Overcoming the barriers to longer tenancies in the private rented sector.
2nd July, 2018
The government is committed to increasing security for tenants in the private rented sector while balancing landlords' needs to regain their properties when their circumstances change.
The government is inviting views and comments on the benefits and barriers of landlords offering longer tenancies. They are also seeking views on their proposed model for a 3 year tenancy with a 6 month break clause, and the options for implementing this. The model is designed to give tenants certainty over rents, and retains the flexibility that many desire.
