Christopher Pincher – 2021 Comments on Protections for Renters

The comments made by Christopher Pincher, the Housing Minister, on 12 May 2021.

From the beginning of the pandemic, we have taken unprecedented action to protect renters and help keep them in their homes.

As COVID restrictions are eased in line with the Roadmap out of lockdown, we will ensure tenants continue to be supported with longer notice periods, while also balancing the need for landlords to access justice.

Crucial financial support also remains in place including the furlough scheme and uplift to Universal Credit.
