How would you feel about compulsory three year tenancies? Would they provide essential security of tenure for families or pose too big a risk for landlords? The government has appointed the third housing minister this year. What will Kit Malthouse bring to the table and how confident are you that housing really is a priority for ministers? Will the Bank of England end nearly a decade of ultra low interest rates and increase them this August? And we discuss a new initiative to help student landlords support tenants with mental health issues. Richard Blanco is joined by Chris Norris, Director of Policy & Practice at The National Landlords Association and Carol Lewis, Deputy Editor of Property and Personal Finance at The Times.
Would you be interested in joining a listeners panel? This would involve a 2 hour meeting in person or by skpe in central London to let us know your views about the programme. If so, please get in touch here. Thank you!
