Rented Housing: Students

Question for Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities

UIN 45211, tabled on 2 September 2022

To ask the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, if he will make provision for students in the private rented sector to continue to rent on a fixed-term basis that covers their academic year, as part of the proposed renters reform bill.

We expect most students will continue to move in-line with the academic year. However, the proposed reforms will support student households who have children or local roots to remain in their properties after studying if they wish to. It will also mean that students are not locked into contracts when their circumstances change or if property standards are poor.
