that many of their student tenants will be affected by the upheaval and uncertainty caused by Covid19. As such, many have offered considerable practical support to their tenants, largely to those who have chosen to remain locked down in Northampton. Of course, plenty of landlords themselves have also been affected, perhaps through loss of employment income, and many are understandably concerned for the future, particularly where the rent they receive is their only source of income, and given that most landlords are ineligible for any of the business or personal support measures announced by the Government. Given our understanding that the Minister for Universities has confirmed that scheduled tuition and maintenance payments will continue to be paid by the Student Loans Company, landlords would expect student tenants to continue to pay their rents in the normal way, in full and on time. For individual tenants who genuinely face financial difficulty as a result of Covid19, it is advised that they contact their landlord asap to discuss their specific circumstances. If student tenants can evidence their financial predicament and provide the necessary reassurance that full payment will be made, then landlords are likely to be receptive to flexible ways in which students’ remaining rental obligations can be managed. This could include partial payment deferrals and/or payment in instalments Whilst landlords will do all they can to help in the management of final rent payments, student tenants must understand that their contracts are legally enforceable and unaffected by the current circumstances. They are advised not to default as this may have implications for them, their housemates and their guarantors.” Please could this be rectified. Richard Dawson, Chairman NSLN
