Government tweaks Covid guidance for rental sector ahead of new rules
The government has revised its official guidance for the private rental sector and local authorities in the light of imminently-changing Coronavirus advice.
The updates are not fundamental but reflect the fact that on March 29 – Monday – the ‘stay at home’ rule lapses, meaning the return of the ‘Rule of Six’ for outdoor gatherings.
From Monday, either six people or two households will be allowed to meet outdoors, including in private gardens. Rules which came into place on March 8 only allowed people to meet outdoors with one person from outside their household, so the change from March 29 will allow for more socialising.
