Your Member of Parliament for Harrow East

Andrew Percy MP

Bob Backs the Homes for Habitation Bill

Further to his previous work as author of the Homelessness Reduction Act 2017, which is due to come into force in April this year, Bob has also lent his support to the Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation and Liability for Housing Standards) Bill which is being brought forward by Karen Buck MP. The Bill will give renters in Harrow and across the country the right to take their landlord to court over unsafe and poor housing conditions, which is important given that more than 135,000 homes in London have a hazard in their rented home which poses a “serious and immediate risk to health and safety”, according to the recent official statistics. This is the equivalent of 1 in 12 rented homes in London.
