With private rents in London up an average of nearly 7 per cent this year, the London Assembly have decided to take a look at what’s going on.
Over the next couple of months, the Housing and Regeneration committee are doing a review of London’s private rented housing. They’re asking for views on three areas: affordability and tenure, quality and standards, and tenant and landlord rights.
They’re asking for views on the first area, affordability and tenure, by Monday prior to their meeting on 20 September. We’ll be sending some of our thoughts over – but the more the merrier! The more people they hear from saying that they’re sick of paying rip-off rents and public money going straight into greedy landlords’ pockets, the better!
