How Does the Legislation Affect Landlords? The new legislation comes into effect in October 2015. From October onwards, landlords won’t be able to serve a valid Section 21 notice on tenants for a minimum of six months if they have complained about repairs needed or anything else property related.
The Central Landowners’ Association says:
“This is the definition of bad policy making. It imposes a poorly designed, burdensome new regulation as part of a law that is supposed to be about “deregulation”. By forcing through this law, Ministers risk setting back significantly the opportunity for putting in place measures that will tackle the minority of bad landlords that we agree should be targeted with regulation.”
