Government consults on longer tenancies in PRS 05/07/2018 Labelled as Consultation

The government says it is committed to increasing security for tenants in the private rented sector, while balancing landlords' needs to regain their properties when their circumstances change.


The government has now issued a consultation paper "Overcoming barriers to longer tenancies in the private rented sector" inviting views and comments on the benefits and barriers of landlords in the private rented sector offering longer tenancies. The government is also seeking views on a proposed model for a 3 year tenancy with a 6 month break clause, and the options for implementing this. The government says the model is designed to give tenants in the private rented sector certainty over rents, and retains the flexibility that many desire.


The consultation closes on 26 August 2018.


This consultation on options to increase security for tenants in the private rented sector comes at a time when councils and council tenants are still waiting to hear whether the government intends to press ahead with legislation introduced in the Housing and Planning Act 2016 to abolish secure lifetime tenancies and introduce mandatory fixed term tenancies for council tenants.
