Evictions ban: Updated guidance relating to possession actions

Updated guidance has been issued relating to possession actions to reflect the extension of the bailiff enforcement ban until 8 March, which in effect, applies to notices that may be served 14 days earlier.

The revised guidance for landlords, letting agents and tenants explains the possession action process in the county courts in England and Wales.

It reflects the introduction of national lockdown measures and the extension of measures to prevent the enforcement of evictions in England and Wales, and to provide information about how these operate.

Housing minister Robert Jenrick, who announced last week that the ban on bailiff evictions would be extended to 21 February in England, said: “At the start of this pandemic we made sure that the most vulnerable in society were protected. This winter, we are continuing in this vein and redoubling our efforts to help those most in need.”
