Plan to Ban ‘No Fault’ Evictions Shelved ‘For Now…’

Plan to Ban ‘No Fault’ Evictions Shelved ‘For Now…’

Court Enforcement Specialists are committed to providing the very best support to landlords during these uncertain times, and they certainly are uncertain…

The Secretary of State for levelling up, housing and communities, Michael Gove’s recent announcement that the proposed ban on ‘no fault’ evictions is to be shelved ‘indefinitely’, whilst the legal system sorts itself out, has left many landlords unsure as to what the future holds.

No change there then…

With the latest discussion surrounding the no-fault evictions ban, we understand the challenges faced by landlords and are dedicated to assisting them however we can. Whatever happens, Court Enforcement Specialists stand firmly alongside our landlord clients, offering support and a commitment to keeping them informed about the latest developments.

Recent developments within the UK legal sphere have led to the pausing of the planned ban on no-fault evictions. This ban was supposed to be about enhancing tenant protection, but it posed a significant challenge for landlords who have traditionally relied on this kind of eviction to regain possession of their properties when necessary.

For this reason, you might expect landlords to have been in favour of the ban being shelved, but it still leaves uncertainty hanging over landlords and tenants alike, at a time when reassurance is needed for all parties in light of the ongoing Cost of Living crisis.

The proposed Bill wasn’t just about ‘no fault’ evictions though, and there were reforms which benefited both sides of the renting agreement. Alongside the plan to ban no fault evictions were plans that would make it easier for landlords to repossess their properties if tenants displayed anti-social behaviour or failed to pay rent again and again, something that would have been unanimously popular with landlords.

It would also have prevented landlords exercising blanket bans on renting to families or people claiming benefits, and make it much easier for tenants to share their homes with pets, changes which would have been universally popular with tenants.

As with everything, the devil is in the detail and you have to look beyond the headlines to truly understand the impact that this apparent U-turn could now have on all kinds of people from all walks of life.
