Prime Ministers Questions House of Commons 05/09/2018
Question from Labour MP Helen Hayes – Dulwich and West Norwood
“It has been reported this morning that the Treasury and Number 10 are blocking plans for legally binding 3 year tenancies for private renters. This is of great concern to private renters in my constituency including many families sending their children back to school this week not knowing where they will be living this time next year.
“Will the Prime Minister make a clear promise to private tenants that they will be entitled to 3 year tenancies in law.”
Response from Theresa May:
“Can I say to the Honorable Lady that we are keen to support tenants to access longer more secure tenancies, whilst also ensuring obviously landlords are able to recover their property when needed.
“The consultation on overcoming the barriers to longer tenancies in the private rented sector closed on the 26th August. It considered the various barriers to longer tenancies and how to overcome them, it did propose a new 3 year tenancy model with a 6 month break clause. We asked for views on viability on how that could be implemented, we are now analysing those responses and will provide information on the next steps once we have done that.”
