Several of the 2020 Presidential hopefuls have revealed their housing plans, mostly focused on affordable housing. Recently Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) released an updated proposal which advocates for the creation of a “Tenant Protection Bureau”, with the stated goals being;
- Protect and uphold the rights of tenants
- Tackle the growing cost of rent
- Invest in safe, healthy, and green public housing
- Fight exploitation by corporate landlords
With the ongoing challenge of easily identifying owners/landlords, one key component would include the creation of a “national public database of information about large corporate landlords, by requiring them to report key data to HUD.”
