No. We have a buoyant private rented offer in London, and high levels of satisfaction among tenants with their homes and landlords. There is of course room for improvement, which is why I have been actively promoting landlord accreditation for a number of years, am seeking to introduce the London Rental Standard later this year, and am promoting a range of private rented products on GLA land.
