3. Have you received notice to end your tenancy?

Your landlord can still serve you notice, but they cannot evict you.

Notices served from 26th March 2020 must give 3 months’ notice.

Notices served from 29th August 2020 must give 6 months’ notice.

Shorter notices are possible where tenants are in rent arrears of 6 months or more, or where there is anti-social behaviour. 

If you live with your landlord as a lodger, they do not require a court order to end your agreement to reside in their home.  Therefore, you may be asked to leave during this time.

If you have been served notice by your landlord, please do not delay in contacting us for advice and assistance, particularly if you are in arrears with your rent.  Financial assistance may be available in some instances to prevent you becoming homeless if your home is affordable longer term.
