star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to protecting the rights of tenants and giving them more security.</p><p>We recently consulted on ways to overcome the barriers to landlords offering longer, more secure tenancies in the private rented sector. We sought views on a three year longer tenancy model with a six-month break clause and asked for views on its viability, and how it could be implemented.</p><p>We have not made any policy decisions about tenancy length or how our proposed model will be implemented. We are currently analysing responses and this work will inform any next steps of how we can support landlords to offer more secure tenancies. We expect to respond to the consultation, setting out next steps, shortly.</p><p>In the meantime, we have published a model tenancy agreement which landlords and tenants can use for free as the basis for longer, family friendly tenancies.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government currently has no plans to requisition empty homes that have been used for speculation or money laundering for this specific purpose.</p><p>We are continuing to support local authorities to encourage efficient use of our existing stock, making best use of homes that are long-term empty to increase the supply of housing. At Autumn Budget, we announced proposals to strengthen the powers available to local authorities to tackle empty homes. Local authorities will be able to charge a 100 per cent council tax premium (currently 50 per cent) to homes that have been empty for more than two years.</p><p>This Government is also committed to preventing and reducing homelessness in England. That is why we are aiming to halve rough sleeping by 2022 and eliminate it altogether by 2027. We are investing over £1.2 billion to reduce homelessness and rough sleeping in England by 2020. This includes a £100 million programme for low-cost move on accommodation to enable people leaving hostels and refuges to make a sustainable recovery from a homelessness crisis into independent living.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government publishes regular statistics on rough sleeping, statutory homelessness and homelessness prevention and relief in England. These are published at a local authority level. The latest statistics can be found at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/homelessness-statistics" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/homelessness-statistics</a></p><p>England has a strong homelessness safety net, providing protection to the most vulnerable in our society so they always have a roof over their heads.</p><p>In 2011, we changed the law so that councils can place families in decent and affordable private rented homes. This now means homeless households should not have to wait as long for settled accommodation.</p><p>The law is also clear that households with dependent children should only be accommodated in Bed and Breakfast (B&amp;B) in an emergency and then for no longer than 6 weeks.</p><p>Our Homelessness Advice and Support Team, drawn from local authorities and the homelessness sector, is supporting councils throughout England and providing targeted challenge. There are some councils who are successfully reducing the number and length of time families are spending in B&amp;B accommodation; we expect areas in similar situations to follow their example.</p>
