Notice periods in relation to possession proceedings for certain residential tenancies were increased with the introduction of Schedule 29 of the Coronavirus Act 2020. This protected residential tenants from eviction during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Coronavirus Act 2020 (Residential Tenancies and Notices) (Amendment and Suspension) (England) Regulations 2021 (SI 2021/994) (Regulations) will suspend various provisions of Schedule 29 of the Coronavirus Act 2020, and therefore the Regulations contain the following:
From 1st October 2021, in England, the minimum notice to be given when serving a section 21 notice will be two months.
