The investors who now own the New Era Estate are reportedly planning to increase their tenants' rents to market levels from near-social rent levels. They claim this is in order to pay for extensive refurbishments. What support can the GLA or other public agencies offer private landlords refurbishing housing in London so that they don't have to pass costs on to low income tenants?
