The Labour Party will ban ‘no fault’ evictions if it is elected into Government, according to leader Jeremy Corbyn.
Corbyn says the practice of letting landlords evict tenants for any reason leads to many becoming homeless.
He says it also breaks up communities and families, according to The Independent.
The Labour leader says the party’s next manifesto would contain plans to repeal legislation that allows ‘no fault’ evictions.
The current Labour manifesto also says the party would set up a Government housing department to tackle affordability if elected.
This department would be responsible for improving the number, standards and affordability of homes.
The party also promised to build at least a million homes, including 100,000 council and housing association properties a year for “genuinely affordable rent or sale”.
