Eviction U-turn and a shift in balance.
When the eviction ban was first extended back in June, I said the consequences would roll on and on.
 
Now, with a further four-week extension recently announced, I’m doubling down on that statement.
 
However, a surprise twist to the bombshell six-month notice period brings a touch of solace to landlords.
 
The government revealed that agents and landlords will only need to give four weeks’ notice of their intention to repossess a property for tenants who have committed anti-social behaviour.
And for those who have committed acts of domestic violence, only two weeks’ notice will need to be given. In cases of tenant rent arrears, landlords will now only be required to give four weeks’ notice where a tenant has built six months of arrears. It's good to see the balance finally shifting.
