Ban on evictions: Charity welcomes three month pause

The government’s announcement that no new eviction proceedings from either social or private rented accommodation can start for at least three months has been welcomed by Citizens Advice.

“This news will come as a huge relief to many people. These are extraordinary times and it’s great to see the government stepping up and acting quickly to make sure people don’t lose their homes as a result of this crisis” says Dame Gillian Guy, chief executive of Citizens Advice.

“We called for an end to evictions as part of our package of measures to help protect people from the worst financial impacts of the Coronavirus pandemic” she adds.


“The government should now rapidly introduce a wider range of support to protect people’s incomes, including increasing sick pay and ensuring benefits give people enough to live on.”

    ... " Citizens Advice is to use public funds to defend those caught shoplifting, even where the individual has admitted guilt to the offence " ....
    Truth of the matter is organisations like Shelter and Citizens Advice are publicly funded to Help those that breach the law and Tenancy contracts.
