The Campaign for Bedsit Rights says council inaction is encouraging landlords to push tenants protected by the Rents Act out of their properties. It fears the revival of property prices could see a return of illegal evictions and harassment of private tenants, the Evening Standard reports (p17).

In a report, the campaign says around 45,000 of London's 250,000 private tenants complained of harassment or illegal eviction last year, yet the councils with the highest number of private tenants, Westminster, and Kensington and Chelsea LBCs, prosecute an average of three landlords a year.
