About as much sense as your tenants suing you because with hindsight, they would have been better off buying places of their own rather than paying loads of money to you in rent.

Boris Johnson has a lot of money. He is also going on trial for lying about the potential of Brexit to improve the standard of living in the UK. It does not. Anyway, I am not here to debate that. I have a proposition that we can ALL agree upon. Here it is: If you have a property in the UK, and you are taking rent from it while living elsewhere, then there is no doubt that you will have lost a lot of money because of the severely attenuated exchange rate. For me, as live in the US, it has declined from near 1.5 to 1.25 in the 3 years of foolishness. It has cost people in the landlord position thousands of £s. I think Boris should compensate.
I think this makes sense. Does anybody else see the legal potential?
... Sadly, Binbin, the reality of the situation is that causation is too remote imo. Then you must consider this individual, who regularly demonstrates his ability to be above UK law. Nurse your losses and wait the opportunity for revenge, taken cold - if you still have a vote.......

If you are a landlord, isn't this a great time to buy more property if you are earning dollars? Surely if you are living in the US you are in a better position than you would be if you were still in he UK.
I have lost 40% is capital value, but now I am considering either retiring if the rate goes to 1:1 or potentially taking advantage of the exchange rate and buying property in the UK.
It also means that my tax bill will be lower this year.
