New White Paper Outlines Proposed Private Rental Regulations

Jun 24, 2022
While the majority of private rented homes are of good quality, offering safe, comfortable accommodation for families; the condition of more than half a million properties pose an imminent risk to tenants’ health and safety, coupled with the threat of sudden eviction hanging over them.
The Government has just published a White Paper, A Fairer Private Rented Sector, setting out plans to fundamentally reform the Private Rented Sector. This policy paper promises a fairer deal for tenants via the proposed Renters Reform Bill.
The Bill fulfils a commitment to replace Section 21 ‘no fault’ eviction notices with a tenancy that gives renters peace of mind so they can confidently make their rental their home.

It will also be made illegal for landlords or agents to place blanket bans on renting to families with children or those in receipt of benefits and even covers pets. Read the full story at local news hub Key questions in a Q&A session include:
