Abstract: First paragraph: The private rented sector has long had the unenviable reputation as the “tenure of last resort”. As far back as the 1915 rent strikes in Glasgow, private tenants have campaigned about unaffordable and poor quality housing, with more recent movements also drawing attention to insecure tenancies.
