Everything you need to know about ‘once in a generation’ renting shake-up

The Government’s long-awaited rental reforms will be brought to Parliament today – more than four years after the Tories promised to axe no-fault evictions.

The Renters’ Reform Bill has been described as a “once in a generation overhaul” and aims to help and protect millions of tenants in private rental homes across England from poor landlord practice.

The Bill needs to be passed through Parliament before it can become law and this frustratingly can be a lengthy process.

The Government has said it plans to introduce the new measures “at the earliest opportunity”.

Some measures of the Bill are to come in sooner, however, some are expected to take a lot longer.

The Bill includes a host of reforms and here, we explain what these major reforms mean for you.
