UK Housing Secretary steps up defence of eviction Bill

Critics have slammed the Bill which only extends eviction notice period from two to three months rather than banning the practice.

Jenrick has since taken to Twitter to defend the Bill, stating that highly misleading comments have been made about governments commitment to suspending rental evictions.

In a thread of Tweets, he said: “There can be no evictions as a result of Coronavirus for 3 months – as promised – and we’ve got the power to extend this if we need to.

“We are extending all notices, regardless of the type of eviction, to three months. This means tenants will have 3 months relief from any proceedings starting – mirroring the mortgage relief we are giving to landlords.”
