    Sex-for-rent offered by landlords.

    Post by papa_umau on Mon 10 Sep 2018, 12:06 pm

    Landlords in the West are offering free rent in return for sex, an investigation from BBC Inside Out West has found.

    The Ministry of Justice says this is illegal and even placing an advert is breaking the law and could result in a seven year jail term.

    But the BBC found examples of adverts online and met some of those who had placed them.

    You can see the full investigation at 19:30 on Inside Out West on BBC One this evening.



    Are you surprised at that ?

    I certainly am not, as private landlords seem to have just too much power in their hands when there are so many people homeless.

    Who is surprised at that then ?

    Certainly not me, as this sounds about right when we know that young people are easy victims when looking for accommodation.

    This is just another form of forced prostitution, and many young women and men have been caught in this trap for many years.

    Any landlord committing this offence should be dealt with the full force of the law.

    The thing is how many victims like this are going to go to the police with such a report ?

    Funny you should say that, as in my early days of trying to rent a flat I too was propositioned by a potential landlord.

    Decency will not allow me to say here what I said to him.

    Of course I did not get the flat.

    That is a bit of a shocker Angie.

    It is good that you were able to tell him where to go.

    It is also good that very few landlords actually practice this kind of a trap for young tenants.
