Notice period for tenants is starting to go back to pre-pandemic levels
14/05/2021

 

The housing minister back in August last year announced “we have taken unprecedented action to protect renters and help keep them in their homes” by extending the notice period a Landlord must give from 2 months to 6 months.

 

The extended 6 months will be dropped to 4 months from 1st June 2021.

 

This change will both help the Landlords, who have maintained tenancies throughout the pandemic with potential personal costs and hardship, whilst also continuing to protect tenants for the months ahead.

 

Notice periods for the most serious cases with the largest strain on landlords will remain lower:

 

Anti-social behaviour (immediate to 4 weeks’ notice)

Domestic abuse in the social sector (2 to 4 weeks’ notice)

False statement (2 to 4 weeks’ notice)

Over 4 months’ accumulated rent arrears (4 weeks’ notice)

Breach of immigration rules ‘Right to Rent’ (2 weeks’ notice)

Death of a tenant (2 months’ notice)
