Ban on evictions extended by 2 months to further protect renters.
According to the GOV.UK website all evictions from social, private and commercial landlords in England and Wales remain suspended until 23 August 2020.
• Suspension of evictions from social, commercial or private rented accommodation extended by 2 months.
• New court rules will ensure vulnerable renters will be protected when the suspension of evictions ends.
• Government committed to ensuring that no one is evicted this summer due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Ministers are also working with the judiciary, legal representatives and the advice sector on arrangements, including new rules, which will mean that courts are better able to address the need for appropriate protection of all parties, including those shielding from coronavirus.
