What would the PRS look like under a Labour government?

Posted on May 30th, 2024

On Wednesday 15 May 2024, the Labour Housing Group hosted the launch of the report of the Independent Review of the Private Rented Sector.

The Labour commissioned report proposes a major overhaul of the PRS, including compulsory registration/accreditation for landlords and the implementation of rent controls.

The full report can be read here; https://labourhousing.org/wp-content/uploads/2024/05/Independent-Review-of-the-UKs-Private-Rented-Housing-Sector.pdf

The Labour Housing Group say;

”In January 2023 the Labour Party announced that Stephen Cowan would conduct a widespread independent review of the PRS, looking at how to make plans for reforming private renting work in practice. Stephen has taken evidence from a wide range of professional bodies, academics, policy think tanks and commentators, trade unions and renters’ groups, and political groups and politicians. 

The resulting set of proposals has the potential to transform the private rented sector in the UK, giving tenants more choice and control over their homes, greater security, the right to make their home their own and most important of all, the right to live in a home fit for human habitation.”
