How International Students can Benefit from the Program?
After the changes incorporated into the Wales housing system through Renting Homes Act 2016, international students benefitted from the developed laws. With the discussions of adequate and affordable private housing in Wales, UK students again will have a lot to gain and battle the UK housing crisis.
This survey is to keep a check on rent control measures and especially targets private accommodations. As the number of students entering the UK has increased manifolds, many of these students are choosing private student accommodations for stay during their study abroad journey.
The hike in need for accommodation also resulted in the overpricing of PBSAs and other types of student accommodations. This study and initiative by the Welsh government will ensure the safety of students against economic exploitations and ensure they are given proper privileges by private property owners.
What Rent Control Measures are Planned by the Wales Government?
