Expert comment: UK government’s plans to end no-fault evictions

Categories: Salford Business School

In response to the UK government’s plans to end no-fault evictions, Salford Business School’s Lecturer in Law, Charlie Seager, shares her thoughts.

“The proposed ban to no-fault evictions is certainly welcomed. The bill proposes to protect tenants from Section 21 evictions without fault which is a great step forward. However, we shouldn't overlook the fact that the bill fails to address unfair rent increases. To address challenges tenants continue to face further, the government will also need to ensure its development around the level of evidence required to take action against anti-social tenants doesn't undermine the heart of the reform.”
