The Government remains committed to building back fairer and delivering a better deal for renters. We will publish a White Paper which sets out a package of reforms to create a fairer private rented sector. This will include further detail on repealing Section 21 of the Housing Act 1988, and on targeted enforcement measures that drive out criminal landlords.

We are undertaking robust and structured stakeholder engagement, working closely with the sector to inform our plans, while also learning from impact of the pandemic on the sector. We will bring forward legislation in due course, following the publication of the White Paper.
