No need for landlord and tenant bill, says MLA

 

There's no need for the proposed landlord and tenant bill on the Island.

 

That's the belief of the Manx Landlord's Association, following a public consultation by government on legislation designed to improve standards and create a centralised register for private sector landlords to ensure they and their properties meet a set of minimum standards.
