It could leave landlords vulnerable to tenants who may abuse their home, leaving them with less power to regain possession of their property and making this process longer. Without an updated alternative provision to support landlords to protect their property, it could deter them from offering their property on the rental market. This could contribute to further demand for rental property, but with a reducing supply; driving rental asking prices to increase. To address this, the Government has proposed to strengthen Section 8 of the Act, which allows eviction due to the tenancy agreement being broken. This would ensure that the landlords needs are also protected with effective channels for them to use in the event of undesirable circumstances.
The Policy Director for the Residential Landlords Associations explained that it is crucial to also reform the way repossessions take place to avoid a rental crisis. A new system is required for landlords as well as tenants so that it is fair market for all. There must continue to be a lawful procedure to protect landlords in legitimate circumstances such as anti -social behavior, and tenant rent arrears.
