Action to curb 'revenge evictions' against renters who make complaints about the state of their homes will be unveiled tomorrow.

Ministers will vow to introduce longer tenancy terms to give renters more security.

The move comes amid concerns that some people do not complain about the standard of their property for fear of their tenancies being cut short.

Housing Secretary James Brokenshire is set to outline plans for a minimum three-year tenancy term, with a six-month break clause, to help renters put down roots. 

But he will argue that it will also give landlords longer-term financial security.
