Kerry McCarthy Labour MP for Bristol East
As part of our plan to fix the broken housing market and tackle bad landlords we’ve pledged to put power in the hands of tenants with a new charter of renters’ rights. Our charter will be based on:
- The right to an affordable rented home: with rents capped at inflation nationally, powers for further controls for areas facing run-away rents and local housing allowance increased to cover the cost of renting;
- The right to a secure rented home: with new open-ended tenancies, protecting tenants from unfair eviction;
- The right to a decent rented home: with new minimum standards, backed by a new annual property MOT and fresh local enforcement powers.
