Housing Act 1988 - Section 21

Thursday 5 July 2018, all day

Motion detail

“This Assembly welcomes the campaign to end Section 21 – the clause of the Housing Act 1988 that allows private landlords to evict tenants without reason.

 

We acknowledge that the threat of a no-fault eviction causes insecurity and stress for Londoners who rent privately and can discourage tenants from complaining about substandard housing.

 

We welcome the action taken by the Scottish government to restrict no-fault evictions.

 

We urge the Mayor to state his backing for the campaign to abolish Section 21 of the Housing Act 1988 and to lobby government for this change in the law.”
