Ban on evictions during pandemic extended until September in England and Wales

The Labour leader called it an “11th hour U turn”.

The decision to extend a ban on evictions in England and Wales is good news for hundreds of thousands of people who feared losing their homes in the middle of a pandemic.

The ban will now last until September 20.

The government also announced today in most cases in England renters will get six months notice of any eviction – at least until March next year.
