Coronavirus: Housing support - House of Commons Briefing Paper

This House of Commons Briefing Paper presents the government's announcements to support renters, owner-occupiers, buy-to-let landlords and rough sleepers, as part of the response to the effect of the virus on the UK economy.

The briefing paper outlines and provides information on:

  • The suspension of new evictions from social or privately rented accommodation for a minimum of three months after notice of eviction is given.
  • The three-month mortgage payment holiday, which will apply to buy-to-let landlords and owner-occupiers.
  • The government's funding to support local authorities to help rough sleepers during the outbreak.
  • Public Health England guidance on the provision of support by holiday accommodation providers to help rough sleepers find temporary accommodation.

The paper also presents web links for Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish Government information and advice on Coronavirus.
