That this House notes that there remains a huge need for affordable rented property and that increasing numbers of tenants are dependent on the private rented sector; further notes that tenants of landlords who have unlawfully let their mortgaged properties will face the possibility of immediate eviction through no fault of their own; believes that private tenants should not be the victims of financial irresponsibility by their landlords of which they can have no knowledge; and urges the Government to conduct an urgent review of the situation and to come up with legislative proposals to give private tenants statutory protection in the case of property repossessions.
