The Renters (Reform) Bill had its Second Reading on 23 October and is currently going through its Committee Stage in the House of Commons.

The Bill will abolish Section 21 evictions for all tenants in the private rented sector, including those in receipt of pension credit. This will deliver on the Government’s manifesto commitment and provide security for tenants living in the Private Rented Sector.
