Evicted for No Reason - The Truth Behind Section 21 Notices

ceciliaw on Education - BBC One aired a Panorama documentary examining unfair treatment of tenants by landlords, with interviews with renters who had been evicted through what was described as “no-fault” evictions. But what are the rules behind Section 21?

The documentary, titled Evicted for no reason, looked at a number of people “whose lives had been plunged into chaos by their landlords” after they had been made the subject of Section 21 eviction notices and forced to move out of their private rented accommodation. While the programme also spoke to landlords, it portrayed a very unbalanced market where landlords could very easily and unfairly remove tenants from their properties.
