The end of tolerated trespassers delayed a bit.

News just in – the government has announced that the date for the implementation of s.299 H&R Act 2008 – which brings in ‘replacement’ tenancies has been delayed from 6 April 2009, when we thought it was going to happen, to ‘early May’. This is apparently so that the Order on successor landlords can be scrutinised by Parliament and come into force at the same time. More detail on the successor landlords order and implementation dates to follow as and when.

      Kay, we just don’t know. It should be soon, but no date has been set.

      Keep an eye on this blog. We will have the date posted the very instant we know it.
