MadridThe president of the Spanish government, Pedro Sánchez, announced on Wednesday in an appearance in Congress that the executive will extend three months, until August, the extraordinary measures related to housing driven by coronavirus. On the one hand, the possibility of extending rental contracts without changing either the price or the conditions, and on the other, the possibility of requesting a moratorium or a partial cancellation of rent.

The Spanish government will also extend the suspension of evictions in the case of vulnerable people. "These are urgent measures," stressed Sánchez.
