Rise in tenant evictions

There has been a ‘steep rise’ in the number of tenants evicted after landlords have defaulted on their mortgage, HHSE warned. Ministers have to ‘act quickly to give tenants far, far longer’ as some tenants can get just a few days’ notice to leave their homes. Around three million homes in England and Wales are rented from private landlords. The government is considering a major overhaul of the sector, although it has not yet said when it would happen.
