Renters need a stable home too!
A stable home gives you security and the chance to plan for the future. However, if you’re renting - living on six to 12 month contracts, life can be uncertain and unpredictable.
One in four families now rent privately and they should not be any less deserving of the opportunity of a secure place to call home. A place where they can settle and make plans for the future.
Shelter is calling on the housing minister Gavin Barwell to make five-year rental contracts available to renters. If necessary renters could leave such contracts early, but at least they’d have the option of staying in their home for a secure time period.
Join our campaign calling on housing minister Gavin Barwell to give renters a fairer deal and greater security.
