It has tabled amendments to make it illegal for landlords and agents to have blanket bans on renting to people who receive benefits or who have children – ensuring families aren’t discriminated against

Our Commercial Property team are at home in matters involving the Landlord and Tenant 1954 Act. We aim to provide both Landlords and Tenants with the information they need in a way that it can be understood, without any unnecessarily complicated information.
