Private Tenancies (Coronavirus Modifications) Bill 2020: extension of eviction notice period

STATUS: Active
Policy Details:

Extends eviction notice period [notice to quit period] to 12 weeks. Minister Hargey: “This legislation will ensure that no renter in private accommodation will be forced out of their home during this difficult time. Landlords will now be required to give tenants 12 weeks’ notice to quit before seeking a court order to begin proceedings to evict.”

What This Means:

The 'notice to quit' period has been extended to 12 weeks. Only after the 12 weeks' notice can a landlord seek a court order to get possession of the property. These measures are in place until 30 September 2020.
