The plot has thickened with regard to what will happen to Section 21. Yesterday, Esther McVey made the following statement with regard to its proposed scrapping:
There was a subtle change in the language used by McVey; away from the previously more definitive statement from Theresa May that Section 21 would definitely go, but that there would be some consultation on how it would happen.
McVey went on to say:
“Our consultation on how the new system should operate closed on 12 October. We are now carefully considering the responses received and will publish our response in due course.”
However, much to my astonishment, I saw that on the same day, Monday, that McVey said the Government is looking at the responses, the Liberal Democrat peer Baroness Grender introduced in the Lords ‘The Rented Homes Bill,’ for its first reading. Click Here
It is stated that this is:
“A Bill to amend the Housing Act 1988 to abolish assured shorthold tenancies; to extend the grounds upon which landlords of residential housing may recover possession; and for connected purposes.”
What on earth is going on?
More importantly what will the Government’s response to this be?
Will they let this anti-landlord Liberal Democrat peer call the shots?
What’s more, why is the Government aligning itself with this left-wing, anti-private property rights agenda?
And above all, when will it see sense and revert to supporting the most critical tenure in this country, which in addition to providing millions of excellent homes for all kinds of people who need or want to rent, also serves as THE safety net for the homeless?
