So I read in the paper today that the government are going to overturn section 21 which allows landlords to evict tenants with short notice. That will no longer happen. In one way this is good because it means a more secure home for renters. However, I wonder if it will do anything to alleviate the housing crisis in the long run? I know that in my case I will not make my property available to rent while I am overseas...so that's one already off the market. How many more in similar circumstances to me will do the same?
