Lib Dems respond to Shelter report on private renters spending £11bn more than they can afford

Responding to a Shelter report that found England’s private renters are paying out £11 billion more a year on rent than they can afford, Liberal Democrat Housing Spokesperson Tim Farron said:


“These shocking figures expose the Tories’ failure to tackle the housing crisis, leaving people across the country struggling with soaring rents and insecure tenancies.

“The Liberal Democrats will fix the broken housing market and build a brighter future, by building at least 100,000 social homes a year.

“We will limit rent hikes, strengthen protections against rogue landlords, and introduce a new Rent to Own that allows renters to gradually build up a stake in their property."
