Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

THE Res­i­den­tial Land­lords As­so­ci­a­tion has wel­comed the Gov­ern­ment’s an­nounce­ment on ten­ancy re­forms in the pri­vate rented sec­tor.

Speak­ing at the Con­ser­va­tive Party Con­fer­ence, Eric Pick­les, called for “fam­ily-friendly ten­an­cies” in the sec­tor.

Alan Ward, Chair­man of the RLA, says: “The RLA has led the charge against calls for a rigid, stan­dard five-year con­tract, which would not be needed by the vast ma­jor­ity of pri­vate sec­tor ten­ants. It would also have given ten­ants a one way ticket to leave the prop­erty when­ever they liked.

“Un­der to­day’s an­nounce­ment, ten­ants would be bet­ter in­formed about op­tions al­ready avail­able, to them to be agreed by both the ten­ant and land­lord.”
