The Government has today (8th June 2020) announced that it will extend the moratorium on residential evictions until at least 23 August 2020.

There is no news as yet as regards an extension in respect of the suspension of forfeiture of commercial leases.

This will leave many landlords unable to re-let properties where they are receiving no rent, in some cases affecting their own ability to pay mortgages, even with payment holidays available.
