Government releases “How to Rent” guide
June 11, 2014
The Government has released its guide, How to Rent: The checklist for renting in England, in a drive to educate the public about renting best practices.
The guide, in an attempt to inform and educate tenants and landlords, has all the important ‘need to know’ rental information in one place.
The Government hopes that, by making the public more aware of their rights, they can help the industry as it strives to stamp out bad practices.
Kris Hopkins, the Housing Minister, said that “encouraging a new generation of well-informed tenants with easy access to useful and understandable information would help root out the small minority of rogues and raise the game of any landlords who don’t know what is expected of them.”
Young Group believes that educating tenants and landlords is an important step in helping to improve the sector. This guide is a step in the right direction in the fight to help improve the growing Private Rented Sector market.
