The Country's 11Million Private Renters Need A Consumer Rights Revolution - Labour Will Give It To Them

One in five of us rent from a private landlord, including 1.6million families with kids, but the laws of the land haven't caught up with the way we now live. In practice, in 21st Century England, you have fewer rights renting a family home than you do buying a fridge-freezer... After seven years of failure the Conservatives have no plan to fix the housing crisis. They've turned a blind eye to renters' problems and weakened key protections. A Labour government would introduce proper consumer rights for renters - with legal minimum standards so that every rented house is fit to be called home.
