The Government has announced a further extension of the ban on residential evictions, until 21 February 2021.  This may be extended further and this has not yet been ruled out by Ministers.
The previous ban was due to expire on 11 January 2021 but had an exception for tenancies where there were 9 months’ worth of rent which had accrued before 23 March 2020 – in effect prior to the coronavirus pandemic.
