Enable private tenants early release from tenancy agreements due to Covid-19

Petition Details

Bring in emergency measures to allow private tenants to leave their current tenancy agreement with a 1-month notice period, unless rent is frozen by the landlord.

Additional Information

A large number of private tenants have returned to family/friends homes to be with them during the current lockdown in the UK.

It is unfair to that many landlords can access a 3-month freeze on their property mortgages, but private tenants are still required to pay rent, which in many cases pays these mortgages.

4.6 million (20%) of the 23 million households in England rented their home from a private landlord in the 2 years from 2016 to 2018. This ranges from working professionals to students throughout the UK.
