LandlordZONE readers are being asked to complete a short survey on the Government’s plans to abolish Section 21 ‘no fault’ evictions.
Outlined within the recent Fairer Renting White Paper, the government plans to prevent landlords in future evicting tenants without having to give a reason.
Instead, Ministers plan to bolster the Section 8 process but this would mean landlords going through a slower and more expensive eviction process, and having to reveal why they want to repossess a property and evict the tenant.
The survey is being conducted by Landlord Action, whose founder Paul Shamplina (pictured) is on a working group which advises the Government on the private rented sector to help inform future legislation.
“This information will be helpful in reforming grounds for possession under Section 8, making sure that landlords have effective means to get their property back when necessary once Section 21 is abolished,” he says.
The survey also asks landlords if they have ever had problems gaining access to a rented property to undertaken key safety and regulatory checks such as completing gas or electrical safety checks.
