I'm hearing that there are plans to abolish no fault (Section 21) notice for all tenancies....is this correct.  Is anyone aware of these changes and timescale for this? 
How will I be able to get my property back to sell it if this is the case, I don't want to be forced to sell it tenanted.

What happens at the end of a tenancy? Is there no notice from a landlord other than the Section 8?

I have been looking at this today on Gov.uk.

It still references S.21 but refers to a form, there are also links with more detailed information about repossession which I have not had time to read as yet.  Seems to me from the goverment website you can use either S.21 or S.8 or both!  Needs careful reading and following of the one that seems to most apply to your situaiton.  Time consuming but its clear you need to get it right, take your time and read as much as possible.

@TonyHSFC, you are talking about the existing procedure.

The original poster is referring to the government's plans to abolish Section 21 of the Housing Act 1988 under the Renters' Reform Bill.

The details of the plans have not been revealed yet but it is anticipated that with Section 21 gone, there will be strengthening of the grounds for repossession under Section 8.

The White Paper is expected to be published sometime in 2022 but could be delayed again. It's then a long journey from the White Paper to legislation being enacted.

Nobody knows exactly what the new Act will say, which is why I responded as I did to the OP's panicky: "How will I be able to get my property back to sell it if this is the case, I don't want to be forced to sell it tenanted".
