Emergency laws mean that most housing association tenants who get an eviction notice are entitled to:
- 3 months notice if it was given between 26 March 2020 and 23 July 2020
- 6 months notice if it was given between 24 July 2020 and 30 September 2020 (unless the housing association is giving the notice on the grounds of anti-social behaviour in which case it is 3 months).
If you have received a section 21 or a section 8 notice from your housing association you should stay in your home. Evictions take time and you don’t have to leave at the end of your notice under current law.
All court proceedings for eviction are on hold until the 23 August 2020.
You should still pay your rent during any notice period.
