MPs after housing vote

Tory MP are  looking for the housing vote. We all love MPs at this time in the electoral cycle. They suddenly find a soap box to stand on. This is just like Tory MP Laura Sandys the MP for Thanet South.

Her beef is with landlords when she can smell the damp or lack of proper ventilation.

In her words:

"When I visit bad housing in my constituency, I can “smell” the damp, the lack of proper ventilation, the lack of care and attention long before I get to the door. These properties are not decent – not homes for children, and they make a mockery of my belief that everyone deserves a place of security that can and should be called home. Last Wednesday, I called on the Government to extend the Decent Homes Standard to the private rented housing sector. "

Landlords all know that damp & mould problems in rental properties  are frequently a management issue where tenants fail to ventilate a property correctly or take measures to reduce condensation.

It will be interesting to see what Laura's strategy is to find a reasonable way though this management minefield.  Talk as we all know is cheap and you can read more on Conservative Home.
