Tories 'should improve PRS'

Tories 'should improve PRS'

Team Association customers might be intrigued to read that one national charity is calling on the Conservative Party to improve the private-rented sector (PRS).

Leslie Morphy, chief executive at Crisis, which was founded in response to the film Cathy Come Home in 1967, said that the PRS has the potential to provide all tenants with well-maintained and managed properties.

Her comments precede tomorrow's launch of a joint proposal from Crisis and the National Landlords Association (NLA), entitled New directions for renting: A new vision for the private-rented sector.

"They must ensure that support is available to help people on low incomes access the PRS, drive out the worst elements of the sector and reform housing benefit to promote housing stability and ensure that work always pays," stated Ms Morphy.

NLA chairman David Salusbury added that while most landlords are professional and business-orientated, a small number of operators continue to bring the PRS into disrepute.
