Retaliatory Eviction

Dear Letting Agent

Last Friday I emailed to update you on the fact that the proposed bill to restrict use of a Section 21, where a tenant had complained about repairs, had been stopped in its tracks in Parliament due to a lack of MPs voting.

What has happened today?

It has come to my attention that the proposed retaliatory eviction bill has been added to the De Regulation Bill currently working its way through Parliament.  The Deregulation Bill may sound familiar to some of you, as this also includes amendments to Deposit Legislation to reduce the risk of “Superstrike”.

The danger to the Letting Industry is that the Deregulation Bill is Government supported, and therefore there is great confidence that this will become law before the next general election.

The proposal can be found here
