Good news for landlords, eviction notices can once more be given from 1 June 2021. From 1 June 2021 until at least the end of September 2021, landlords will only have to give four months' notice of eviction, instead of the six months required since the start of the pandemic. After this period, likely from 1 October 2021, notice periods will return to what they were pre-pandemic, when landlords were required to typically give two months' notice.
There will be some exceptions where four months' notice isn't required however, including if eviction is for anti-social behaviour (in which case landlords can give immediate or up to four weeks' notice) or the death of a tenant (two months' notice). Notice periods for cases where there is four or more months’ of unpaid rent will reduce to two months’ notice from 1 August 2021. For more up to date details visit: Evicting tenants (England and Wales): Section 21 and Section 8 notices – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk).
