What is Local government responsibility to statutory homeless and engagement with PRS in Wales
“Housing (Wales) Act 2014 The Housing (Wales) Act, has introduced new legislation that aims to improve the private-rented sector”.
“In addition, the Act will also require closer working with private landlords as the Local Authority’s homelessness duty will be discharged by offering accommodation in the private rented sector”.
“• Work closely with the private rented sector to enable a discharge of duty by the offer of secure, private sector accommodation to people who are owed a full re-housing duty • Increase the capacity of the private rented sector and ensuring that accommodation is well managed, affordable and of a high quality • Ensure that the tenants of private landlords have access to housing related tenancy support • Deal with the impact of welfare reform”
Any of our fellow member have practical experience of this and the form it takes are landlords being contacted or not or difficulties when trying engaged with local authorities ?
