Tagged with:

  • Tenancy

The Government has passed legislation that can restrict tenancy terminations when people are required to stay at home in accordance with a COVID-19 Public Health Response order.

This now means that the restrictions to tenancy terminations can be switched on and off by Ministerial Order (a ‘COVID-19 tenancies order’) in response to public health measures which generally restrict people from moving house.

These restrictions do not currently apply.

COVID-19 information for tenants and landlords is located on the Tenancy Services website.
