Updated: Covid-19 guidance for landlords and tenants

The official guidance document setting out general advice and information predominantly for tenants and landlords in the private and social rented sector has been updated by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government.

The guidance covers issues which may arise during the current pandemic including what to do if a tenant is struggling with paying rent, advice around carrying out emergency repairs, and information on property viewings and moves within rented accommodation.

The guidance, which everybody is being urged to abide by, applies to England only. Some of the measures referred to also apply in Wales.
