There are three calls for evidence about the PRS currently seeking views.
The first can be found here and is about the powers of local authorities have to enforce legislation already in force. Do they have the capacity and is it effective at dealing with rogue landlord? They also seek views on if selective licensing is effective in promoting higher quality accommodation, what steps local authorities have taken to promote affordable accommodation in their areas and if complaint mechanisms are effective.
The second consultation can be found here and is about protecting consumers in the letting and managing agent market. Essentially this is the call for evidence around agent licensing including views on minimum entry standards, training rules of conduct etc.
Both of these could have a significant impact on our market so you are encouraged to engage with them.
The third call for evidence is about the Right to Rent checks and it can be found here. Whilst not examining any unintended consequences, the call for evidence is looking for those with experience of right to rent checks from the planning for it through to what amounts to success and the sanctions related to it.
