Does the rla need updating
Ground floor was rented out on an assured tenancy with sitting tenant. Do I have the right by serving notice force them to move out during the renovation work?
I am going to live on the second and third floor flat. I offered that I could provide them an alternative accommodation. But they said they did not want to move, because they have lived there for 20 years.
This is to prevent landlords or agents trying to offset the ban on fees by artificially increasing the rent for the initial period to make up the costs.
While this is yet to come into force, and draft legislation is always subject to change, it is very likely to come into force in much the same format so landlords and agents should start considering the impact on their business now.
