Emergency laws were introduced in Wales to deal with evictions during the pandemic.
Between 29 September 2020 and 24 March 2022, most tenants in Wales were entitled to 6 months’ notice before their landlord could start court action to evict them. This included assured tenants and assured shorthold (‘starter’) tenants.
The emergency laws ended on the 24 March 2022. This means, if you receive a notice after the 24 March 2022, the amount of notice you are entitled to depends on the type of tenancy you have and the reason (or ‘ground’) that your landlord wants to evict you. See the advice below for more information.
Court proceedings for eviction were suspended for a time but the courts have now been able to start to deal with evictions again. If you receive any letters from the court take a look at our advice on court proceedings to find out what happens next.
