NRLA London Regional Webinar: What might the London Mayoral election mean for housing in the capital over the next 5 years?
Londoners will head to the polls on 6 May to elect a Mayor and 25 London Assembly members. The mayor has a £19bn budget and has a role in housing, planning and the environment.
The Labour candidate, Sadiq Khan has put rent controls at the heart of his campaign to be re-elected as London mayor. He has vowed to push the Prime Minister to give him the power to limit the amount landlords can charge tenants.
His Tory rival, Shaun Bailey, believes rent controls always lead to higher rents. The Green Party candidate, Sian Berry has promised to freeze rents. The Liberal Democrat candidate Siobhan Benita wants to bring thousands of empty homes back into use and build more homes for rent on Transport for London-owned land.
This session provides a chance to hear from Meera Chindooroy, NRLA Deputy Director, Campaigns, Public Affairs & Policy and your London regional reps on what might be in store for London landlords once the election is over.
