So what happens if no fault evictions are stopped.

No-fault evictions to be axed under new government proposals.

I realise itís statement is full of ďmaybe, if, could, would, should,Ē but Iíd put nothing passed this government, seeing as social housing is collapsing around them, letís leave the Landlord in a no way out situation.

I listened to someone from Shelter on the radio this morning.She made some fair points about good tenants having to lose their security through no fault of their own.What was not made clear was that s21 is the only fairly certain way a landlord can get rid of  nightmare tenants. They will have to make big changes to remove the loopholes that tenants can use to evade eviction by other means. Shelter started out with laudable aims to help homeless people get on their feet again,but it now seems to give support  and guidance to tenants who want to play the system.

If itís a nightmare tenant then a S8 would be more appropriate, but then again if theyíre just a pain & are up to date with everything else you could have problems.

I'm not sure they could get rid of Section 21 altogether without effectively abolishing ASTs. If they did that I reckon there'd be a substantial drop in the supply of rental accommodation as a lot of smaller landlords sell up. I think it's more likely they'll go for a substantially increased S21 notice period - six or even twelve months - hopefully with a corresponding strengthening of S8.
