Call for law change in landlords’ favour
Meanwhile, a campaign has been launched for Parliament to change the law to speed up the eviction process and give landlords more right of access to their own properties.
It is being spearheaded by Landlord Action and is backed by the Residential Landlords’ Association.
Paul Shamplina, of Landlord Action, says: “We are seeking changes to the law in order to speed up the eviction process. This is particularly important when there is a clear case of non-payment of rent or antisocial behaviour. We are also seeking changes to improve a landlord’s rights of access to their own property.”
