The Renters Reform Bill was included in the Queen’s speech and so therefore is bound in due course to come to pass.
But when is this going to happen and what is going to be in it when it does?
We speak to housing barrister Justin Bates, who knows a thing or two about legislation and the law, The discussion is wide ranging, looking at
- The old system under the Rent Act 1977 which most people have forgotten
- What the government’s attitude is to this legislation and whether it will take a wholesale overhaul or a ‘whack a mole’ approach,
- Whether the bill, when it is finally published will satisfy either party, and along the way consider
- Why landlords and tenants are both convinced that they are the hard done by ones in the landlord/tenant relationship
An interesting discussion which we hope you will enjoy.
