Eviction ban: regulations Eviction ban: regulations and guidance 10/09/2020 Labelled as Legislation

We previously advised our member councils that the social and private rented tenants affected by coronavirus will continue to be protected, after Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick announced that the Government would extend the ban on evictions for another four weeks.


Following the Housing Secretary's announcement that the eviction ban was to be extended for a further month with tenants thereafter to be given 6-month notice period, the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has written to local authorities on 7 September to confirm the new regulations under the Coronavirus Act 2020 (residential tenancies: protection from eviction) (amendment) (England) Regulations 2020 (SI 2020/914).


The COVID-19 renter's guidance for landlords, tenants and local authorities has also been updated to reflect the new regulations.


Following the Housing Secretary's announcement of the extension of the eviction ban and the letter to local authorities on 7 September the Housing Ministry has issued a further press release on Thursday 10 September confirming that any Eviction Orders granted will not be enforced during any local lockdowns and that there will be a "truce" on enforcement of Eviction Orders by bailiffs over the Christmas period.
