Everyone deserves to live in a safe and secure home and ensuring a fair deal for renters remains a priority for this government. The Queen's Speech committed to introducing a Renters Reform Bill that would repeal section 21 'no fault' evictions and we will do so as soon as time allows in this Parliament

As set out in the Government's White Paper, 'A fairer private rented sector' last summer, the market has begun to develop innovative solutions to the specific affordability issues posed in the gap between deposits and several providers are now offering lifetime deposit solutions for tenants. Government announcements will be made in the usual way.
