Am I permitted to serve an eviction notice still?

Since 26 March 2020, temporary laws have required landlords to give renters three months’ notice if they intend to seek possession.

Notice periods have been extended accordingly, which will affect the date when court proceedings can be issued. 

This protection covers most tenants in the private and social rented sectors in England and Wales including tenancies under the Rent Act 1977, the Housing Act 1985, the Housing Act 1996 and the Housing Act 1988. 

The provisions may be changed and the progress of proceedings may still be frozen for a longer period, subject to further amendment by the Government.
