Latest Government Information Regarding Landlord Notice Periods

Updated: 14 September 2022

The following advice is from the Government website who are legally responsible for the content:

From 1 June, notice periods that are currently 6 months will reduce to at least 4 months.

Notice periods for the most serious cases that present the most strain on landlords will remain lower:

  • anti-social behaviour (immediate to 4 weeks’ notice)
  • domestic abuse in the social sector (2 to 4 weeks’ notice)
  • false statement (2 to 4 weeks’ notice)
  • 4 months’ or more accumulated rent arrears (4 weeks’ notice)
  • breach of immigration rules ‘Right to Rent’ (2 weeks’ notice)
  • death of a tenant (2 months’ notice)

Notice periods for cases where there is less than 4 months’ of unpaid rent, will reduce again to 2 months’ notice from 1 August. This is to support both landlords and tenants and responds to the greater difference between COVID and pre COVID notice periods for rent arrears.
