The Private Rented Sector (PRS) is in desperate need of reform.
Landlords are currently able to end tenancies without the need for reasonable grounds and are unrestricted in the amount they can increase rents. As a result, tenants lack stability and security, and may face frequent and expensive moves.
As access to social housing becomes scarcer, the PRS is housing an increasing number of people who are moving on from rough sleeping. As it stands today, the PRS is not fit to support this group, as people with a history of rough sleeping are unlikely to have the financial resources or resilience required to withstand frequent evictions.
Therefore, we support the Government’s intention to reform the PRS and particularly welcome the opportunity to comment on limiting rent increases.
