The detail of the Government's anti-social crackdown have been published, including how landlords will be given more powers to eject tenants who misbehave quicker and more easily.
Called the Anti-Social Behaviour Action Plan, it includes a promise that Minister plan to 'change laws and arm landlords with the tools to ensure that anti-social tenants face the consequences of their actions'�.
The measures, which will be included in the expected Renters Reform Act, will make grounds for possession '� the legal reasons a landlord can evict a tenant '� faster and far easier to prove.
'This will mean landlords can take immediate action '� rather than giving two months' notice and waiting for the end of a fixed term, as they currently need to when relying on Section 21,'� the Government says.
This will include:
Evictions expert Paul Shamplina says: 'At Landlord Action we've been pushing the Government to give landlords an alternative to Section 21 notices once this type of eviction is abolished by the Renters' Reform Act, most likely next year.
'It's good news that Ministers have been listening to us and other voices within the landlord community. Landlords need to be able to quickly evict tenants who behave badly within their properties.'�
