Am I a bad person for being a landlord?

This week on Ask Rob & Rob, Graeham asked:

Am I a bad person for being a landlord?

A slightly tongue-in-cheek question, but an interesting one nonetheless.

The answer is clearly no, but there is nuance to be considered: at one end of the scale, some landlords refurbish derelict properties and provide great new housing for the market, and at the extreme other end, some foreign investors purchase properties designed solely to be investments, never to be lived in, which is potentially damaging to the market.

In the majority of cases, landlords are somewhere in the middle, and aren’t particularly good or evil. They’re just trying to get by and make a better situation for themselves.
