Huge change for renters to be announced TOMORROW in major shake-up of tenant's rights
RENTERS will finally be given rights against shameless landlords chucking them out for no reason.
The long-awaited protections against "no fault" evictions are expected to appear in tomorrow's Queen's Speech.
Currently landlords can send their tenants packing with eight weeks notice without any explanation.
Boris Johnson vowed in 2019 to abolish the section 21 orders that leave vulnerable renters in the lurch.
The Conservative manifesto pledged "private landlords will no longer be able to evict tenants from their homes at short notice and without a good reason".
If included in tomorrow's Queen's Speech then no-fault evictions would likely be scrapped in the coming year.
