No-fault evictions making hundreds of families homeless each week

The analysis reveals for the first time that 94% of this rise can be blamed on no-fault evictions, which have more than doubled since 2009.

This comes as the government launches a £100m strategy to end rough sleeping by 2027, after the numbers grew this decade by 168%.

Researchers found that for every 100 additional section 21 repossessions by bailiffs, 123 homelessness cases were accepted by councils (there were more homeless cases than evictions because councils are sometimes able to offer families temporary accommodation before they are formally evicted).
