Notice time period to change
From 1 June, notice periods that are currently six months will reduce to at least four months. Notice periods for the most serious cases that present the most strain on landlords will remain lower. More information to follow or contact us now on the details below.
For current cases that are progressing through the courts a ‘Review Hearing’ is now being listed to determine whether the case should proceed. When notice of a Review Hearing is provided preparation is required in the form of a full bundle of papers and a witness statement from the landlord explaining what efforts have been made to communicate with the tenant, whether the tenant is claiming any benefits and any information on the impact of Covid on both tenant and any dependents and the landlord. The bundle must be sent to both the court and all tenants prior to the hearing. As this is an extra step outside Landlord Actions fixed fees there will be an extra charge for preparing and representing landlords at this hearing which will be communicated to all clients.
