*Attention Landlords and Letting Agents*

Updated: Nov 4, 2020

*Government announcement on possession claims*

The temporary increase in notice periods for evictions, including those announced in July, will be extended to 31 March 2021.

Notice periods in relation to all tenancies, which had been due to return to their pre-Covid position on 30 September 2020, will now be set at six months.

However, where the reasons for giving notice relates to anti-social behaviour or domestic violence, notice periods will revert to the pre-Covid position. The position will be reviewed in December 2020.

If you are a landlord or letting agent wanting to know how this will affect your properties please do not hesitate to contact Kirsty John on 01554 749144, alternatively on kirsty.j@dpalaw.co.uk
