Who should landlords and tenants vote for?

Following the release of the political parties’ manifestos over the past week, we have created a visual guide with the help of local government, law and housing expert Mark Smulian, to interpret how the six main political parties’ policies could impact landlords and tenants.

It’s a simple mathematical fact that there are more tenants than there are landlords, and so politicians who are interested in winning votes will make their pitch to the former.

The main parties vary in the attention that they give to the private rented sector, but for each the emphasis is very much on tenants, and so landlords will need to work hard to make their weight felt in the political process.

Read each party’s pitch to landlords and tenants in the infographic below.
