RLA PUBLISHES PLANS FOR “FIRST CHOICE” PRIVATE RENTED SECTOR

Politicians have a golden opportunity to make private rented housing a first choice for those seeking a place to live. That’s the message from landlords today as they launch their manifesto for this year’s general election.

The Residential Landlords’ Association is calling on the political parties to support the growing private rented sector as it works to meet unprecedented demand.

As the only housing tenure that is growing, estimates suggest that individual landlords have invested a net sum of around £50 billion a year in homes to rent.

The RLA is calling on all parties to build on this, and encourage the majority of landlords, who are individuals, to invest in new properties to rent in order to provide tenants with greater choice over where they want to live.
