The Government, on 17 December 2013, approved priority drafting of a Housing (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill that will provide, among other things, for a revised procedure to replace section 62 of the Housing Act 1966, enabling housing authorities to recover possession of their dwellings from households in serious breach of their tenancy agreements, including engaging in anti-social behaviour. The Bill will be enacted as quickly as possible and it is anticipated that this will be by summer 2014.
