Eviction orders set to rise after lockdown

Some tenants have been genuinely unable to pay their rent, while others are thought to have taken advantage of the regulations to avoid paying what they should, leaving landlords in financial trouble.

The courts and property law attorneys are going to have their hands full once tenant evictions are allowed, with a number of cases already lined up and waiting for the go-ahead to action.
