There have been recent calls from church leaders for more ethical letting agents to be present in the private rental market in London. Leaders would like to see landlords that only offer their tenants cheaper rents and more long-term tenancy agreements.
A meeting of 80 representatives from a number of religious backgrounds covered topics such London’s affordable housing crisis and the possible impact of new welfare reforms.
Meeting organiser Alistair Murray, who is also the director of homelessness charity Housing Justice, welcomed the recommendations taken from the meeting. He even suggested that some ideas could be rolled out for national reaction.
Recommendations for the next meeting are already been proposed.
