The Renters’ Reform Bill White Paper outlining legislation to abolish Section 21 looks to have been pushed back yet again.
Until recently, Housing Minister Eddie Hughes had been promising to publish the paper ‘this Spring’, but when answering a parliamentary question about the expected timings, he gave no firm date.
“We are absolutely committed to delivering a better deal for renters and will be bringing forward a Renters Reform Bill in this parliamentary session,” said Hughes. “We will publish a White Paper shortly that will set out more detail on our reform proposals.”
As the parliamentary session started last month, the Bill might not get debated now until May 2023 or at the earliest this September.
