    Serving notice help

    Hello,
    hoping to get some advice from the experts!
    I have never had to serve notice before and I am having to do so now because I want to sell the property (personal reasons).
    This tenancy began 14th October 2017, it is a 12 month contract, ending 13th October 2017.
    I plan to visit the tenants next weekend, Saturday 22nd September to sit down and respectfully let them know.

    I have found a “form 6a” online.. and I see there is a date I must insert. Would this be “Saturday 22nd November”? And if we agree they can stay longer whilst property for sale, is this okay?
    Many thanks in advance

    Answers to these questions would help.....

    Assuming assured shorthold tenancy, assuming England, then yes Form 6A. Notice does not end tenancy, it merely allow you to apply for possession in the county court after the notice period in the notice and within 6 months of the notice being served. The notice period is "at least two months" from when the notice is deemed served, and the date (almost certainly in law) cannot be before the fixed term ends. What if anything does your tenancy agreement say about how service of notice may be effected?

    Have you complied with all your legal requirements for which non-compliance would render you unable to give a valid section 21 notice? Tenancy deposit protection & associated prescribed information, annual gas safety certificate, energy performance certificate, property/landlord licensing if that is required.....

      yes all legal requirements complied with, simply just double checking the date is ok for the form?

      its a joint tenancy in England. There should be no problems as I know they wish to move to a bigger property anyway. I just wanted to make sure I’m completing this form correctly?

        If you're giving them the notice by hand on 22 September, whether the date of 22 November is okay depends on what your tenancy agreement say about how service may be effected and when a notice is deemed served. Since you haven't answer that question, we can't answer yours.

          So you'll be fine with all of this then?

          Wishing to move into a bigger property is all very well. Many would like that too, but have no prospects nor funding to do so...
          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...

                Looking for advice , I signed a 12 month rental with my boyfriend , we each paid 900 pounds deposit to the deposit company . He moved out 6 months later to live with another woman, but continued to pay half the rent until the lease finished. I have messages from him saying he did not want his deposit...

                This was a joint T, when any remaining deposit should have been paid to 'lead T' for onward distribution.
                I might suggest ex b/f may like to sue me for his share of remaining deposit, if I did not want to reimburse him 900. quid.

                Can anybody help please. I own a flat that is fully managed by a letting agency I’ve dealt with for 12 years. I received a letter from a debt collection agency asking me to ring them. I phoned them today and have found out there is an outstanding bill (which has been sold to the debt collection agency)...

                Ask B Gas for copy of who signed signed the supply Contract & date.
                Supply B Gas with copy of T dated AST and meter readings.
                You are liable for any unsubstaniated void periods. Ts were aware of your lack of experience.

                Hi all,

                I hope I chose the relevant forum to post my query to - please forgive me and correct me if I am wrong.

                My rental flat's (one of 22 'executive-style' flats in a 2-block development built in 1999) boiler stopped serving hot water to my tenants a week ago. I had a boiler...

                You are unlikely to get permission for a hole in the wall sooner than you can get a roofer to replace the roof vent.

                Thanks for the replies. The letting agent has said they absolutely did not put the bill in my name. It seems as if the previous tenant has put the bill in my name (from the tenancy agreement) including their arrears, which is why the bill is high for an empty flat for one month. Surely this is frau...

                I moved in a flat last Tuesday. I found the fridge is not cool enough but the freezer works well. However, on Saturday the fridge/freezer didn't work. Foods in freezer began to thaw. The shelf in freezer is much warmer than the other part.

                I contacted with the agency and they said I should...

                If it is on the inventory and there is nothing to say that the T is responsible, then I would say it is the LL's responsibility.

                Personally I have only ever provided fridges and freezers on the basis that if they break, then the T repairs and the T can then take it away with them.

                Hi All

                Our tenants were given notice and we went to court to regain possession. This has been granted by the County Court and she was supposed to leave ysterday. While I believe the tenants have moved out, I also believe there are still a few odd belongings there. At what point can I (or...
