Renters need a stable home too!
A stable home gives you security and the chance to plan for the future. Yet, if you’re renting - living on six to 12-month contracts - life can be uncertain and unpredictable.
One in four families now rent privately, but renting shouldn’t mean you forfeit the opportunity of a secure place to settle and call home.
Last year 89% of you told us you thought short-term rental contracts are unfair. Now we need to tell the government.
That’s why 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 by introducing longer rental contracts.
