Private Rented Housing: Coronavirus
To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, pursuant to the Answer of 18 May 2020 to Question 45293 on Private Rented Housing: Coronavirus, what criteria his Department uses to determine the needs of (a) tenants and (b) landlords in relation to the lifting of the temporary ban on evictions from residential properties.

On 5 June the Government announced that the current suspension of possession proceedings would be extended by two months until 23 August 2020. This means that no action to evict a tenant will proceed before 24 August 2020.

The Government listens to a variety of stakeholders that represent landlords and tenants. As the Government takes steps in the next phase of the COVID-19 response, we will consider how measures should adapt to ensure they reflect public health guidance and the changing nature of this wider context recognising the interests of both tenants and landlords.
