The Renters’ Reform Bill: How can the upcoming Bill best deliver for tenants and landlords?

About Onward
Onward is an independent, not-for-profit think tank registered in England and Wales (no. 11326052) whose mission is to create new ideas for the next generation of centre-right thinkers and leaders. We are a new kind of campaigning think tank, focused on developing policies that work, are politically possible, and which have the support of an effective campaign to make them a reality.


About Shelter
Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help. We’re here so no one has to fight bad housing or
homelessness on their own.


About this report
This is a summary report of a major Onward and Shelter roundtable partnership held in March 2021. The virtual roundtable event brought together leading parliamentarians and charitable experts to explore how policymakers and politicians can ensure that the
upcoming Renters’ Reform Bill can best deliver for renters and landlords.
