Every new landlord and tenant should know the key new rules about renting.

The government has unveiled a series of proposed reforms in the private rental sector in England, including a ban on so-called “no-fault” evictions and making it easier for tenants to keep pets.

In new White paper Private Rent – Published today (June 16) – A number of improvements have been made. The government says the reforms mark a “general shift” and will “balance” rights between landlords and tenants.

The measures included in the White Paper on Leveling Up, Housing and Communities’ Fairr Private Rented Sector include the proposed ban on eviction without section 21. Tenant groups have long campaigned for a ban on these evictions.

Currently, eviction allows homeowners to terminate tenancy without giving a reason. Government figures show that in 2019 and 2020, more than a fifth of private tenants did not voluntarily relinquish their tenancy – eight percent were asked by landlords to leave.

“Many private tenants are at the mercy of unscrupulous landowners who fail to repair their homes and allow families to live in damp, unsafe and cold properties,” said Leveling. No, eviction orders keep hanging, “Leveling said. Up and Housing Secretary Michael Gove.

Can you keep pets in rented houses?

The White Paper also includes a plan to make it easier for tenants to keep pets in the private rental sector. It proposes to give tenants the right to request a pet, which private owners should “consider and not unreasonably refuse”.

The White Paper also calls for the establishment of a new private tenant ombudsman, which will provide a quick, low-cost way to resolve disputes between tenants and landlords without having to go to court. Big.

When you can take the landlord to court.

Tenants will have the right to take the landlord to court to pay rent if their home is not of adequate quality. The government estimates that only more than a fifth of England’s 11 million private tenants live in homes that do not meet basic standards.

The arbitrary rent revision clauses will also be stopped, the increase in rent will be limited. The notice of rent increase will be doubled, tenants will be given new rights to challenge the unjustified increase.

Rents are currently rising at their fastest pace in five years. The Department for Leveling Up, Housing and Communities states that private ratings “provide millions of tenants with the most expensive, least secure, and lowest quality housing.”

No more restrictions on children and no more ‘No DSS’ ads

Landlords and agents will be prevented from imposing a complete ban on renting out families with children, or beneficiaries. This will eliminate “no DSS” ads that have been running on private rent for decades.

The government plans to give councils additional powers to deal with criminal landlords, along with enforcement pilots and higher fines for serious crimes.

However, the White Paper proposes to make it easier for “responsible landlords” to evict “anti-social tenants” and to enable them to sell rental properties “when they need them”. A new “property portal” will provide landlords, tenants and councilors with information about their rights and responsibilities.

The White Paper will form the basis of the Tenants’ Reform Bill, first announced by Theresa May in April 2019, but has yet to be tabled in Parliament. The next bill was included in the Queen’s speech last month.
