Yeah, had a stressful period where a previous landlord gave us notice and we couldn't find anywhere to rent for 3 months. I also have friends in full time employment who were effectively homeless for 2 weeks recently between homes, no one should have to go through that.
I am not a child and well aware of the additional costs of maintaining a property, have had home insurance as a tenant. Our last boiler service was free, property tax is way less than the council tax we paid in the UK plus our previous LL wasn't great at fixing things or gardening (they lived in house before us) so we did most of the maintenance on the property ourselves.
