What are my rights/obligations as a result of the Coronavirus Act?

The Government has now brought the Coronavirus Act 2020 into force. This act implements a number of temporary changes to the way the private rented sector operates.

Evictions are now on hold until after 31st May 2021 except in limited circumstances.

Please see Gov.UK for up to date guidance.

If you're a landlord...

  • Watch our webinar video (first broadcast on 15 April 2020) brought to you in partnership with Ashford’s LLP Solicitors.
