Renters' Reform White Paper, Changes to Eviction Notice Period and more

In a bid to 'get a better deal for renters', the Government is committed to a series of reforms in the private rented sector and will publish a white paper this autumn detailing these changes. What can agents and landlords expect this year?

In this webinar, industry-leading property lawyer David Smith dissected the Queen's Speech and shared his expert opinion on what the reform package might entail. Besides the renters' reform white paper, the presenter also discussed hot topics including recent and upcoming changes to eviction proceedings and the rules around right to rent checks.
