With average private rent in Hackney at £2,125 per month, letting agents charging up to £500 every move, and some landlords hiking up prices, renting can leave many people in vulnerable situations.
A Labour government would make 3-year tenancies the norm and ban letting agents’ fees for tenants.
In Hackney we will establish a Council-run lettings agency and continue to improve support for private renters.
