Liberal Democrat Communities Minister Stephen Williams has announced measures giving tenants greater protection against rogue landlords.
Thanks to Stephen's work and support by Liberal Democrats in government, people living in rented accommodation will now be protected against revenge evictions.
Today's measures would stop the small minority of rogue landlords who shirk their legal responsibilities and use the threat of eviction to silence tenants from speaking out against sub-standard and unsafe accommodation.
Stephen published amendments to the Deregulation Bill, which will extend the existing restrictions on a landlord’s powers to evict, where they don’t protect a deposit or have a licence they are required to hold, to situations where a health and safety hazard has been identified by environmental health officers.
Our last attempt to ban revenge evictions was blocked by just two Conservative MPs. Don't let them do that again.
