Wanted: a home!

Long shot but you never know.

I live in Ingleton in one of the very few residential lets. Unfortunately, the landlords have put my house up for sale. I haven't been given notice yet as they are going to keep me in until it sells but as you can imagine, this has created a degree of uncertainty. I really want to stay in the Dales as I work locally, I cave, I run, and am in the process of setting up a social enterprise business. Are you or anyone you know of, a landlord with a property to rent for a quiet chap with a lovely cat? Any leads gratefully appreciated.

The Government have declared war on Landlords and many are getting out of the market. Increased regulation, tax reforms and minimum energy performance are mostly to blame for now. There is also the prospect of even more coming from Labour.

Yes. Which has most likely led to my predicament. Rents have skyrocketed as a result. There's also the ongoing issue of homes in my village being bought as holiday lets.
