Landlords in Wales will need to give tenants six-months’ notice when repossessing homes, under new rules announced by the Welsh Government in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The change, which comes into force from today, means that unless a tenant is being evicted on the grounds of anti-social behaviour, they will be entitled to six months’ notice instead of three months. This will apply for all notices of eviction issued until at least the end of September.
Eviction proceedings against tenants in social and private rented accommodation have been suspended in courts in Wales and England until August 23.
