Minister pledges court reforms to help landlords
A government minister has promised to look at further court reforms to allow faster repossessions where landlords have legitimate reasons to evict tenants.
Government plans to scrap so-called “no fault” or “no explanation” repossessions previously allowed under Section 21, have caused much controversy in the private rented sector.
But today, writing exclusively for the Residential Landlords Association, minister for the private rented sector Heather Wheeler promises to look at reforming the rules further to ensure that they work for both landlords and tenants.
She says that according to responses submitted to the government, “landlords who experience the eviction process via the courts as unduly slow and complex, are increasingly dependent upon Section 21”.
