Email to Karen Buck MP re S21 Debate

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

Many thanks

Ann

Bad tenants who cost money to deal with = higher rent for good tenants.
Is that fair?

Karen Buck has responded that she is receiving the emails and will look at them. Not sure about that! When I send mine I will ask for confirmation it has been received. I've never really had much success in getting my local MP to pass letters or emails on to another person, particularly if they are a different party!

Is that the automated response from her?

Reply to the comment left by Luke P at 20/11/2018 - 13:21I should have written "seeking possession", not "gaining possession".
