Outbreak of commonsense
The Conservatives are calling for more protection for tenants who face being evicted from their home with little notice if it is repossessed. Lenders are required to give tenants just 14 days' notice that their property might be repossessed. The Tories say this period should be extended and tenants should be more clearly informed about their situation. Ministers said tenants would soon be given seven weeks' notice and insisted they should be treated fairly.
