Fitness for Human Habitation: Briefing

Shelter supports the introduction of the Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation and Liability for Housing Standards) Bill, which will help to improve property conditions for renters in both social housing and the private rented sector. The Bill will give tenants a meaningful route to improve conditions without relying on patchy local authority resources. This Bill has cross-party support in Parliament and is being supported by the Residential Landlords Association and National Landlord Association.
