    Phased reduction in notice period

    Down from 6 to 4 months "until at least October", and if everything goes to plan re. COVID-19, 2 months from then.

    Bailiffs enforcement ban to end.

    4 weeks section 8 ground 8 down from 6 months arrears to 4 months. New grounds included on "reduced" notice period.

    EDIT: 2 months s8 notice if less than 4 months arrears from 1 August, probably, the press release wording is contradictory at the moment.

    "Bailiffs have been asked not to carry out an eviction if anyone living in the property has COVID-19 symptoms or is self-isolating."

    So easy to defeat the lifting of the ban then!

      A classic charter for the feckless. So not a positive test result !!! Just feeling a bit '' poorly'' with a bit of a '' cough''. God help us all.

          Slackjawecyokel - I read this news 100 times to make sure I am not dreaming! But still cannot believe it.



          Now I have read somewhere that County Court bailiffs will write to your solicitor to confirm that you still want to proceed with the eviction. The solicitor will need to fill in the form and send it to the court. So you and I need to make sure that the solicitor won't forget to do it.

              Do we know how it will work with serving notice of eviction date ? If using HCEO can the required 2 weeks notice start before June 1st ?

                Perce some positive news!

                could I ask : I read eviction ban may only be lifted for mandatory grounds possession order. Does this apply to section 21 induced possession order. I read my court letter which says possession order granted on mandatory grounds - therefore could I apply for a county court warrant now to be actioned after eviction ban is lifted pending bailiff availability.

                  Hello OS7

                  Yes you can apply now. Why not ? I have my warrant already. My PO is s21 accelerated. Your PO is S21 standard which is also mandatory.

                  I remember you wanted to wait with applying for the warrant until the ban is lifted.

                  What is S21 induced possession order?

                    I suspect with the ease at which tests can be taken, with almost immediate results, positive covid tests would be a requirement to defeat a warrant.

                      Hi Perce,
                      what I meant was - possession order was granted on the basis of section 21 notice....
                      when I read the news, it sounded as if, only possession order granted via section 8 only, would be allowed bailiff action...perhaps I have misunderstood.

                      My court order does says “mandatory” ; could I ask if all possession order via section 21 would be mandatory. My tenant is sort of protesting that it is “no fault” eviction and he will be able to contest this in court again. And furthermore he also said no fault eviction will not be allowed to go ahead when ban is lifted.

                      Could someone tell me where the government guidance document would be on this topic “ lifting of eviction ban”

                      Ta

                        OS7 - I just spoke to my eviction company and they said that lifting of the ban includes s21.

                          It applies to both S8 and S21.

                          “Bailiffs will once again be able to undertake evictions from 31 May 2021. Two-weeks’ notice is required to be given to tenants before evictions can take place therefore the earliest evictions can take place will be mid-June.

                          Where the occupier is self-isolating or has Covid-19 symptoms the appointment will not be carried out.”

                            The tenant is clearly a slippery character and if they pick up on the get out clause of '' self isolating'' etc then you may have trouble.

                              On the other hand I doubt that bailiffs are daft -I doubt they will have the wool pulled over their eyes by a tenant faking it for long.
