Shared home tenants ‘may face rent rises or eviction’
Tenants living in shared houses in England could face eviction or increases in rent because of changes to government rules, the National Landlords Association (NLA) has warned.
From Monday 1st October an extra 160,000 houses of multiple occupancy (HMOs) have to be registered with local councils, almost triple the current figure.
The Tenants Union said any increases in rent would be unfair on tenants.
The government said the new rules would raise housing standards for tenants.
