Government Urged To Delay Pay To Stay

Councils and arm’s length management organisations are calling on ministers to delay the introduction of Pay to Stay to avoid a ‘tight’ timetable, after the government failed to publish regulations before the parliamentary recess. Local authorities were expecting draft regulations on Pay to Stay to be published before the end of the parliamentary term last Thursday. However, the regulations, which need to go before both houses of parliament, are not now expected until September at the earliest when parliament returns. This has caused concern that without draft regulations to work with over the summer, local authority landlords may struggle to implement Pay to Stay- under which higher-earning tenants pay up to market rent - from next April as intended.
