Landlords welcome tenancy changes
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.”
