Thirty years on from the 1988 Housing Act, the private rented sector is out of control

Post by Admin on Tue May 08, 2018 11:21 am

In 1988, Margaret Thatcher’s government introduced the Housing Act in a bid to expand the private rented sector in the United Kingdom. The act greatly shifted the power balance in favour of private landlords, through ending rent regulations and creating a new tenancy which allows landlords to evict tenants for no reason.

Thirty years on, its legacy is one of insecurity and homelessness.

Wasn't it the purpose of the Act. To "free" the "private sector"?
