On 11th July 2019 the Welsh Government opened its consultation on reforming possession in Wales. They plan to prevent landlords from repossessing their property under the upcoming Section 21 equivalent for 12 months from the date the tenant moves in.
These proposals will only take effect when the Renting Homes (Wales) Act 2016 comes into force. In that a Section 21 notice will be replaced by a Section 173 notice. This is expected at the start of 2021.
For further information on this and to have your voice heard please see our campaign on possession reform in Wales.
