On the 5 June 2020, the Housing Secretary made an announcement that the suspension of evictions from Private or Social Landlords would be extended until 23 August 2020.

As a result of this decision it is unlikely that the vast majority of possession Hearings will be heard until the end of August going forward. In addition to this announcement the Master of the Rolls is setting up a working group to look at appropriate arrangements for when Possession Claims resume.

It is clear that the above decision is going to have an impact upon Landlords and Tenants and those unsure of their position or needing advice should contact us.
