Regulating the privately rented housing sector: evidence into practice

Stewart, Jill ORCID logoORCID: and Moffatt, Russell, eds. (2021) Regulating the privately rented housing sector: evidence into practice. Routledge. . [Book] (Accepted/In press)


Recent years have seen a rise in the number and nature of privately rented properties in England and Wales as the workforce has been under increasing pressure to regulate the complexities of the sector. The range of regulatory tools provides both opportunities and challenges and requires a research and evidence based response to effective strategic interventions that provide appropriate response within a socio-legal framework. We explore theory and practice in this complex policy area, beginning with the meaning of home for private renters, health impacts, investigation and gathering evidence, rights and responsibilities, implementation of a range of criminal and civil remedies and embedding research into practice. This book brings together a range of academic and practice experts in the field in consolidating current thinking in the sector, providing impetus to leaders, practitioners and students to deliver and better reflect on their work in better regulation, with particular reference to responding to the varied needs of stakeholders whilst protecting and supporting tenants.
