Covid 19 and Landlords

Notices seeking Possession

The Coronavirus Act 2020 tells us that from 27th March 2020, any claims in the system or about to go into the system will be affected by a 90 day suspension of possession hearings and orders. When the 3 month period is over, you as the Landlord will still have to obtain a court order in order to get the tenants out, you cannot force them out. 

We strongly advice that Landlords not to commence or continue eviction proceedings during this difficult time without a very good reason to do so.

There was a new announcement made by the government stating that the ban of evictions have been extended by 2 months. To get more information regarding this then please click here.
