Courts finally drop Covid eviction rules that have cost landlords thousands

The Master of the Rolls Sir Geoffrey Voss has revealed that the ‘overall arrangements’ brought in by courts to control and limit evictions during the pandemic have officially come to an end as of 1November.

This brings down the curtain on an 18-month period of extreme stress and additional expense for landlords seeking to evict tenants, unless they involved a narrow set of circumstances including ‘extreme rent arrears’ and anti-social behaviour.

Although expected at some point this year, as Covid restrictions relaxed, the key change for landlords is that those seeking to evict tenants will no longer have to undergo ‘review hearings’ before moving to ‘substantive hearings’. This means the long court delays and additional expense experienced by thousands of landlords during the pandemic will now become a thing of the past and eviction will hopefully return to some sort of pre-pandemic ‘normal’.
