The new Renting Homes (Wales) Act has been published. I am wondering what people feel about the changes to Section 21 and if they feel that would be a compromise if it were implemented in England? >> https://gov.wales/housing-law-changing-renting-homes
I have copied a small part of it below:
Renting Homes (Wales) Act – Changes to evictions and notice periods
Ending a tenancy is also changing. If a contract-holder breaches the occupation contract, the minimum notice period a landlord can give is one month. The notice period can be shorter for serious rent arrears or anti-social behaviour.
No-fault evictions, previously known as a Section 21, have a minimum notice period of six months. No-fault notices cannot be issued until six months after the contract starts.
Landlords will not be able to issue a no-fault notice if they haven’t complied with certain requirements, including registration and licensing with Rent Smart Wales and correctly protecting the deposit.
Renting in Wales and break clauses
As of 15 July 2022, break clauses can only be added to occupation contracts with a fixed term of 2 years or more. Landlords will not be able to exercise the break clause within the first 18 months of occupation.
