Everybody has a right to a secure and decent home. The Renters (Reform) Bill increases protections for all renters, including older renters. Abolishing section 21 no fault evictions, reforming possession grounds and providing stronger protections against backdoor evictions, means older tenants will have much more security in the new system.
