The Rent Control (Temporary Provisions) (Amendment) (No. 3) Law of 2020, was ruled as unconstitutional by the Supreme Court following its referral by the President of the Republic of Cyprus.

On 5 October 2021, the Rent Control (Temporary Provisions) (Amendment) (No. 3) Law of 2020 (the Law) which was approved on 9 October 2020 and reaffirmed by the House of Representatives on 12 November 2020, was ruled as unconstitutional by the Supreme Court following its referral by the President of the Republic of Cyprus.

According to the Supreme Court’s ruling, as the Law extended the moratorium on tenant evictions until December 2020 due to the pandemic, it had failed to adhere to the provisions of the Constitution. Τhe Law suspended all tenant eviction proceedings, limiting access to justice as the Courts were restricted from issuing eviction orders. In this respect, the Supreme Court ruled that the legislature had interfered with the judicial process and as a result, this formed a violation of the separation of powers.
