Landlord Tenant Eviction Ban Extended
Landlord Eviction Ban Extended
In another blow for landlords with tenants not paying their rent, the UK government has announced another extension to the current ban on bailiff-enforced evictions in England until May 31.
From June the ban will “taper” off, leaving landlords confused since no details have been released on exactly how this will take effect.
Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick said: “The government will consider the best approach to move away from emergency protections from the beginning of June, taking into account public health advice and the wider roadmap.”
Ben Beadle, chief executive of the National Residential Landlords Association, said: “The further extension to the repossessions ban will do nothing to help those landlords and tenants financially hit due to the pandemic.
“Given the cross-sector consensus for the need to address the rent debt crisis, it suggests the government are unwilling to listen to the voices of those most affected.
“If the Chancellor wants to avoid causing a homelessness crisis, he must develop an urgent financial package including interest free, government guaranteed loans to help tenants in arrears to pay off rent debts built since March 2020.
“This is vital for those who do not qualify for benefit support. Without this, more tenants face losing their homes, and many will carry damaged credit scores, making it more difficult to rent in the future and causing huge pressure on local authorities when they can least manage it.”
The announcement today means that until the 31st May private landlords will need to continue giving tenants six months’ notice before they can repossess properties, except in the following circumstances:
- Anti-social behaviour (four weeks’ notice)
- False statements provided by the tenant (two to four weeks’ notice)
- Over 6 months’ accumulated rent arrears (four weeks’ notice)
- Breach of immigration rules under the ‘Right to Rent’ policy (three months’ notice).
The courts already have a huge backlog of cases to clear, which means actually gaining possession of a property following legal and enforcement action could take considerably longer than six months.
Buy-to-let landlords have been hit with a raft of punitive tax measures and are unlikely to win any public sympathy.
The continued eviction ban will not help the millions of property investor landlords running small businesses with mortgages, trying to build up a pension or supplement their income in retirement.
With the country is facing a pensions timebomb, people who take the initiative to provide for their own retirement should be encouraged with tax breaks.
