I recently wrote to the representatives of the main political parties in Brighton and Hove regarding Generation Rent, asking what they and their political parties would be offering renters after 2015 on issues including high rents, insecure tenancies, and poor practice by some landlords and, in particular, letting agencies.
I am extremely impressed by the time and thought given by the seven of the nine who have responded. I have posted the responses I have received. You can find links to the responses here:
I am still hoping to receive a response from Peter Kyle (Labour candidate, Hove and Portslade) and will publish it once I receive it.
Meanwhile, there is a petition by The Fair Rent Campaign on the Brighton and Hove City Council website on these issues
(Note: This post has been updated on several occasions as and when I have received responses from the Party representatives).
