The Housing Minister Grant Shapps has again dropped another broad hint that the Government plan to step in and regulate the UK Private Rental sector affecting the rights of both Landlords and Tenants.

A proposed new bill of rights for Buy-To-Let (BTL) landlords and tenants in the UK private rental sector could be introduced by the Government in an attempt to make the PRS market easier to operate in.

The Housing minister said that the plan was to take all the separate housing regulation for both parties and group them in an umbrella-style document, covering all bases. The plans are thought to include regulation covering fire safety and anti-social behaviour.

Mr Shapps said: “One way of reducing the regulatory burden on landlords but also improving the safety and security for tenants would be to provide a central, standardised document, containing all landlord and tenant responsibilities from fire safety to anti-social behaviour.”

Lib Dem MP, Adrian Sanders, is also in favour of the proposed changes, stating that it would “simplify” the private rental sector, in the same way that the planning sector has benefited from a similar scheme.
