Housing Rights response to Department for Communities consultation on notice to quit

We have responded to the Department for Communities consultation on notice to quit.

The Private Tenancies Bill extends the notice to quit period from 28 days to 8 weeks, for tenancies lasting longer than 12 months. The 12-week notice period for tenancies of more than 10 years will stay the same. The DfC’s consultation is to investigate whether 8 weeks is enough time for a tenant to find a suitable home.

Read our response.
