The draft regulations making it mandatory for anyone entering a registered care home in England to have been double vaccinated unless they are clinically exempt were made on 22 July 2021.
As the end of the current eviction stay looms nearer, the Government has announced a further extension on the stay on evictions until 31 May 2021 and an extension on the requirement for six months’ notice to be given to tenants in a move to provide further protection to tenants as the country moves through the roadmap back to normality.
On 10 March 2021, the Housing Secretary, Rt Hon Robert Jenrick MP announced that:
- The residential eviction ban is to be extended from 31 March 2021 to 31 May 2021, meaning that no evictions can take place during this time unless the matter falls within one of the exceptional cases. For further information on the exceptions to the eviction ban, please see our previous ebriefing on this topic here.
- The requirement to provide six months’ notice to tenants before possession proceedings can be issued (save for in exceptional circumstances) has also been extended until 'at least' 31 May 2021. Our previous ebriefing detailing the requirement for a six-month notice period to be given and the exceptions to this rule can be found here.
Until the legislation setting out the finer detail is published, it is not clear whether there will be any changes to the exceptions to the eviction ban or the requirement to give a six-month notice.
The Government has suggested that they will seek to move away from emergency protections in June 2021, bringing hope that this will be the last extension.
