Rugg, J. and Rhodes, D. (2003) 'Between a rock and a hard place': the failure to agree on regulation for the private rented sector in England. Housing Studies, 18 (6). pp. 937-945. ISSN 0267-3037
The private rented sector in England presents a number of widely-acknowledged problems for the policy maker including relatively poor property conditions and sometimes low management standards. There are a number of intractable obstacles to dealing with these problems, including an inability to agree on how the sector should be regulated, extreme variation in letting arrangements, a lack of clarity on the relationship between regulation and supply, industry distrust of regulation, and an anti-landlord culture.
