Section 21 Ban - Government Consultation and Press Release

Over the last few years the government has implemented several new acts for landlords to adhere to such as the Deregulation Act 2015, and more recently the Guide for tenants: Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act 2018. The roll out of Universal Credit has also impacted landlords who let to tenants in receipt of housing benefit, owing to the delays of payments and Department for Work and Pensions (DWPS) maladministration, such as paying the tenant when an APA (Alternative Payment Arrangement) is in place.

Theresa May’s announced that she is now looking to ban Section 21 is another major hit for private landlords that will undoubtedly put a further strain on the current housing shortage. We believe that with greater restrictions on re-gaining possession of their properties, landlords will be reluctant to house vulnerable households or those on low incomes. It could harm the very people the government are trying to protect.

From our experience, landlords use a Section 21 in certain cases where it would be difficult to evict under Section 8, for example, if a tenant is displaying anti-social behaviour, which is often difficult to prove under the current Section 8 notice.

DWP complaints system is not working!

Reply to the comment left by Mick Roberts at 24/01/2019 - 06:45
Dear Mick,

Thank you for your comments.
I can not emphasis enough that all landlords need to complain when they experience flaws in the UC system, so that the needed changes can be implemented.
We together with RLA and Bill Irvine have brought many issues to DWPs attention and have had some good results, however there still needs to be some improvements.
Mick is an example of a proactive landlord however some landlords do not have the time and patience to complain hence why there are organisations like us that are happy to see the long winded process through.... Read More

Landlords come together about Universal Credit

Reply to the comment left by Colin Brammeld at 18/12/2018 - 14:02
Dear Colin,
I agree with you the only way that legislation will change is if landlords complain and notify DWP on the issues that they are having.
Please feel free to contact me to discuss any of the issues faced so that I can put forward to DWP.... Read More
