On 11 May 2021, the Opening of Parliament takes place and many pundits are expecting the government to confirm that the Renters Reform Bill will be included in the next session of parliament.

The Bill removes Section 21 but will apparently increase Section 8 powers in return.

The government is also expected to outline their ideas on ‘lifetime rental passports’ which will allow deposits to be shifted from one property to another, making it easier for renters to move home.

The government has already confirmed it will introduce changes to the building safety regulatory regime.
