MHK backs Landlord and Tenant Bill

Sat, 29 Mar 2014

An MHK says he has heartfelt support for the Landlord and Tenant Bill after visiting a constituent suffering problems with an absentee landlord.

David Cretney says the living conditions of this tenant were desperate - fuelled by the uncommunicative owner of the property not living in the Island.

The Private Landlords Association will meet next week in Douglas to discuss changes to the Bill after members of the HoK made their amendments.

Mr Cretney says agricultural, private and public sector tenants should be better protected:
