Legislation will be introduced to "strengthen the rights of tenants"
Legislation aimed at strengthening the rights of tenants, including repealing Section 21 of the 1988 Housing Act, was reconfirmed in the speech.
Abolishing Section 21 will end “no-fault evictions” in England. Landlords must therefore provide tenants with a reason for ending their tenancy, such as a break in the contract or the desire to sell the property.
Section 8 will likely be amended and strengthened to support landlords who want to recover their properties, for example, when they wish to sell or move into the property themselves, or if their tenants fall behind on rent.
