Jersey Tenants Forum call for the reintroduction of Eviction and Rent Increase Ban - Channel 103
17th February 2021
Yesterday Channel 103 reported on a call from the Jersey Tenants Forum, to reintroduce the ban on rent increases and evictions. The JLA Committee have produced this response, which has been sent to the Jersey Tenant's Forum and the islands media.
The debate regarding Licensing of landlords in Jersey is fast approaching. Next Tuesday, the 8th September, our States Members will debate, and then vote on Proposition P106/2019. Feedback from our members has told us that you feel these changes would be excessively bureaucratic and intrusive. The JLA Committee has been busy the last few days contacting States Members to discuss the proposition, and to put forward a proposal that we think would be a better way forward to improve standards for tenants. We share this with you below.
