Important Changes to Notices and Evictions You Need to be Aware of

Emily Utratny Jun 2, 2021, 11:32 AM

Coronavirus changed the rules for evicting a tenant in England.

The current ban on bailiff-enforced evictions, introduced as an emergency measure during lockdown, ended on 31 May. Bailiffs have been asked not to carry out an eviction if anyone living in the property has COVID-19 symptoms or is self-isolating. 

Regarding notice periods, this was previously extended to 6 months as an emergency measure during the pandemic. From the 1st June these will be set at 4 months (for most tenancies). This is planned to end 30th September, and then notice periods will revert back to pre-covid levels.
