Section 21: Why it’s crucial landlords have their say in our survey

Written by Victoria Barker

Last month the Government announced its intention to consult on plans to abolish Section 21.

Ahead of the Government consultation, the RLA launched a major survey, giving landlords the opportunity to help shape their rights to repossess properties.

So far, the survey has had over 4,500 responses. Last week , RLA Policy Director David Smith and Vice Chair Douglas Haig represented landlords during high level talks at Number 10, on the Government’s proposed Section 21 changes.

In this video, RLA policy director David Smith explains what we know so far, and why it is so important that all landlords take the survey.

  • I need to know I can regain my property in line with a freely entered into contract. Whilst large scale landlords may have some flexibility there needs to be an exemption for landlords with less than say 4 properties. In other areas there are frequently exceptions for very small businesses. Alternatively I may need to sell my one rental property as I do not need the worry which would be a shame as my tenants are lovely.
