The Government has implemented new legislation to protect tenants experiencing financial difficulties as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.
Welsh Government is keen to do more to address concerns about no fault eviction. Current legislation allows a landlord to seek possession of a property without a breach of contract providing the tenant with only two months’ notice.
The government waited until a minute before midnight to publish its revised guidance on Section 21 evictions and its updated How To Rent guide, both of which now reflect the new realities of the tenant fees ban.
Time taken to evict tenants increases by seven days to over 17 weeks. Official figures from Ministry of Justice put government's plans to ban Section 21 'no fault' evictions into disarray.
Legislation that will bring in a tenant fees ban in Wales has been given Royal Assent and will become law on 1st September.
