HOUSING LAW UPDATE - MORE TWISTS AND TURNS
- AuthorNigel Bescoby
Throughout the course of this year I have issued a series of blogs relating to Housing Law matters. The current pandemic has had a significant impact on both Landlords and Tenants. Claims for possession are due to resume as of Monday 21 September 2020.
You will have seen from previous blogs that there has been extensions to notice periods, talk of re-activation notices, review dates and Covid 19 cases. It is difficult to compile one blog which would cover all issues that a Landlord or Tenant may now face as from Monday.
During the ongoing pandemic myself, the Designated Civil Judge for Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire, District Judges and my colleagues from Local Authorities, Private law firms and Tenant Representatives have been meeting regularly by virtual conference to discuss the changes to Housing Law and more importantly how these matters can be resumed safely, when these matters return to Court.
I envisage during the course of this week that various bodies will start releasing guidance for us all to digest and consider.
As with anything the unknown is how all of these changes are going to work practically. We will simply just have to wait and see……
In light of the twists and turns my recommendation would be that Landlords and Tenants seek advice as soon as possible.
