London Landlord Accreditation Scheme (LLAS) welcomes a report published on Tuesday 9 September by Camden Council and the London School of Economics examining what can be done to influence the security and price of privately rented homes in London, while enabling landlords to run successful businesses.
The report, Rent stabilisation: Principles and international experience, recommends that Camden Council, which administers LLAS on behalf of all 33 London boroughs, should consider working with our members to enable longer-term tenancies with index-linked, rent increases, voluntarily agreed by landlord and tenant.
LLAS vice chair, Andrew Woolmer, said: “We welcome any attempt to improve the private rented sector for everyone in London and, in particular, our accredited landlords.
“We know that some landlords and tenants would welcome the sort of measure recommended in the report as it could provide a greater level of financial certainty for both parties.
“We look forward to exploring the possibility of taking this idea further with a small group of our accredited landlords to see how this would work in practise.”
