Suspension Of Evictions Extended

Date Published 08 June 2020

The government has extended the suspension of new evictions in England and Wales until 23rd August. The extension announced by the Housing Secretary takes the moratorium on evictions to a total of five months.

Where tenants have/are experiencing financial difficulties as a result of the pandemic, the government is clear that Landlords and Tenants should work together and exhaust all possible options such as flexible payment plans which take into account a tenant's individual circumstances to ensure cases only end up in court as an absolute last resort.
