How do rent controls work

Recommended Posts

Just trying to understand.

lets say in the same building there are two 1 bed flats.

one if the flats is in bad condition and rents for £100 the other is in excellent condition and rents for £200. How do rent controls work in this situation?

will there be a ceiling price with no one being able to charge more?

***Mods as this relates to the proposed labour housing policy which would affect house prices and the economy... Please can you move it to the main

I assume it means you can't raise the rent during the tenancy except by a nominal index linked figure?

Ok I have never had a rent increase in all the years I have been renting. Landlords try but I just say no.

i hope they do not link them to inflation or something silly.
