Another nail in the coffin of Buy To Let

BBC News: No-fault evictions to be banned in England

Section 21 notices allow landlords to evict renters without a reason at the end of their fixed-term tenancy. The National Landlords Association said the move would create "chaos" and make fixed-term contracts "meaningless".
