Reacting to news that the Renters (Reform) Bill will return to Parliament, Morgan Vine, Head of Policy and Influencing at Independent Age said: 

“We’re pleased that the desperately needed Renters (Reform) Bill will return to Parliament after months of delay. This Bill has the potential to deliver some of the protections older private renters desperately need. But it does not go far enough. 

“Older renters we speak to tell us that they live in a state of constant anxiety at the thought of being made homeless due to a no-fault eviction. This is no way to live and cannot continue.

“We must urgently see reforms which better protect financially insecure older renters, including abolishing Section 21, so that older tenants can have some peace of mind that they won’t be evicted from their home unfairly. People renting in later life do not have time to waste, they need reform now.”
