U-turn on Section 21 eviction notices

Evolve News

A main commitment of the upcoming Renters (Reform) Bill is to abolish section 21, which is also known as a "no-fault eviction" notice. To help landlords to recover their property, the bill outlines plans to strengthen other grounds under section 8.

However, just before the bill's second reading in October 2023, the government stated that the courts process would need to make "sufficient process" before section 21 could be abolished. This likely means there will be delays to abolishing section 21, with Letting Agent Today dubbing the move a full "U-turn". Find full commentary and further information from Goodlord here:
