unstar this property answer text <p>We know that security of tenure is a concern for many in the private rented sector. That is why we have announced that the government will end so-called ‘no fault’ evictions by abolishing Section 21 of the Housing Act 1988. The government will shortly launch a new consultation on proposals to remove the ability of landlords to use ‘no fault’ evictions under Section 21 of the Housing Act 1988.</p><p>The government’s proposed measures will provide greater certainty for tenants and make the housing market fit for the 21st century. This will provide support to all tenants, including older renters, giving them the security and stability they need to make a place truly feel like home without the fear of being evicted at a moments’ notice.</p><p> </p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The proposed funding model for short-term supported housing changes the source of funding from welfare benefits to a local grant fund. In housing benefit, the payment is, in practice, normally made direct to the landlord for those living in supported housing, and this is exactly the same in the proposed funding model for short-term supported housing. In either case the individual is responsible for paying any ineligible service charges and incidental costs.</p> more like this

We have also brought together a panel of external experts through the Rough Sleeping Advisory Panel, who will be working closely with the Taskforce in developing the strategy to achieve our manifesto commitments.</p><p>The Government has already taken important steps to prevent and reduce homelessness and rough sleeping. This includes, allocating over £1 billion in funding through to 2020 and taking forward the most ambitious legislative reform in this area in decades, the Homelessness Reduction Act, which will mean people will get the help they need sooner.</p>
