Abstract: The Conservative Party emphasizes market mechanisms and increased supply, while the Labour Party prefers legal reforms to protect tenants' rights and improve housing safety standards. Voters' decisions will directly affect the direction of the UK housing market in the coming years, as well as the quality of life of individuals and communities.

Housing has become a central issue of concern for all sectors of society in the UK, particularly in the context of the cost of living crisis, energy efficiency improvements, and rising mortgages and rents. As a result, voters are particularly concerned about how political parties are tackling these challenges.

The Conservatives plan to reintroduce the Renters (Reform) Bill in the future, through which they aim to reform the private rented market. Their proposals include repealing section 21 ("no fault") eviction powers and strengthening the grounds for eviction for tenants with anti-social behavior. In addition, the Conservatives have pledged to build 1.6 million homes in suitable locations, while continuing to push for a target of 300,000 homes per year. These measures are designed to promote fairness in the marketplace and address under-provision, particularly in protecting rural areas while ensuring that adequate housing is available where it is needed.

In contrast, Labor's position focuses more on improving the regulatory framework for the private rental market through legislative means. Labor plans to immediately repeal Section 21 eviction powers and take steps to improve building safety standards to address the Conservative government's shortcomings in these areas. In addition, Labour made it clear in their manifesto that they would protect tenants through the implementation of rent control, particularly in the face of unjustified rent increases.

In terms of increasing the supply of housing, both the Conservatives and the Labor Party have clear objectives. The Conservatives have pledged to build 1.6 million homes over the next few years, while emphasizing the provision of housing in suitable locations while protecting rural areas. Labour, however, has set a target of 1.5 million new homes as part of a drive to boost economic growth, with an emphasis on putting local authorities and communities at the center of decision-making on house building.

In terms of contrasting rental policies, the Conservatives have made it clear that they do not support the introduction of rent control, whereas Labour explicitly supports the introduction of rent control through legal means to tackle unreasonable rent rises.
