The Jersey Tenants' Forum wants evictions and rent increases to be banned like they were in the first lockdown.
The emergency legislation was introduced in April 2020 to protect islanders who suddenly found themselves out of work and relying on the government's payroll co-funding scheme. However the rules were then scrapped in September.
The Forum is arguing that recent rises in coronavirus infections and business restrictions have resulted further job losses and insecurity, so renters need to be supported again. It says rent freezes and a ban on evictions by social housing providers should also be in place for private tenants.
The island's new Housing Minister, Deputy Russell Labey, says he wants to look more closely at the issues of "affordability and quality of housing in the island." He is due to have a meeting with the Jersey Tenants' Association next week and says he would need a lot of convincing to ask the States Assembly to vote it back into law.
Meanwhile, the UK's government has recently announced that a ban on evictions in England is to be extended until the end of March.
Since the ban was lifted in Jersey at the start of October 2020, the Jersey Landlord's Association says there have been 24 eviction cases brought before the Petty Debs Court, with 15 involving social housing and only six by private landlords. Three were linked to tenants at commercial properties.
