We know that this is a very difficult time and that the current situation may well lead to some issues that you have with your housing. The situation is changing rapidly and the government is currently responding with emergency legislation to cover evictions and more legislation may well come into force over the next few weeks.
We aim to keep up to date and if you have any specific questions then we are here to help you with them.
In the meantime we advise you to do what is best for you and your welfare, taking into account what the implications may be for your housing obligations.
Support from the University of London
Our partners at University Of London Housing Services have put together a handy legal guide on some of the key areas coming out of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak and its implications for your housing.
The guide covers queries such as:
- If you have left your home or London but your contract hasn’t ended
- The consequences of non-payment of rent
- If a flatmate is self-isolating or confirmed to have Coronavirus (Covid-19)
- If you fall behind on your rent because of Coronavirus (Covid-19) can you be evicted?
- If your Landlord is bringing round people for viewings
- If you are a lodger and you are asked to leave
