The RLA has conducted its most wide ranging landlord research yet concerning government announced plans to ban Section 21 so called ‘no fault’ evictions.

The following reasons were given by landlords for using section 21:
84% of landlords said they would be ‘more selective’ selecting tenants if the government bans Section 21, because of the fear of difficulties and time involved in gaining possession when something goes wrong. Therefore, this would marginalise further tenants that need the most help such as DSS or any prospective tenant who cannot pass a reference/credit check and does not have a guarantor.
