Tenants & Landlords – Covid-19 (CoronaVirus)

Following confirmation by the Prime Minister this afternoon that new legislation will be brought forward to protect private renters from eviction, the government has announced that new evictions for those in social or rented accommodation will be suspended for the duration of the crisis.

The new laws state that landlords will not be able to start proceedings to evict tenants for at least three months.

The government has also announced that landlords whose tenants are experiencing financial difficulties due to the outbreak will be able to take advantage of the recently declared three-month ‘mortgage holiday’.

Landlords and tenants are expected to work together on affordable repayment plans which will have to take into consideration individual circumstances.

The Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick said: “The government is clear – no renter who has lost income due to coronavirus will be forced out of their home, nor will any landlord face unmanageable debts.

“These are extraordinary times and renters and landlords alike are of course worried about paying their rent and mortgage. Which is why we are urgently introducing emergency legislation to protect tenants in social and private accommodation from an eviction process being started.

“These changes will protect all renters and private landlords ensuring everyone gets the support they need at this very difficult time.”
