The need to increase protections for renters - those inside and outside of Rent Pressure Zones (RPZ) - is clear. Through ‘Housing for All’, the government will link future rent increases in RPZs to consumer inflation. This change is in addition to other protections for renters introduced by the government. The provision for bi-annual rent reviews (that is, every two years) for those living outside RPZs has been extended for three years. There is also a restriction on the amount of upfront payments a landlord can ask a tenant for at the beginning of a tenancy.
