Boris launches London's Rental Standard

Boris has launched a new London Rental Standard.

This new voluntary scheme hopes to raise standards in the capital's private rented provision.

Landlords and letting agents can sign up to London's rental standards here.

pdf of the rental standards are located here.

To meet the accreditation requirements landlords will need to attend a one day course and sign a sheet of paper declaring that they are a fit and proper person. Those that do will get a badge.

It sounds like another exercise in form filling to me. I doubt it will address the problem elements within the sector.

Boris said: "This standard aims to improve the experience of everyone."

Let's wait and see if it actually does.

The BBC shares some opinion on the new rental standards as does the Evening Standard.
