A tenant in my House in Multiple Occupation (HMO) has Coronavirus, other tenants are worried about catching the virus, as a landlord am I obliged to remove them?
You cannot remove a tenant from their home because of the virus and landlords are not obliged to provide alternative accommodation for tenants if others in the property contract the virus.You may wish to direct your tenants to Government guidance
on what to do if someone in a household has contracted the virus, including self-isolating the whole household for 14 days and also Government guidance on cleanliness and hygiene for non-medical location.For further help and advice for landlords regarding Coronavirus read the government's guidance for landlords
on the provisions in the Coronavirus Act 2020.
