Complete ban on evictions and additional protection for renters

The government has announced no renter in either social or private accommodation will be forced out of their home during this difficult time.

  • Emergency legislation will suspend new evictions from social or private rented accommodation while this national emergency is taking place.
  • No new possession proceedings through applications to the court to start during the crisis.
  • Landlords will also be protected as 3 month mortgage payment holiday is extended to Buy to Let mortgages.

At the end of this period, landlords and tenants will be expected to work together to establish an affordable repayment plan, taking into account tenants’ individual circumstances.
