Changes in Eviction Notices

Fri 14 May 2021

The government has announced changes to tenancy notice periods in line with the phased easing of the pandemic restrictions. 

Whilst some notice periods are reducing, there are no plans to see them back to pre-pandemic levels until October.

From June 1 notice periods in England that are currently six months, will reduce to at least four months.

Notice periods for the most serious cases will remain lower:

- anti-social behaviour (immediate to 4 weeks’ notice);

- domestic abuse in the social sector (2 to 4 weeks’ notice);

- false statement (2 to 4 weeks’ notice);

- over 4 months’ accumulated rent arrears (4 weeks’ notice);

- breach of immigration rules ‘Right to Rent’ (2 weeks’ notice);

- death of a tenant (2 months’ notice)

Notice periods for cases where there is four or more months’ of unpaid rent, will reduce to two months’ notice from 1 August. 

This is to support both landlords and tenants and responds to the greater difference between COVID and pre COVID notice periods for rent arrears.

The current ban on bailiff-enforced evictions, introduced as an emergency measure during lockdown, will end on May 31.

 

 

"We have just moved out of a property managed by Living Property after a 3 year tenancy, the service the guys provided has been fantastic from the moment we first contacted them. Everyone at the office has always been extremely helpful with every aspect of our tenancy and always made sure any problems we had were sorted out swiftly making the whole process stress free and easy. I would definitely recommend renting with Living Property to anyone and they have been an absolute pleasure to deal with. "
