On 18th March 2020, the government said that it would present a complete ban on evictions affected by COVID-19; and this ban will stand for both social as well as private rented accommodation. Due to the fear that thousands of people could lose their homes as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, the government has now extended the ban until 20th September. Under this rule, landlords will now not be able to evict their tenants in England and Wales till further notice.
Ministers are working together with the courts and legislatures to make sure that courts in the UK can look after the interests of all parties involved, including the tenants and the landlords. Although most of the cases will be in favor of the tenants, renters will be getting a notice of six months if they are being evicted by their landlord.
