Section 21 notices to be scrapped by Theresa May
by Michael Hart, Head of Legal Affairs - TLA
Latest news from Downing Street yesterday is that the government plans to abolish Section 21 notices in its current form to prevent landlords from taking the 'quick option' to remove tenants.
Section 8 notices will still be viable for removing tenants for breaking the terms of their tenancy agreements but the new proposals will reduce the number of snap evictions where a landlord has no genuine reason to issue a section 21, causing tenant unrest and unfair eviction.
Section 8 notices, thankfully, remain the prominent avenue for members of The Landlord Association. The most common foundation for issuing such notices is for rental payment arrears.
If any landlord is unclear on the proposed plans to scrap Section 21 Notices please contact The Landlord Association by emailing email@example.com.
