What you need to know about the eviction ban extension

The Government announced on Wednesday that both the ban on using bailiffs, and the longer notice periods for Section 21 and 8 will continue in the same form until the end of May.

This follows on from an announcement earlier in the week that court fees for online forms will increase from May of this year.

This extension is likely to be the final one, and landlords can expect to take the first steps toward normality in June.

In the meantime, the Government is encouraging landlords to work with their tenants to sustain tenancies wherever possible, something landlords have continued to do throughout the coronavirus pandemic despite a lack of financial support for the sector.
