Abolition of s21 Notice

The Rent Reform Bill continues its slow march toward being enacted, and at the moment this seems most likely to happen in October 2024. Once it is enacted it will bring with it sweeping reforms of the private rented sector, the most notorious of which is the abolition of s21 (or ‘no-fault’) notices for the landlords. On a broad-brush level this means that if your tenant is never at fault for anything, then you may never remove them, and they effectively have life-long tenancies.

If you were thinking of evicting your tenant anyway, or indeed now wish to evict them to avoid the upcoming changes, then chances are that you only have until October 2024 to use the no-fault notice. After that, assuming they are never at fault, your tenant will likely become a tenant for life.

Please feel free to contact me for assistance with any tenant evictions.
