I joined over 60 cross-party MPs in writing to the Prime Minister demanding that the Renters (Reform) Bill be prioritised.
This legislation was a manifesto commitment, and the Government is fast running out of time to make good on this promise.
The legislation provides important protections for tenants – including the end of section 21 ‘no-fault’ evictions. Shelter research from 2022 found a quarter of all private renters had lived in three or more private rented homes in the previous five years. This instability prevents renter households – particularly young people – from establishing roots and contributing to their local communities and economies.
I look forward to a response, and demand that the Bill urgently be delivered.
