UK extends ban on evicting tenants for another four weeks

Fri, 21st Aug 2020 15:32

LONDON, Aug 21 (Reuters) - The British government said on
Friday it would extend a ban on evicting tenants from social or
private rented accommodation for another four weeks due to
COVID-19 pandemic.

The moratorium on evictions, which has been in place for
five months, had been due to expire on Sunday.

The government also said there will be a six-month notice
period for evicting tenants, meaning renters cannot be evicted
until March next year.

The ban on evictions was introduced to give greater
protection to millions of renters who may be experiencing
financial difficulties as a result of the coronavirus crisis.

"I know this year has been challenging and all of us are
still living with the effects of COVID-19. That is why today I
am announcing a further 4 week ban on evictions," housing
minister Robert Jenrick said.
