New Government guide on renting

Housing Minister, Kris Hopkins has released a new downloadable 'Guide on How to Rent'.

The guide is for both tenants and landlords and includes -

  • Advice about tenancy deposit schemes, bills and tenancy agreements
  • A checklist of paperwork the landlord must give to tenants
  • Details of repairs the landlord must make and the right of a landlord to enter a rented home
  • How to end tenancies and return deposits
Kris Hopkins said: 

“The new guide will give tenants the knowledge they need at their fingertips and help raise the game of landlords who may not know what is expected of them.”

“We are doing all of this without the need for excessive state regulation that would destroy investment in new housing, push up prices and make it far harder for people to find a flat or house to rent.”

“This government is turning up the heat on the small minority of rogue landlords that are not playing by the rules and giving tenants a rough deal.”
