Private Rented Housing
Communities and Local Government
Andrew Stunell (Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Communities and Local Government; Hazel Grove, Liberal Democrat)
Many local authorities already do excellent work in partnership with private landlords where that helps to address local priorities. They do this through training, accreditation and awareness-raising, alongside direct engagement through local letting agencies and private leasing schemes. We welcome these schemes, but know that they work best when tailored to local circumstances, and have no plans for any top down intervention from central Government.
