Scrapping section 21 could help solve UK homelessness epidemic

The Government’s recent announcement to scrap Section 21 and ban no-fault evictions is one of the biggest moves to improving tenants’ rights and promoting more stable housing for privately rented households.

Currently, Section 21 enables private landlords to evict tenants with as little as eight weeks’ notice after a fixed notice period has come to an end. The 1988 Housing Act is one of the biggest causes of family homelessness within the UK, while also limiting the tenant’s ability to maintain secure and stable housing.

So what does this governmental reform mean for tenants and landlords Aston spoke to Sam Miles, a landlord’s advice expert from Just Landlords.
