Shelter Calls for a New Kind of Renting Contract

Given my concerns about an overheating property rental market, I was interested in the report from Shelter calling for a new kind of tenancy to be introduced across England.  Shelter’s proposals are outlined in a new report which they believe will lead to a more stable private rental market.  This report only impacts on England although readers of previous blogs will know there has been a similar increase in private rentals in Scotland over the last couple of years.  I was interested to read a statistic that the number of people who rent their homes from a Landlord has almost doubled to 8.5 million people over the last 15 years in England.  This is definitely something that the Scottish Government should look at as well.
