Karen Buck, whose Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Bill is set to become law, has a backbench debate on ‘S21 and how to improve security for tenants’ on 6th December. I asked her on twitter to take into account the views of landlords as well as tenants. Her reply was ‘I am quite willing to hear other arguments. I may not agree but let’s talk.’
So, I’m going to respond by email with some information about why an outright ban on S21 would be a disaster for landlords and tenants alike.
Scotland has, of course, already abolished S21 and put this in its place: Click here
Given the inevitability of the demise of S21 in England and the likelihood of the Scottish model being adopted, do you feel the Scottish model is a reasonable alternative? If not, why not? And what important amendments would you make?
I want to include views of landlord colleagues as well as my own.
If you would like to comment directly to Karen Buck, her email is BUCKK@parliament.uk
