No-fault evictions to be banned in ‘once-in-a-generation’ reforms

Home Affairs Correspondent

After years of promising to legislate to protect renters, the UK government has finally introduced a bill that will allow tenants in England to challenge poor landlords without losing their homes.

The Renters’ Reform Bill will not only end no-fault evictions, it will end bans by landlords on tenants who claim benefits.

Renters will also be given a legal right to keep pets, but landlords will get greater powers to evict anti-social tenants.
