The government has announced emergency legislation that will help support tenants over the winter months.
Eviction notice periods have been increased to six months. This means that tenants who are served notice will be able to stay in their homes until the end of March 2021. This will allow them extra time to find alternative support or accommodation.
Some exceptions remain, including where a tenant has demonstrated anti-social behaviour or committed fraud, and the landlord would like to rent the property to an alternative tenant.Read More
Local landlords are invited to a Central Bedfordshire-wide virtual forum, to hear about new legislation and find out how the council can support them.
Especially important in the light of the current pandemic, the Forum is planned for Wednesday, 29 July 2020, and is designed for local landlords, whether they have one property or more.
With COVID-19 advice from the National Residential Landlords Association, the online event will help local landlords make sense of the new renting landscape. It will also give private sector landlords the opportunity to ask questions, hear from specialist and make contacts with other landlords.Read More
