Shelter’s response to the government’s proposals on longer tenancies.

Shelter’s response to the government’s proposals on longer tenancies.

Polly Neate, chief executive of Shelter, said:

“This is an important step forward. Losing a tenancy is the main driver of homelessness and also causes huge instability for renting families so everyone who rents will be very pleased to see a move towards longer tenancies. But if the government really wants to stand up and provide stability for renters, they can and should go beyond three years to provide real protection from eviction, and the huge upheaval of having to move home, jobs and schools.

“The government needs to bring forward new legislation quickly – with tens of thousands of families already homeless and many more at risk of the same fate, we simply cannot wait.”
