In focus: proposed abolition of S21 no-fault eviction notice

In focus: proposed abolition of S21 no-fault eviction notice

Many landlords never serve an eviction notice because the vast majority of tenancies end at the request of the tenant. If needed, most use the Section 21 ‘no-fault’ eviction process under the Housing Act 1988.

In April 2019, the Government announced its intention to abolish Section 21. The intention is that landlords should serve notice using the Section 8 process instead.

We look at what this means and ask landlords what changes they would like to see to the Section 8 process to make sure it works effectively.

Difference between a S21 and S8 notice process

The Government is launching a consultation this summer to gather views on how to make the Section 8 process work effectively. Make sure you have your say!
