Good news for many tenants, on the 21 August 2020 it was formally announced  that the stay on possession claims is to be extended by four weeks from 23 August 2020 until the 20 September 2020. 

This has been done on direction by the Lord Chancellor to the Master of the Rolls and the Civil Procedure Rules Committee who agreed by a majority to make the change. (see below extract)

 

Possession claims suspension extended 4 weeks

To all who are in arrears contact your landlord/Income Officer and and make arrangements to repay any arrears you owe as soon as possible as once possession proceedings are reinstated you risk losing your home. If need help and support to do this remember there are agencies who can help you.

  1. Really enjoyed the talk on 21.8.20, very informative, especially about buying/rent properties and options available, life time ISA’s. covid 19 situations especially for renters. Have made personal referrals to friends who need advice on these areas. Would differently recommend ‘debt today free tomorrow’ for one to one advice as specifically tailored to your needs from start to finish.
