With the General Election looming, landlords are being given an opportunity to quiz parliamentary candidates on their party’s plans for the private rented sector.

With private rented housing now comprising 20% of all households in Cardiff and likely to grow further, issues related around housing supply, rents and standards will be an important consideration for many people when they go to vote.

Hosted by the Residential Landlords Association on 28 th April, panellists will include former the Business Minister and Liberal Democrat Candidate for Cardiff Central, Jenny Willott, Conservative Candidate for Cardiff North, Craig Williams and former Wales Office Minister and Labour Candidate for Caerphilly, Wayne David. The RLA is also seeking representatives from Plaid Cymru and UKIP.

Commenting on the event Douglas Haig, Vice-Chairman of the RLA said:

 

“With the General Election just over a week away people want to know what their local candidates will do for them and their community if they are elected.

 

“This election is one of the closest on record and with private rented housing continuing to grow in Cardiff, issues pertinent to the sector are likely to be a key factor for many people.

 

“This event will help landlords understand what the political parties are proposing and what will be done to improve the sector for the benefit of tenants and landlords alike.”

Further Information

 

  • The event is taking place at 6pm on Tuesday 28th April at the Holiday Inn, Castle Street Cardiff.

 

 

  • The hustings forms part of the RLA national work to encourage and support landlrods to engage with candidates of all parties. Details of the RLA’s work can be found here.
