As a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, Welsh Government has announced new Regulations that temporarily extend the minimum notice periods landlords must give to tenants with Assured and Assured Shorthold tenancies.
These will come into effect on Friday 24th July 2020. In summary, this means that:
• A 6 month notice period will apply to section 8 notices issued on or after 24 July 2020 except those issued on grounds relating to anti-social behaviour (for which a 3 month notice period will continue to apply); and
• A 6 month notice period will apply to notices issued on or after 24 July 2020 under section 21 of the Housing Act 1988
