What's in store for renters during 2020?

Story posted: 06.01.20

Following the late December’s Queen’s Speech, there’s a lot in store for renters during 2020.

There is a new Renter’s Reform Bill aiming to revamp eviction notices to protect tenants and offer local discounts for first time buyers, which the government says will be achieved by enabling councils to use developers’ contributions via the planning process.

This scheme will be targeted at local people who cannot otherwise afford to buy a home in their area – including key workers such as police, nurses and teachers.

We will see a further restriction on tenant fees for existing tenancies as well as improvements in property energy efficiency, maintenance standards and better industry practices.

Tenancy deposit ‘passporting’ is widely debated at the moment but is likely to make moving from property to property less stressful when trying to bridge finances between moves.

This is all on a backdrop of heightened positivity around the stability of government going forward which is likely to push up both rental and purchase prices, so now is a great time to get motivated and plan your move for 2020. The first step should be to get expert advice and unbeatable market knowledge from the market leaders Ashtons and plan your move with us.
