Shapps promise to landlords: no more red tape

Published 10 June 2010

Housing Minister Grant Shapps has today announced that he will be scrapping plans to introduce new regulations on private landlords.

There are one million landlords in England – nearly three quarters of which are individuals who may be renting a single room out.

Of the three million private tenants in this country, the vast majority report they are satisfied with the service they receive from their landlords.

Speaking in Parliament, Mr Shapps confirmed that with the private rented sector already governed by a well established legal framework, the Government has no plans to introduce any further regulations.

Instead, he urged councils to use the wide range of powers they already have at their disposal to tackle the minority of rogue landlords that blight some communities, provide a poor service to tenants and damage the reputation of the private rented sector.
