Housing help measures via the Welsh Government:
The Welsh Government has ensured that the legislation being developed by the UK Government, to suspend evictions from social or private rented accommodation will apply to Welsh tenants.
New protection under the emergency bill will include:
- Landlords will be unable to start possession proceedings to evict tenants for at least a three-month period during the crisis and;
- The three-month mortgage payment holiday will be extended to Buy to Let mortgages to protect landlords.
The action is being taken to protect both tenants and landlords affected by Coronavirus.
It is vital that no renter in Wales will be forced out of their home during this difficult and unprecedented time. These measures will alleviate pressures on landlords to meet mortgage payments and will further reduce pressure on tenants as a result.
