The Renters (Reform) Bill will make it easier for landlords to evict anti-social tenants under the assured tenancy system. The Bill was introduced to parliament on 17 May 2023.

The Department has also committed to explore a '3 strikes and you're out' eviction expectation for all social landlords in the recently published Anti-Social Behaviour Action Plan. Updates on this work will be provided in due course.
