Government extends the ban on evictions for another 4 weeks

Summary

Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick announces that the ban on evictions has been extended for another 4 weeks, which takes the total ban to 6 months. Landlords will also be required to provide tenants with 6 months’ notice until at least the end of March 2021 (except for cases raising serious issues such as anti-social behaviour and domestic abuse). The government will keep these measures under review. When eviction hearings restart, the courts will 'carefully prioritise' the most serious cases.
