I’m not very experienced at letting, and I’ve been renovating my flat for the last few months, prior to letting it. However, I heard recently that the government is proposing to change the law, such that it will be impossible to remove a tenant who doesn’t want to leave at the end of their tenancy contract, unless they seriously violate the rules.
If this is true, someone could simply take over your property for life, so if you wanted to sell your property, or move in yourself, you wouldn’t be able to.
Is this correct, or am I mistaken? Do landlords take any precautions against this happening? Do you know when this law is likely to be enacted?
