Tories under fire for tenant protection plan

Meanwhile, the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) accused the Conservatives of failing to understand the rental market, after yesterday’s announcement of new Tory measures to protect tenants from repossession. A spokesperson from ARLA said that while they welcome additional support for tenants in these tough times, the proposal to bring forward the planned extension of repossession notice to tenants will be almost worthless coming at the ‘wrong side of the repossession being granted’.
