The Renters Reform Bill

The long-awaited Renters Reform Bill, which contains the government’s proposed changes to the Private Rented Sector, had its first reading in parliament last week.

Despite some of the headlines you may have read, none of these proposals are currently law and as such have no immediate impact on new or existing tenancies.

Here is a short summary of the Bill, and we’ll be sure to keep you informed of any further developments.
