Parliament

Retaliatory Eviction

What happened at the vote today?

Dear Letting Agent

In Parliament today, there was a second reading of a private members bill to reform Section 21 notices with the effect of restricting such use when a complaint has been made by a tenant.

In addition, there were some other proposals such as recognising the recent decision in Spencer V Taylor for the length of notice required for a periodic tenancy.

What happened in Parliament?

There were not enough MP’s who voted for the Bill, so it will not progress any further.  Therefore for the time being, changes to a section 21 and proposals to restrict retaliatory evictions have been placed on the back burner.

Kindest regards
