Levelling up the Private Rented Sector

The Government recently published a paper on Levelling Up, it can be seen here.  Note our comments on this paper

In it they have made reference to a separate White Paper on the PRS, to be published sometime this year.  This follows a report by the National Audit Office discussing the Regulation of Private Renting. 

iHowz have published their own report on matters we believe should be included  – it can be seen here

In it we echo comments made by Civil Servants, that the existing legislation commenced in 1985, and has been added to/amended in a piecemeal fashion since then.  We call for ‘a ‘root and branch’ review of the current system, rather than the ‘tinkering at the edges’ of this highly regulated sector, poorly served by an overstretched, legal system.’




BEIS minister, Grant Shapps announced £1bn boost for ECO scheme to insulate homes, from April 2023
Landlord association, iHowz, question why it has taken so long, to offer so little, so late, given we are still waiting for the new standards
