The standards of goods and services that are essential, such as food and water, are generally highly regulated. Do you support enforced minimum standards in housing as a precondition of a renting?

organisation: Generation Rent

Yes. I was having this conversation with a friend the other day who lives next to a multiple occupancy property. The lintel looked dangerous as it was crumbling. I'd like to see a minimum standard as a precondition of renting. I would like to see a national minimum standard where individual properties are checked yearly especially in relation to Housing Benefit claims.
