Rent Controls & Abolition of Section 21 Repossessions

Rent controls and the abolition of Section 21 repossessions are outlined in the Green Party manifesto, released today.

In relation to housing it calls for:

  • Rent controls on private tenancies “which reflect average local income rates and the cost of maintenance.”
  • An end to Section 21 repossessions “no-fault evictions”.
  • Measures to make it “easier to set up community-led housing initiatives and for private renters in Houses of Multiple Occupancy to buy and run their home as a housing co-op.”
    The replacement of the current benefits system with a new Universal Basic Income which would be a “weekly payment for everyone”.
  • An end to the hostile environment policy for immigration which includes the Right to Rent scheme.
    Action to “ensure that all 8 million rented homes are A rated for energy efficiency, or as close to this as possible, by implementing a Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard escalator to raise the minimum level allowed from the current E rating to A rating by 2030.”
