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.
