On 20 November 2020, Hodge Jones & Allen posted a blog explaining that there would be a temporary ban on most evictions until 11 January 2021, as a result of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
Despite the clear severity of the situation and despite numerous calls from charities and campaigners to extend the ban on evictions, the decision to do so was only announced on 8 January 2021, three days before the planned end. And even then, the ban has only been extended until 22 February 2021.
