"With 15% of Gosport families living in private rented accommodation people deserve to have swift, effective routes to complain and receive redress when things go wrong” Caroline Dinenage MP

Local MP, Caroline Dinenage, has today welcomed news that the Government is bringing forward proposals to strengthen consumer rights in the private rented sector.

The Government believes the current redress system is fragmented and does not provide for every eventuality tenants can find themselves in.

The proposals will be set out in a Green Paper later this year which include:

- Creating a single ombudsman

- Fill in existing gaps of redress

- Improving ‘in-house’ complaints

Commenting Caroline said; “These proposals are a very welcome step to improving redress for Gosport as well as UK tenants. I look forward to supporting these proposals when they come before Parliament.”
