Welsh government to get rid of section 21 eviction

Recommended Posts

Nice. Once again Scotland shows rUK what domestic politics looks like when politicians show some kind of regard for the living standards of the 99%. England is embarrassingly badly governed.

"Only 11% of tenancies are ended by the landlord and over three quarters of those are because of high rent arrears"

I'd love to know how they arrived at this statistic? 

We have been subject to section 21 in our last 3 rentals. Also, this doesn't include tenants that decide to move because repairs are not made, rents are raised to ludicrous levels or tenants are passively harassed with unnecessary inspections.

Ending Section 21 would be the best thing to happen for tenants and perhaps the wider  housing market. Those that become "accident landlords" would have to think far harder about it if they could only evict tenants at fault.

Again, banks didnt grasp risk of LL lending.

They didnt even start to think of tge risk of massive LL mortages.

As soon as AST goes, banks are going to have to get rud if their btl mortgage books.

If only they stock to a 10 year repayment loan at commercial rates.

Brilliant news, good for Wales.

We too have been subject to section 21 when we complained about the black mould in a bedroom, it even damaged some of our clothing.

My mother was also subject to it twice and she was in her 80's!

Yes me too.

Neither ours, nor my mother's had anything to do with rent arrears (nor had the other peoples' that I know of, who have received them).

Interesting - we're tenants & landlords so very much have skin in the game.

What happens when the rent needs to go up? It would clearly be ridiculous if a tenant could just sit tight & pay the original rent as inflation relentlessly eats it away to naff all.
