The NLA is opposed to the abolition of Section 21
the below article is quoted from the NLA website https://landlords.org.uk/support-advice/april-2019-changes-to-section-21 (7th May 2019 09.35am)
Following the Government announcement about planned changes to the eviction process made on the 15th April 2019, The National Landlords Association (NLA) have created the following guide to help landlords understand changes to the eviction process, how the changes will affect future eviction and when the changes will come into effect.
The NLA is opposed to the abolition of Section 21.
To highlight the short-sightedness of this policy to Government, we’re launching a postcard campaign to tell the Prime Minister directly the impact this will have on the market.
We are asking you to complete and return your postcard to us, explaining why you agree that Section 21 should not be abolished. We will hand deliver the postcards to Number 10, as a physical indication of the weight of opposition to this announcement.
Postcards are being shared via UK Landlord, membership communications, and at NLA meetings and events.
You can also sign up online here.

The RLA are also looking for feedback so they can report back to government

Our survey collecting landlords' views in response to recent government announcements on Section 21 reforms is still live. Almost 5,000 landlords have given their views so why not join them?
To those who have already completed our Section 21 consultation survey, "Thank you".
If you haven't, there's still time - this consultation may well be the largest landlord consultation exercise in our history, so please don't miss out.
A quick reminder - on 15 April the Government announced its intention to scrap the Section 21 possession process - so-called "no-fault" evictions.
It outlined plans to consult on:
- Putting an end to what the Government call ‘no-fault’ evictions by repealing Section 21 of the Housing Act 1988.
- Strengthening the Section 8 possession process, so property owners are able to regain their home should they wish to sell it or move into it.
- Building a consensus on a package of reforms to improve security for tenants while providing landlords with the confidence that they have the tools they need.
We have put together a short survey - which we urge you to complete. You can link to the survey here.
This will be one of the biggest changes in private renting for a generation - it is vital your experience and opinions help shape these reforms.
Thank you for your continued support and valued input.
