Minister vows to end “revenge evictions”
Posted by Debbie Watson September 12, 2014
The DCLG have issued a press release unveiling the Communities Minister’s pledge to outlaw revenge evictions.
Communities Minister Stephen Williams said Sarah Teatherâ€™s Bill would help root out spiteful landlords and ensure hardworking tenants unafraid to ask for better housing standards.
The Bill will serve to outlaw landlords who, rather than meet their legal duty to keep their properties at a reasonable standard and remove health and safety hazards, instead evict tenants simply for asking for essential repairs to be made.
