Surbhi Vedhara, Managing Partner at Sweeney Miller Law, is featured in the latest edition of Northern Insight magazine discussing the Renters’ (Reform) Bill that was recently introduced to Parliament.


In the article, Surbhi introduces the new Bill which, according to the Government, aims to empower renters to challenge poor landlords and conditions, and simplify the process for landlords to recover their properties if and when necessary. The proposed changes include:

  • Abolishing ‘no fault’ evictions
  • Introducing periodic tenancies and notice periods
  • Establishing an Ombudsman service and property portal
  • Allowing pets in lets

Commenting on the Bill, Surbhi Vedhara, Managing Partner at Sweeney Miller Law said: “The Bill brings forward some interesting considerations for both tenants and landlords in the private rented sector, and it is great to see the Government championing ‘good landlords’. The devil is in the detail and we await further details of what the changes will mean in practise. We hope to see the introduction of reforms that balance the interests of both landlords and tenants.”
