Can I evict a tenant under the current lockdown regulations?
Under the adjusted Alert Level 3 lockdown regulations, a person may not be evicted from their home or have their place of residence demolished for the duration of the national state of disaster, unless a court order authorising an eviction has been granted by a competent court. Therefore, if you want to evict a tenant, the need for legal representation is paramount to ensure compliance with all regulations, including rental housing legislation.
