The Government have today announced an “end to unfair evictions” and propose to abolish Section 21 notices; read the government’s full statement here.

The RLA have made a valid response, “Section 21 to go: Housing reforms risk hurting tenants“.

“The government will shortly launch a new consultation on proposals to remove the ability of landlords to use ‘no fault’ evictions under Section 21 of the 1988 Housing Act” – as soon as we have details of this we will let our members know and strongly urge you to have your say, as we will as an organisation.

Before the consultation begins you can have your say by completing this RLA survey.

A lengthier document, the results of the consultation on Overcoming the barriers to longer tenancies can also be read.
