|Good private rentals depend on co-operation of LA’s, Landlords & the RLA|
The RLA’s work with the Open Doors project in helping to promote equality in the private rented sector was praised at the Plenary in Wales last week.
David Melding, Assembly Member for South Wales Central, made the comments during a discussion about a new report published this week, by CIH Cymru and Tai Pawb, on private renting & mental health. He pointed out an example of a tenant developing a mental health issue as a result of rent arrears building up.
He noted that the area of vulnerable people in the private rented sector was an area of public policy which needed cross party support & development to meet modern trends and thought most landlords would jump at the chance to have such training to help them maintain long term tenants.David Melding AM then asked for the Deputy Minister for Housing & Local Government to commend the work of the Residential Landlords Association (RLA) in our efforts to reduce inequality and discrimination in the private rented sector. Specifically, the Assembly Member was referring to the Open Doors project, which is a joint project being run by the RLA and charity Tai Pawb.
