I think the main thing is that it is part of the terrible aspect of our society thats destroying communities and making us into a bunch of competitive individuals. What happened to looking after people around you and taking care of people. Now were all just looking out for our selves. Luxury ruins everything. The problem is people forget that were all the same and when you take care of each other it makes the world a much happier place to be in. I'm not criticising any particular individuals, just the concepts that govern us
Surely providing rental accommodation is looking after others who would otherwise be homeless as they can't afford to buy...
Is buying to rent immoral? Watch

Purchase to rent essentially reduces the amount of properties that are available for live-in ownership. Increased scarcity in property forces demand and prices up. What I'm saying, in very un-erudite words, is that if fewer people bought to rent, far far more people would own live-in property. You might argue that there will always be people that want to rent, but it's not really the point I'm making: the housing situation in the UK at the moment is such that it is extremely disadvantageous to rent compared to buying.
