DfC guidance document to support tenants & landlords published

The Department for Communities (DfC) published a guidance document on the 17 June to support tenants and landlords in the social housing rented sector during the Covid-19 outbreak.

The document includes a range of guidance including:

  • what to do if a tenant is struggling with paying rent

  • health and safety advice for both tenants and workers when carrying out emergency repairs; and

  • house moves and eviction proceedings.

Paul Price, the Department’s Director of Social Housing Policy and Oversight has also written a letter to social tenants – this has been published alongside the guidance.

Both documents are available here.
