    Emailing or texting a possession notice.

    Would a possession notice sent via email or text be legal in court?


    Must be written, sent to the address, even nailed to the front door.

    Do you mean an S21 to get back property.

    People change email address, phone numbers. lose their phone.
    They dont lose the house address.


      Commercial so presumably not s21.

      What does the tenancy say, if anything, about how notices may be served?

      Are you asking as tenant, landlord....?
      I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...


        I am assuming this is in relation to your tenant who has vacated a room on first floor level. It all really depends on whether the tenant is actually a tenant or a licensee. In an event have a look at what your agreement says, without wording that specifically allows service of notice via email, then it is a defective notice. Your actions may have indicated an acceptance, however.
        [I]The opinions I give are simply my opinions and interpretations of what I have learnt, in numerous years as a property professional, I would not rely upon them without consulting with a paid advisor and providing them with all the relevant facts[I]
