Landlords beware: it’s getting harder to evict tenants!

Following a consultation last summer, the government has announced its intention to abolish ‘Section 21 evictions’ (also known as ‘no fault evictions’).

The current legislation allows landlords to lawfully evict their tenants at the end of their tenancies on 2 months’ notice, without having to rely on any specific reason or fault of the tenant. However, the consultation concluded that the law is unfair to tenants and that no fault evictions should be abolished.

Whether you’re a landlord or tenant, if you need advice on the how the proposed reforms will affect you, please get in touch with Aaron Heslop or Nicola Stewart in our Dispute Prevention & Resolution team.
