Renters (Reform) Bill dropped

On 22 May, Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak MP, announced that a general election (GE) will take place on 4 July.

Parliament ended before the Renters (Reform) Bill could complete its passage, meaning it will not become law. It will now be up to the next Government to decide what shape reform of the private rented sector will take.

We will also publish the NRLA’s own key asks for the PRS - a bold vision to boost rental supply, retain landlord confidence, and ensure accessible justice for both landlords and tenants.

Renters (Reform) Bill

The Renters (Reform) Bill represents a seismic shake-up of the private rented sector, perhaps the biggest in over 30 years. The bill sets out the government's plans to fundamentally reform the private rented sector (PRS) and level up housing quality.

Our latest factfinder provides an overview of the Bill and sets out the NRLA's recommendations on particular issues.
