This article in the Independent about the government shelving its plan to abolish no-fault evictions looks to be good news for landlords: Boris Johnson has been accused of betraying private renters after shelving Theresa May’s promise to end the misery of ‘no-fault evictions’.Mr Johnson has said nothing about the issue since succeeding her and the crackdown was fiercely opposed by landlords – before being left out of a Queen’s Speech with no fewer than 26 bills.http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/pol...55126.html.
More coverage of this topic:Questions have been raised concerning the government’s housing plans after measures promised under Theresa May were omitted from the Queen’s Speech yesterday.Prime minister Boris Johnson has come in for criticism from Shelter, Generation Rent and Labour for leaving out any mention of a bill to abolish so-called ‘no fault’ evictions.
His predecessor revealed plans in April to end the practice by scrapping Section 21 of the Housing Act 1988.
The Independent also pointed out the Queen’s Speech was quiet on policies announced under Ms May to help leaseholders.

I'm sure there will be a 'renewed commitment' to from all parties when the ballot boxes get dusted off for the next general election...
Can't see us getting let off that easily over such a major policy....

From twitter this morning:
This matter and a couple of other pathetic items were seen as Treason May's "legacy" and supporting that is the last thing that the Tories want to do, she was a disaster. I don't believe this government has the stomach for pressing on with this S.21 abolition nonsense.The NRLA really do need to get their act together and start briefing the press on this matter, we all know that "no fault eviction" is a misnomer as there is always fault (usually rent arrears) and S.21 is just faster than S.8.I'm carrying out this process at present (first time in 10 years) with both S.8 and S.21, I've already been told that the S.8 part won't see the inside of Court room until June 2020, if I'm lucky, so S.21 it is!!
I'm pressing on with both courses, hopefully the bloke will go when the S.21 expires unless the lowlife at the Local Council give him the usual unlawful advice of "staying until the bailiffs turn up", by which time his rent arrears will be the wrong side of 10 grand, so I'll press on with the S.8 as well and get a CCJ registered against him so he can't do this to another landlord.
I'm assuming you've served two S.21's, one in May and another on or around 8th September, if not your May S.21 will be invalid because you accepted a payment plan (even though he's breached it) and would have to serve a fresh S.21.I would just let the S.21 take its course and deal with the S.8 later if it's worth pursuing. You're offer for him to "just go" is more than generous and if he turns this down I would also go ahead with the S.8 because you're dealing with a p***taker, but being an EU citizen who's to say he won't clear off back to Hungary and out of our courts jurisdiction.
