New Forest


A new ombudsman and housing portal

A new Private Rented Sector Ombudsman will provide fair, impartial, and binding resolution to many issues and prove quicker, cheaper, and less adversarial than the court system. Membership of the Ombudsman will be mandatory for private landlords who rent out property in England. Local councils will be able to take enforcement action against those who fail to join.

Additionally, a new Privately Rented Property Portal will help landlords understand their legal obligations and demonstrate their compliance. The portal will also provide information to tenants to help them make informed decisions when entering into tenancy agreements.
