The private rental sector remains a market in which consumers are woefully under-protected. We want this to change. We don't see why renters should expect anything less than the protections consumers take for granted elsewhere - repairs that get done, systems to protect them from cowboys, refunds when things go badly wrong.
We are campaigning for better protections for private renters. We believe that:
Success! The Deregulation Act is in force! From 1 October onwards, retaliatory eviction is unlawful.
'We welcome the commitment of the new Conservative government to introduce a Housing Bill within the first 100 days of the new Parliament as a first step to fixing the housing crisis within a generation. However, current safeguards for private renters lag behind those for tenants in other tenures, and immediate action is required to create a level playing field and ensure that all private renters are guaranteed a settled and safe future'.
