Retaliatory Eviction

Postby Nick » Tue Sep 16, 2014 6:50 pm

A Bill that would outlaw so-called retaliatory evictions, backed by the Government, is to have its second reading in Parliament on November 28. The Landlord would no longer be able to serve a S21 notice within 6 months of ‘a relevant complaint.’ (notification in writing of any defect which would give rise to the repairing duty under s.11 of the LTA 1985; or that the premises are prejudicial to health (except where that prejudice is a result of tenant neglect); or that a Cat 1 or Cat 2 hazard exists at the premises (for which a local authority environmental health officer’s certificate would suffice).
