Rental Reform White Paper ‘may be pushed back until October’

Landlord Action supremo Paul Shamplina says he anticipates the long-awaited Rental Reform White Paper may now be delayed further, possibly until October.

In a video interview with Angels Media, Shamplina - who is the founder of Landlord Action, star of TV eviction programmes, and commercial officer at the Hamilton Fraser industry supplier - gives chapter and verse on what he believes will be contained in the White Paper once it is released.

He also gives a likely timetable of how long it will take the government to enact the expected changes such as abolishing Section 21 eviction powers for landlords, while then strengthening Section 8 powers to give landlords some comfort. 


But those are just two of the many ingredients expected in the White Paper. Shamplina, who has been involved in discussions with government on how to regulate the industry, gives an informed insight into forthcoming changes.

In the interview with Angels’ Lee Dahill, Shamplina also discusses the growing momentum for rent controls in parts of the UK, and the much-debated topic of whether landlords should go it alone or use letting agents to manage their investments.

It’s a crisp nine minute video interview, exclusively for Landlord Today readers. The video is below.

    Nice video, as Paul said, the EPC change for most of us will be the decision which either means we stay or sell…. There is no debate for me, if it comes in my tenants are out and the properties are being sold.
