The National Landlords Association (NLA) and the charity for single homeless people, Crisis, are looking to the Conservative Party to develop a new vision for the private rented sector.

Measures to clamp down on rogue private landlords and provide more access to sustainable accommodation are among the changes required for this part of the property industry, they claim.

NLA chairman David Salusbury said that the industry needs to "shine a light"on the landlords that are not following best practice.

"We know that most landlords are professional, business-orientated individuals, but we also know that a small minority of rogue operators continue to bring the entire sector into disrepute,"he explained.

During the Conservative Party conference in Manchester today (October 7th), a publication called New Directions for Renting: A New Vision for the Private-Rented Sector will be launched.

It will detail plans to improve the private rented sector for both private landlords and those who sign tenancy agreements with them.

Meanwhile, further landlord-related issues will be discussed at the NLA National Conference in Birmingham next month.
