    Possession Notices Back to Pre-COVID Length

    When COVID hit us back in March 2020, none of us had any idea of the impact this would have on our lives and how every sector would be affected – good or bad (there are always winners and losers after all).

    As it became apparent that COVID was going to be around for a while and many people furloughed, the Government deemed it necessary to bring in additional measures to stop any tenants being evicted from their homes, especially as there was nowhere to go: hotels, etc. were all closed.

    The extension of the possession notices from 2 months to 6 months caused huge ramifications to landlords who already had tenants in rent arrears.

    Some landlords have been incredibly generous to their tenants where COVID had an impact, and either came up with a payment plan or, in some cases, gifted a month’s rent.

    There will always be people who like to use the system, thankfully this is not the majority of tenants.

    The government then confirmed that, from the 1st of October, possession notices would revert to as they were in to pre-COVID times, meaning landlords can now give their tenants 2 months’ notice to vacate the property through a Section 21 notice for the time being. Section 8 notices have also reverted to pre-COVID rules.

    If you need help or advice on your tenancy management then please do not hesitate to contact us. We are not just good; we are amazingly good!

     

    Have a good month!

    NOTICE PERIOD CHANGE FROM 1ST JUNE TO TENANTS

    NOTICE PERIOD CHANGE FROM 1ST JUNE TO TENANTS

    If there is one thing that has kept letting agents busy over the last 3 to 4 years, it is the continuous changes within legislations.

    COVID-19 has also had a massive part since March 2020, with how much notice a landlord can give a tenant to gain their property back. In normal times, (pre-COVID) a Section 21 (Form 6a) notice would be given to the tenant giving 2 months notice to vacate. However, the Government extended this notice to 6 months, which in some circumstances across the country caused absolute mayhem. This being particularly difficult for landlords whose tenants were already in serious rent arrears. If there was ever a time for a landlord to have a rent guarantee in place then this was and still is the time.

    From the 1st June, the notice period is being reduced to 4 months and then to 2 months notice from the 1st August 2021.

    Notice periods for the most serious cases that present the most strain on landlords will remain lower:

    1. Anti-social behaviour (immediate to 4 weeks’ notice)
    2. Domestic abuse in the social sector (2 to 4 weeks’ notice)
    3. False statement (2 to 4 weeks’ notice)
    4. 4 Months’ or more accumulated rent arrears (4 weeks’ notice)
    5. Breach of immigration rules ‘Right to Rent’ (2 weeks’ notice)
    6. Death of a tenant (2 months’ notice)

     

    Bailiffs are also able to carry out evictions from June too.

    Remember a good agent is worth every penny when you know you can sleep peacefully at night.
