Under the UK Government’s proposals, landlords will have to provide a concrete, evidenced reason already specified in law for bringing tenancies to an end.
To ensure landlords have confidence the Government will allow them to be able to end tenancies where they have legitimate reason to do so. To this end, Ministers at Westminster will amend the Section 8 eviction process, so property owners are able to regain their home should they wish to sell it or move into it.
The Government will also expedite Court processes, so landlords are able to swiftly and smoothly regain their property.
Ministers will work with other types of housing providers outside of the private rented sector who use these powers and use the consultation to make sure the new system works effectively.
