Tenancy Forms Confirm 3 Month Notice Period

Tenancy forms released overnight by the government appears to confirm that the notice period for evictions is extending from two months to three months.

However, there is no ‘complete ban’ on evictions during the Coronavirus outbreak as some commentators had anticipated.

Last week, the government pledged to introduce a ‘complete ban on evictions and additional protections for renters’ affected by Coronavirus – taken at the time to mean a complete ban on evictions being served.

But the Coronavirus Act which was given Royal Assent yesterday evening simply extends the notice required for possession from two months to three.

The new documents – updated model assured and secure tenancy forms – appear to confirm that, with an overarching government statement that says: “The prescribed forms that apply to secure tenancies have been changed to reflect the changes to possession procedures in the Coronavirus Act 2020. The amended forms now make it clear that court proceedings cannot begin earlier than three months from the date the notice is served.”

You can see the raft of paperwork issued by the government overnight here and here.
