Answered By:

Many renters lose out because they are unaware of their rights, which is why I have introduced the London Rental Standard to help tenants understand what they should expect from their landlord or agent. I have also supported the development of DCLG's "How to Rent" guide for tenants and support the new measures to require all letting agents to join an independent consumer redress scheme.
