Update: COVID-19 Omnibus Bill passes to restrict tenancy terminations during serious outbreaks
Published 29 Oct 21
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(external link).
