Commenting on calls for a renewed strategy for tackling homelessness by the Communities and Local Government (CLG) Select Committee, Richard Lambert, Chief Executive Officer at the National Landlords Association (NLA), said the following.
“The NLA welcomes the CLG Committee findings, and its recognition that private landlords play a crucial role in preventing homelessness.
“We are delighted that the Committee has reached the common sense conclusion that housing benefit levels must reflect the cost of providing decent quality housing and that local authorities need to do more to help tenants that fall into arrears before tenancies are put in jeopardy. However, landlords who home tenants that rely on housing benefits receive an alarming lack of support and understanding from both local and national government.
“The NLA is pleased to support Bob Blackman’s ‘Preventing Homelessness Bill’ which seeks to address many of the issues highlighted in this report, and we are working with him, Crisis and the Committee to ensure that it gets on the statue book”.
