Letting agents and landlords waiting for the evictions ban to end have been given much-needed good news.


The government revealed that bailiffs will be able to restart their work from 1st June.  At Thacker and Revitt we have been vigilant with our processes throughout the lockdowns and are very pleased that we have had no requirement for evictions or the use of a Bailiff through these times. 


Also from the 1st of June the length of time for the service of a section 21 notice, (should you wish to ask your tenants to vacate) will be changed from the six months to four months.


The announcement is part of a raft of changes to the evictions ban that are part of the government’s roadmap to normality for England and Wales and will see eviction restrictions being wound down.


Bailiffs re-starting will also coincide with a reduction in the Section 8 eviction notice period landlords must give to tenants from the current six months to four months.


Notice periods will then return to ‘normal’ on 1st October, so between two weeks and two months depending on the grounds being claimed.
