Robert Jenrick – 2021 Comments on Support for Renters

The comments made by Robert Jenrick, the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, on 14 February 2021.

We have taken unprecedented action to support renters during the pandemic including introducing a six-month notice period and financial support to help those struggling to pay their rent.

By extending the ban on the enforcement of evictions by bailiffs, in all but the most serious cases, we are ensuring renters remain protected during this difficult time.

Our measures strike the right balance between protecting tenants and enabling landlords to exercise their right to justice.
