Post Truss, we have been told once more that the Renters Reform Bill will be forthcoming before too long, and with it the end of section 21 as a way of getting possession for landlords.
Now, like a distant rumble of thunder heralding the oncoming storm, DLUHC have started a consultation – “Technical consultation on consequential changes to the homelessness legislation“.
This is concerned with the amendments to homelessness legislation that will be required by the end of section 21. (There will be a fair amount of consequential amendments needed to other legislation too – deposits rules, tenant fees etc.)
The consultation is open until 25 January 2023, so clearly being done in something of a rush…
