Allow a 16 & 17 year olds to take on a tenancy agreement

Comment 6th July 2010

Individuals under age of 18 are not allowed to hold an interest in land. 16 year olds are allowed to leave school and find work. They can live independently from their families. They can fight (and die) for their country. They are allowed to bear children, yet they are not allowed to hold a tenancy agreement.

This is hampering their independent living (if they choose it), and a curse to landlords (especially the uninformed ones).

Allow 16 & 17 year olds to be responsible and accountable. They may surprise you.

Why does this matter?

This legislation is hampering 16 & 17 year old's right to live independently (if they choose it), and is a curse to landlords (especially uninformed ones). It is out of date legislation which needs to be modernised.

Allow 16 & 17 years olds to be responsible and accountable. They may surprise you. Protect the landlords from legislation which merely hampers their ability to provide accommodation to those who want it.
