Consultation description

On 16 June 2022, the Government published A fairer private rented sector – a landmark white paper for the private rented sector – which sets out this government’s commitment to introduce a legally binding Decent Homes Standard to the private rented sector for the first time.

This will improve parity with the social rented sector where there has been a decent homes standard in place since 2001. The system will also be fairer for good landlords by making sure those who do not treat their tenants fairly are no longer able to get away with it, tarnishing the reputation of the sector as a whole.

The Government have undertaken a range of stakeholder engagement in the last 3 months, running a number of in-depth discussions with key organisations on how we apply a Decent Homes Standard to the private rented sector. This consultation builds on that engagement and seeks further views on how to apply and enforce the standard in the private rented sector where it is not already being met. We encourage members to send their views and feedback on the proposals and questions contained in this consultation.
