The government has announced that the eviction ban in England will be extended until the end of March 2021.
It now means that eviction notices which could have started again from the 22nd February 2021, will be delayed for yet another 6 weeks.
Housing Secretary, Robert Jenrick, said, “It would ensure renters remained protected during this difficult time”.
Mr Jenrick said, “The ban on the enforcement of evictions by bailiffs would continue in all but the most serious cases”.
What can I do to protect my property?
There is very little a landlord or agent can do if the tenant has already fallen into areas or is not willing to pay their rent; however, we highly recommend taking out rent guarantee insurance on any property with a new or existing tenant. With our Premium Tenancy Management service, this comes as standard*. We can cover a tenant if they enter into breathing space and the service also include 15 months’ worth of rent cover along with £100k of legal fees.
