The Government has announced its plans to abolish the Section 21 eviction process otherwise known as the ‘no fault eviction’. This poses the obvious question of whether in fact, Housing law is moving towards a more tenant friendly approach and whether this will be the potential solution for the leading cause of homelessness in England.
All tenants have a right to due process. As such, the law requires that certain criteria be met in order for a landlord to legally evict a tenant from their property. These criteria vary depending on the type of tenancy a resident holds, and failure to comply with any may be grounds to resist an eviction.
Harassment by a landlord may take various forms – it may involve a landlord interfering with a tenant/occupiers use of the property or engaging in intimidating or violent behaviour. Harassment may often lead to, or occur along with illegal eviction.A tenant’s right against a landlord engaging in harassing behaviour will depend partly on the nature of the tenancy or licence held at the property. The following gives an overview of common forms of harassment.
Many local authorities, especially within London, fall foul of the 6-week bed and breakfast (‘B&B’) rule. As per the Homelessness (Suitability of Accommodation) Order 2003 accommodation has either a shared toilet, shared personal washing facilities, or shared cooking facilities it will be considered to be a B&B. It is unlawful for councils to accommodate families (including single pregnant women) in temporary accommodation that is a privately-owned B&B for more than 6 weeks.
