Renters’ reform

A new law tabled in parliament is looking to ban landlords from evicting tenants with no justification as part of a long-discussed overhaul of the private rental sector in England.

The most significant change of the Renters Reform Bill is the abolishment of Section 21, which allows landlords to evict tenants without providing justification. Tenants would also be given the legal right to request a pet in their home and it would be made illegal for a landlord to refuse tenancies to families with children or those in receipt of benefits.

Research from Shelter shows that nearly 230,000 private renters had been served with a no-fault eviction notice since April 2019.
