Interesting link, Read some of the comments as well;
A Landlord made a good and valued comment, If they don't make a fair profit, why do it, And as a result many are giving up on the renting market, selling up and making many more family's homeless.

I rent from a very good Buddy of mine, Get NO housing benefit's at all and have to keep on working in order to survive.
My Buddy/Landlord and I agree the worst thing was this utter madness when Housing Benefits goes direct to the tenant,
and Not the Landlord, Until this utter madness stops, Things will get far worse.
And it's about time the Government of whatever party Built Social Housing; something that has Not happened for Decades. :angry:

Came across this "Alternative" View on this subject;

Housing “Fake news” deliberately masks high SOCIAL housing evictions
Are you old enough to remember when digital was called Information Technology or IT? Are you, like me, older still and remember when IT was called data processing? If so you will know the maxim that still holds good today that it is only when data is processed does it become genuine meaningful information?

Housing fake news is mostly fake analysis or for want of a more tactful phrase piss poor analysis and nowhere more so than in the lazy analysis the usual suspects of the London-centric commentariat give to rented housing in the UK.

A classic example is the article I read today entitled “100 tenants a day lose homes as rising rents and benefit freeze hits.” It comes from the Guardian and uses other usual suspects of the Cambridge Centre for Housing Research (CCHR), Shelter and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) – the proverbial commentariat – and as its title suggests and its article reads the rising evictions are all the fault of the nasty private landlord being allowed to use no-fault evictions.
