Wed 17 May 2023 The Renters (Reform) Bill and What it Means For You

Today, the government published its Renters (Reform) Bill which is a proposed new law arguably constituting the largest overhaul of the private rental sector in England since the 1980s.

Patrick Ansell, Partner in our Property Litigation department discusses the major points to be aware of from the official release.

As confirmed by the release, under the proposals, landlords will no longer be able to terminate a tenancy agreement without providing a justification, as the current mechanism for 'no fault' evictions (Section 21) is due to be abolished.

Other noteworthy measures in the bill include:

From what is currently known about the proposed new legislation it is clearly a much more favourable development for tenants than it is for landlords. Taking this into account it seems inevitable that some landlords will seek to evict their tenants before the new law bites and/or it may persuade them to leave the private rental sector altogether.


If you have any concerns about the proposed new law and how it will affect your business, or you require general assistance or advice about a contentious landlord and tenant matter then please contact Patrick Ansell directly by email by clicking the ‘contact us’ button or call Taylor Rose MW on 020 3540 4444.  For more information about our Property Litigation Department, please click here.
