House of Commons library briefing -

This paper considers how English local authorities deal with private tenants who have been served with a section 21 notice and are about to become homeless. It is not unusual for tenants in this position to be told to remain in situ until a court order/bailiff’s warrant is obtained. The paper considers changes introduced by the Homelessness Reduction Act 2017 with effect from 3 April 2018.
