The National Landlords Association (NLA) has today written to new Home Secretary Sajid Javid to outline its concerns regarding Right to Rent.
In a letter to congratulate Mr Javid on his appointment as Home Secretary the NLA used the opportunity to press the former Minister for Housing, Communities and Local Government head to review the controversial right to rent scheme in light of the government’s own figures which show the policy costs an additional £4.7m per year.
Richard Lambert, CEO of the NLA said: “In his time as Housing and Communities Secretary, Sajid Javid worked with the NLA to support the private rented sector (PRS).
“We have reminded Mr Javid of the effects the Right to Rent scheme has had on would-be and vulnerable tenants, its excessive checks and lack of monitoring, and the additional cost it is placing on an already pressurised sector.
“There is now an opportunity for us to work with Mr Javid, and with new Housing Secretary James Brokenshire, to look again and come up with a more practical, workable system than the one we have.”
