Headline news in The Guardian this morning, however it comes as no surprise. To be honest this has been an issue for far longer than this PwC report suggests.

It is to be welcomed that there’s comment on improving the rental sector and length of tenure, this coupled with some form of control on the rent that can be charged to ensure things don’t spiral into an unaffordable mess for tenants.

Oh, if the mention of rent controls has anyone in a spin please be aware that the new national minimum wage is a form of price control so clearly we can pick and choose when they are relevant and correct.
