A report prepared by Citizens Advice New Forest reveals that people renting privately in the New Forest have a hard time of it.
Following national campaigning work by Citizens Advice in 2015 (Settled & Safe: A renter’s rights), Citizens Advice New Forest decided to undertake its own research on the local private rented sector. We have just issued our report: “A review of private sector rented accommodation in the New Forest.”
The review found significant barriers for householders seeking to rent in the New Forest, particularly low income households.
Other issues potentially affecting all tenants:
Andy Clapper, CEO of Citizens Advice New Forest, added: “Housing issues are one of the top problem areas for our clients. So, disappointing though they are, I am not surprised by these findings and I think it is good that we have highlighted the problems being experienced in our community by low income households. Whilst some of the factors are outside local control, I hope, by sharing these findings and working with others, particularly the District Council, we can make a positive difference for private renters in the New Forest.”
