The Covid-19 crisis has put landlords and letting agents – to say nothing of tenants – in a new and completely unprecedented situation. In this article we will look at ways to deal with and help tenants during the coronavirus pandemic. We will also look at what you can do if your tenants cannot pay their rent.
Property owners who are facing financial difficulties brought about by the coronavirus are extended a three-month mortgage payment holiday, but the government has suspended tenant evictions. The government will advise landlords to show some compassion and allow affected tenants to stay in their homes wherever possible, meaning landlords won’t be able to start the process of evicting their tenants from social or private rented stock for at least three months.
