The appalling rise in the number of people sleeping rough in England illustrates the importance of private rented accommodation, according to The Deposit Protection Services (The DPS).

More than 4,000 people a night have been sleeping rough on England’s streets, up 16% year-on-year, according to the latest figures from the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG).

The data shows that more than half of councils in England recorded an increase in rough sleeping compared with the year before, which is a shocking rate.

The government said it was determined to help the most vulnerable and was investing £550m to tackle the problem, but that is unlikely to stop thousands of desperate people from being forced to sleep rough.

Local Authorities and Housing Associations across the UK can now access a brand new solution to help many more low income renters find new homes, reduce homelessness and save public funds, through The Ark Passport.

Whether you are a social or private landlord, protecting your rental income is paramount. The risk of non-payment can be managed in a number of ways, and The Ark allows landlords to manage this risk accordingly.

So please visit http://www.arkpassport.co.uk for full information.
