Campaign could improve property to rent in Bristol

Campaign could improve property to rent in Bristol

A campaign calling for councils to help tack rogue landlords could improve the quality of houses to rent in Bristol.

Demand for property to rent in Bristol is boosted by the local student population, with the city's university taking more than 13,000 undergraduates each year.

Now Shelter is calling for local councils to sign up to a minimal accreditation scheme, which could help students looking for houses to rent in Bristol to avoid rogue landlords.

According to the charity, reports of dampness and disrepair in rental properties, unfair rent rises and harassment by private landlords have increased in the last 12 months.

To help oust rogue landlords from the market, Shelter has launched a petition calling for the government to ensure local authorities take action.

Team estate agents can help people seeking flats or houses to let in Bristol to find their ideal home.

Bristol University's student union recommends letting agents to students looking for property to rent for the duration of their course.ADNFCR-1222-ID-800482872-ADNFCR
