Establish a guarantor scheme for people seeking private tenancies
The Government should set up a scheme to act as a guarantor to new renters who have no guarantors for whatever reason. This will help people who can afford to rent privately but cannot get a guarantor to get a home so that they do not become homeless.
At this time of the coronavirus an increasing number of people are being rejected as tenants because they lack a suitable guarantor for the rent despite having the financial means to pay the rent. This adds to the homelessness crisis, particularly among young people.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
