Residential tenants will be supported as the ban on bailiff-enforced evictions in all but the most serious circumstances, such as incidents of fraud or domestic abuse, and the requirement for landlords to provide 6-month notice periods to tenants before they evict will also be extended until at least 31 May.
Business owners are being given extra support after the government extended the ban on commercial evictions for a further 3 months. The decision will help those worst affected by the pandemic, such as bars and restaurants, get back to business in May when doors fully reopen for hospitality no earlier than 17 May.
Housing Secretary, Rt Hon Robert Jenrick MP said: “It is right that as we move through the roadmap, we ensure that businesses and renters continue to be supported.
“We have taken unprecedented action to support both commercial and residential tenants throughout the pandemic – with a £280 billion economic package to keep businesses running and people in jobs and able to meet their outgoings, such as rent.
“These measures build on the government’s action to provide financial support as restrictions are lifted over the coming months – extending the furlough scheme, business rates holiday and the Universal Credit uplift.”
Business Secretary, Rt Hon Kwasi Kwarteng MP said: “We’re doing everything we can to ensure businesses get the support they need to get through this pandemic and reopen when it is safe to do so.
“I know business owners will welcome this latest package of support and the breathing space it will give them to prepare for a safe reopening, and, ultimately, to build back better.”
