Coronavirus (COVID-19)—business eviction ban extended to end of March 2021

The Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government has announced that the business eviction ban will be extended until the end of March 2021 in order to protect commercial tenants, who have been financially affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, from eviction. This final extension will provide landlords and tenants three months to come to an agreement on unpaid rent, with further guidance to support negotiations to be published in due course.

In addition, the government will be launching a review of the current commercial landlord and tenant legislation which considers 'how to enable better collaboration between commercial landlords and tenants and also how to improve the leasing process to ensure our high streets and town centres thrive as we recover from the pandemic and beyond'. The review will take place in early 2021.
