More And More Talk On Fixing The Private Rented Sector

Recommended Posts

I'm seeing more and more discussion, articles and even politicians talking about serious overhaul of the PRS. Even Boris Johnson has said that a rental standard needs to be introduced to combat punishingly high rents because it is affecting London businesses ability to employ people which would have been anathema even a few years ago. Something has changed.

Anyone else have the feeling that the PRS is going to get some sort of rent controls sooner or later? I think with the 2015 election not far away and everyone well aware of the need to do something about the PRS that this is going to happen. Both parties are now talking about an end to pensioner benefits so that holy cow has been killed and perhaps politicians are now sensing that the younger generation will not go on funding the retirement of the older generation through high rents and generous pensions without something in return.

Maybe a Help to Rent scheme where government will guarantee deposits, rents and any damages ?

Excellent!

......the unfairness of it all, it very much looks like renters in the governments eyes are not worth guaranteeing or investing in...only property purchasers have any kind of value, and are worth saving in this country, along with the landlords, property agents and building corporations. :blink:

That's because most of the Government are landlords.
