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.

 

 

"I simply can’t fault Living Property. They clearly know their market and are friendly and professional. Paula and Kim were interested in really finding the right tenants for me, and my tenants were also keen to rent through them. Relationships matter when you are finding your next home, or tenant for your property - I believe that Living Property genuinely care about getting it right, and it shows."
Nikki Holland (Landlord)
