Managing properties through the eviction ban extension

Published in Lettings on 7 July 2021 by our Marketing Team

Over the course of the eviction ban for residential tenancies, the government have looked to balance support for tenants and landlords, helping those unable to meet their rent payments whilst recognising the strain this puts on landlords who may depend on the income.

 
As of June 1st, notice periods were reduced from six to four months for residential tenancies.
 
This is except for situations including anti-social behaviour, with a shorter notice period of two weeks.
 
Compared with homeowners, it’s estimated that tenants are more than three times as likely to be behind with rent or bills, 6% and 19% respectively.*
 
With courts still prioritising hearings based on severity, it’s important to look for a resolution to rent arrears or disagreements where able between parties.
 
As leading lettings agents, we facilitate communications between landlords and tenants to offer our expert services.
 
What about for commercial landlords?
 
Whilst the ban has lifted for residential agreements, the ban on evicting firms for unpaid commercial rent is to be extended for a further nine months.
 
Many businesses within the hospitality sector are yet to reopen and resume trading as normal, all the while accruing an estimated £5bn in rent debt.

One in three properties receive an offer one hour after viewing

The housing market once again exceeds expectations after a poor reception from the chancellor’s mini-budget and regular talk of a possible slowdown, as current research suggests that in 2022, almost a third (31%) of properties are now receiving offers within an hour, compared to a mere 7% in 2018.
