Rental Changes Expected

The government has set out a series of changes to planned protections for renters in England, after some Conservative MPs raised concerns they would be too burdensome for landlords.

The proposals include making tenants commit to a minimum six-month period when renting a property.

Campaign groups representing renters accused ministers of watering down the legislation to appease landlords.

But landlord groups said the changes were fair and balanced.

Other changes include delaying a ban on no-fault evictions for existing tenancies until an assessment by the justice secretary on the the readiness of the court system to deal with repossession claims is published.

The Renters (Reform) Bill, which was first introduced to Parliament last May, would abolish no fault-evictions in England, where tenants can be forced to move out with no justification.

It would mean that landlords could only evict tenants under certain circumstances, including when they wish to sell the property or when they or a close family member want to move in.

Last month the the BBC understood that the Government were now watering down their proposed reforms.

And the bill’s progress through Parliament has been slow, after around 50 Tory MPs, some of whom are landlords, called for changes.

They raised concerns the legislation would see more landlords sell up, reducing the number of rental properties available.
