Social landlords have until 12 October to respond to the Government’s Consultation on a proposed rent cap on social and affordable rented homes from April 2023. How should you respond to the consultation and what are the implications of a rent cap for your business, for house building, and for your tenants (including tenants not benefiting from the cap). How does the rent cap square with inflationary pressures on businesses, the cost of living crisis for individuals and soaring energy costs for all. We will include a Q&A session to allow participants to share their views.
This webinar will look at the legal and practical implications of a rent cap and provide you with our view on the likely impacts and how best to respond to the Government’s consultation.
