Covid-19: Landlord Harassment
A free tenant letter to landlord

Are you struggling to pay the rent due to the Coronavirus-19? Is your landlord harassing you for your rental arrears or attempting to evict you during this coronavirus period? If so we may be able to help you.

Government Protection Of Renters During The Coronavirus Period

The Coronavirus Act 2020 (the Act) was enacted on 25th March 2020, thereby providing a package of measures to protect renters in England and Wales affected by the coronavirus. As a result, no renter in either social or private accommodation will be forced out of their home during this difficult time for at least a 3 month period from 25th March 2020 to 30th June 2020.
