The current situation is nothing if not complicated, however, I will try and set out a summary of where we appear to be now and where we appear to be heading. The first thing to keep in mind is that England and Wales are now on slightly different systems. Wales has already introduced a requirement for a 6 months’ notice period. Notice periods in England were still, at the time of writing this, 3 months. This had been the case for all notices that were served on or after 26th March 2020; however on 29th August 2020 the notice period extended to 6 months for most notices. This is intended to ensure that tenants are not made homeless over the winter period.
