Evictions Update

UK Government have issued a statement today announcing the suspension of evictions in relation to residential property until at least February, and further introducing a new mediation process. The announcement does not impact the issuance of new claims, or existing claims already in the court system. The ban will however mean that even landlords who have already successfully obtained a possession order will have to wait longer to regain possession of their property.
Meanwhile landlords of commercial property also remain unable to pursue forfeiture until at least 1 April 2021. Measures designed to prevent forfeiture on the basis of commercial rent arrears have been extended.
Although the above will be frustrating for landlords, investors and agents there are a number of possible alternatives. The courts remain open and able to process money claims and these can be a useful alternative to possession claims and forfeiture proceedings.
