Renters Reform Bill – December 2023 Update

  • Renters Reform Bill – December 2023 Update

There has been various headline news from the Government regarding the Renters Reform Bill and after a protracted delay the second reading took place on Monday 23rd October. The house of commissions community finished the relation of the Bill on Tuesday 28th November and is now being sent to the report state and a third reading. As of now no date has yet been set for this reading.

 

There have been so many amendments so far and the Government have already confirmed that they are not looking to scrap the Section 21 notice for tenancies. This is at this moment in time. What they are going to do is try and ensure that the support system is digitalized so that there isn’t such a huge back log of work.

 

The delay means that it is unlikely that this will now receive Royal assent before Spring 2024. This could even potentially start say October 2024 or even April 2025.

 

It is extremely tight whether the Bill will receive Royal Assent before parliament is dissolved for the next general election. This is due to be held by the latest by the 28th January 2025. But, more than likely in 2024.

 

It is unlikely therefore that sufficient progress will take place on the Bill. Our view is it is more than likely not to go through before the next election. It will more than likely be reworded again by whichever party will come into force. Legislation is coming and we don’t have any doubt about it. However, unlikely within the next 18 months to 2 years.

Have been very accommodating and helpful when calling agents. They have been very helpful in being able to secure a house for students.

Harringtons have been incredibly helpful and supportive of us as new renters and they have been super efficient in getting all of the documents sent through and signed in such a short period of time. Thank you!

we chose this letting agents as they chose a good bills company that is much cheaper than other agents. When viewing houses the staff were very friendly and have been very helpful in answering our questions and making the process as easy as possible.

Although I have only been renting with Harringtons for a short period of time, I have had nothing but a positive experience. From viewing to admin updates. The admin team especially are very polite and quick to respond and I have no doubt that the rest of my tenancy will run smoothly. I would recommend to anyone considering renting in brighton.

Professional communication with tenant although entirely impersonal. There was a bigger disconnect in their communication with the landlord in most cases, which seemed to be either slow or non-existent (discovered after contacting the landlord directly).Property was full of spider webs on day 1 despite apparently being professionally cleaned. Took a day off of work to clean it on move out day, leaving it cleaner than when it received but still had to pay part of the deposit for professional cleaning.It has been a while since I have rented, but I'll avoid letting agencies completely now if this is anything close to the average renting experience.

Great professionalism/communciation from the start up until the end of my tenancy. Definitely set the standards for what agencies should be like. Highly recommend to those within Brighton.

I have rented with Harringtons Lettings before and have always found the agents to be quick, efficient, friendly and helpful. I loved their service so much I have chosen to rent with Harringtons again. Faultless 😊
