Protection for tenants ‘can’t come soon enough’

Housing charities including HHSE have welcomed yesterday’s announcement that the law is to be changed to protect private tenants who suddenly face homelessness when their landlord is repossessed. The government’s announcement has come after alarm from campaigners over the growing number of tenants, who through no fault of their own and often with little warning are evicted from their house. More than 100 MPs had signed an early day motion calling for changed to the law.
