  • Emailing or texting a possession notice.

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

  • #2

    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 rent 2 properties next to each other from the same landlord.

          There has been much discussion and now I've been served with 2 opposed s25 notices one for each property.

          Both properties are used in connection with...

        • Planning permission
          We have recently been contacted to say that a unit does not have planning for workshop use but for office only. We bought the unit(s) and have owned for a number of years and this unit was a workshop then (and not offices). What is the planning rule on this type of thing? All the units that surround...

          The limit is 4 years for unauthorised building work, unless it also violates an existing planning condition, in which case it is 10 years.

          It is 10 years for unauthorised change of use.

          If I forfeit by peaceable entry, can I still apply for a repossession order? To secure having repossession.

        • Mixed use, Commercial law help needed!
          Advice needed, please.

          We recently took our l/l to court for non-protection of deposit. To cut a long story short, the court dismissed the case on the grounds that the tenancy was of mixed use class due to use also renting a shop on the side of the house (in the extension) therefore commercial...

          Thank you for the replies and sorry it's a bit vague. We rent a house and it has an extension on the side of the original house and within the extension is a shop that we also rent. When we first moved here I personally...
