Forthcoming Changes to Residential Tenancies

Landlords should be aware of government proposals to alter the rights of residential tenants. In particular, the tenant position on rent increases and evictions is to be strengthened. It is also proposed that tenants' requests to keep pets cannot be unreasonably rejected. 

The proposed changes will mean abolition of the current s21 eviction Notice. Landlords will instead only be able to end a tenancy if they wish to sell the property, live in it themselves or if the tenant is in persistent rent arrears. Rent increases will be limited to one a year, capped and will require two month notice. 

Although the legislation has no date for coming into effect, it will have significant impacts on the private rental sector when it does. Graves Jenkins provides residential property valuation advice and building surveys. Please contact us for more information.
