The Government has announced that four-month notice periods for renters will remain in place until at least October.
As part of a phased approach, notice periods, previously extended to six months as an emergency measure during the pandemic, will be set at four months from 1 June.

Subject to the public health advice and progress with the roadmap, notice periods will return to pre-COVID-19 outbreak levels from 1 October. The current ban on bailiff-enforced evictions, introduced as an emergency measure during lockdown, will end on 31 May.
