Could steep Number of Tenant complaints Boost Homeownership?
There could be a rise in the number of people in the UK considering buying their own property to avoid grievances with their landlord, after it was revealed that more than 14,000 complaints were made in the last year from annoyed tenants.
Citizens Advice dealt with a huge number of grievances regarding repairs and maintenance in rented accommodation between January 2018 and January 2019 – and this was mainly due to tenants not knowing how to make an official complaint against their landlord.
Chief executive of Citizens Advice Gillian Guy recognised there are many tenants around the country that are unhappy about their living conditions and are left unprotected. She said “People who rent shabby or unsafe homes face a risky, costly and complicated process when they want to complain.”
This comes after the government announced there will be a new House Complaints Resolution Service that will serve both homeowners and tenants, and give them a place to go when they want to express an injustice.
While this will enable millions of people to register their problem officially and seek help in resolving it, many renters could be inclined to avoid landlord problems entirely and buy a home of their own.
