The Deregulation Act (“the Act”) became law on 26th March 2016 and introduced several changes as to how Landlords, and their agents, are able to secure possession of their property. The changes apply to any new Assured Shorthold Tenancy (“AST”) beginning on or after 1st October 2015, with it applying to all other pre-existing tenancies from 1st October 2018. The position before the Act, compared with the current position, is discussed below.
