Update on the Renters (Reform) Bill

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: Housing

Today it has been confirmed by the Leader of the House of Commons that the Renters (Reform) Bill will return to the House on Wednesday next week, 24 April .

This landmark legislation will provide a fairer private rented sector and deliver on the manifesto commitment to ban Section 21 evictions.

As part of the bill, we are considering exemptions which would mean that in certain circumstances tenants would be able to leave within the first six months of a new tenancy, such as the death of a tenant, domestic abuse, or significant hazards in the property.

A DLUHC spokesperson said:

“We are absolutely committed to the Renters (Reform) Bill, which will have its remaining stages in the House of Commons next week.

“This bill will abolish Section 21 evictions and deliver a fairer rented sector for tenants and landlords. We will continue to work across the sector to ensure it passes into law as soon as possible.”
