This debate pack provides background on the Government’s white paper A fairer private rented sector which was published on 16 June 2022, together with links to other relevant sources of information.

The contents of the white paper are broadly welcomed by tenants and their representative bodies.

The National Residential Landlords Association (NRLA) “supports the Government’s aim of improving the experience of renters in the private rented sector” (PDF) but is stressing the need for landlords to feel the changes are of benefit to them. A failure to persuade landlords risks, the NRLA argues (PDF), landlords reducing their portfolios or leaving the sector, which in turn could exacerbate the rental supply crisis.
