In the past few weeks the Coalition Government has announced it will sweep away key regulations introduced by the previous Government to protect private tenants. These include a national register of landlords set up to allow tenants to make basic checks on their prospective landlords and enable Rotherham Council to enforce letting rules more easily.

There are thousands of private tenants in the Rother Valley, all of whom could be affected if regulations on their landlords are relaxed. It is disappointing that the Government sees fit to axe the regulations protecting private tenants. They should rethink their plans and retain the valued protection.
