Election manifestos: Housing pledges laid bare

With all major parties publishing their political manifestos this week, James Wood, Head of Policy at the NRLA takes a deep dive into the election pledges - and what they mean for you and your business.

The election campaign is now in full swing, with most parties releasing their finalised manifestos setting out their plans should they form the next Government.  

With around half of landlords and agents still undecided, the property sector’s vote is still very much up for grabs, and likely to be influenced by each party’s plans for the private rented sector (PRS). 

With the housing crisis high on the agenda, every party has something to say on the PRS and house building more generally.  

We have a full breakdown on our election hub of all the policy promises from each party but today we’re comparing a few of the key themes about the burning topics from the last parliament – the Renters (Reform) Bill proposals and energy efficiency.
