To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government whether he plans to make any changes to guidance on the responsibilities of private landlords to their tenants.

In August 2011, a package of guidance for both landlords and tenants was placed on my Department's website:

http://www.communities.gov.uk/housing/privaterentedhousing/

The guidance covered the rights and responsibilities of tenants and landlords in the private rented sector, and has recently been updated to take account of the amendments to the tenancy deposit protection legislation which came into effect on 6 April this year. We do not have any plans to make further changes to this guidance at the present time.
