New rights for private sector tenants

5 July, 2008

There was a piece by RenterGirl in the Guardian today which made me check her blog. Anyway it got me thinking about what we should be doing to stuff the new Rackmanites. How about the following for starters:

  • Minimum of a years notice unless there’s a court order re: anti social behaviour
  • A Decent Homes standard for the private sector with vigorous enforcement 
  • Rent increases no more than average wage inflation
  • Tenants to be able to redecorate
  • Compensation if services like central heating aren’t repaired quickly
