Due to the coronavirus pandemic the government introduced measures to protect tenants from eviction.
Most recently, in most situations, landlords had to give tenant’s at least 6 months’ notice before being able to issue court proceedings to gain possession of their property.
National lockdown restrictions are easing and so too, are the laws which were put in place by government in respect of landlord and tenants.
From 01 June 2021, notice periods have been reduced. Landlords must now give tenants at least 4 months’ notice before commencing legal proceedings to gain possession.
