The “winter truce” starts on Friday 11th December and will run to 11th January 2021.

Currently, no notice of eviction may be served, nor may any evictions against residential tenants take place. This restriction ends on 11th January 2021, apart from in specific circumstances.

We are expecting further information from the Ministry of Justice in early January and our authorised High Court Enforcement Officers (HCEOs) are closely monitoring the situation.

As soon as we have further details on what the plans will be post 11th January, we will let you know. We will also be scheduling an online briefing.
