We hope that by introducing these measures standards in the local rental market will be improved, providing better conditions and more choice and stability for local people. We hope that landlords will benefit from the additional support the different options provide. I’d urge anyone that rents out a property in the borough to come along and find out more about how we can work together for local people.”The Rent it Right Marketplace for landlords will take place on 2 October 2018 at Hall Place from 12- 2pm.
