London’s 2m Private Renters ‘Let Down’ Over Spiralling Costs

London’s mayor has been challenged to “do more” in helping the capital’s two million private renters to support themselves and keep rent rises down. Green London Assembly Member Sian Berry laid down that challenge to Sadiq Khan. Drawing on results from her survey of more than 1,500 London renters, Berry asked the Mayor what support London’s one million private rented households could expect, especially on costs, and for help with setting up a renters’ organisation for London that builds upon current renting groups and campaigns. In response, the Mayor said he had no plans to continue to seek further powers over rents on existing homes or to offer practical support to renters groups. Read more on the 24Housing website.
