Tenants who are concerned about possession proceedings restarting from the 23rd August, and are struggling with rent arrears, should make sure they speak to their landlord. An open and honest conversation with their landlord can alleviate a lot of stress for both parties.
Landlords may have had the benefit of a mortgage holiday but will be relying on their tenant to keep up their rent payments. By failing to communicate with their landlord, tenants may find that the landlord feels they have no choice but to start legal action.
For any assistance please contact Dutton Gregory Landlord and Tenant Department on 01962 844333.
The government’s decision to not extend the ban on landlords evicting renters beyond 23 August is a major concern for many private renters worried about being able to pay their rent when the coronavirus lockdown ends, according to Ringley property management.
