MLRC publishes information note on the new procedure for evictions from local authority housing

The new procedure for eviction from housing authority accommodation was brought into effect on 13 April 2015.  This procedure is provided in the Housing (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2014.  MLRC has published a summary of the new procedure. The new procedure is detailed and very technical in places.  The summary gives an overview of the key aspects of the new procedure – the tenancy warning, the review of the tenancy warning, the proceedings for possession.  It also notes the welcome changes in the new procedure and potential issues with it, in particular the glaring issue of the lack of legal aid available for tenants facing proceedings for possession.  For the summary, please click here
